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.

i left Fedora's build of OpenOffice out of the install (unchecked it) and downloaded OpenOffice from www.openoffice.org/ seems to fix any problems as i have not had any crashes with OPenOffice i use it quite regularly for printing customer recipts and accounting with the spreadsheet. since i dont need all the foreign language support, takes up less diskpace too that way...
