Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y Linux distros are advancing everywhere. Not only servers but also on the desktop pc and notebooks. There are wild discussions, if Linux-Distributions are ready for serious business work or personal use. This critical review will deal with two long awaited Linux-distributions, Fedora Core 3 and Ubuntus Warty Warhog. Why these two? Because both feature Gnome 2.8 and it would not be a comparision on equal terms to compare Gnome to e.g KDE. Also, both use kernel 2.6.8+ and have their very own theme for the default desktop. Bluecurve for Fedora and Human for Ubuntu.

"However, the realist within me realizes that the rest of the internet makes heavy use of mp3, flash, java, etc"

internet was dependant on proprietary OS'es before. now its freebsd and linux. flash is just a few seconds of auto clicking a prompt in firefox. gcj java will be enabled through fc4. fc3 has valid and technical open source formats like ogg theora and ogg vorbis
