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.

Ubuntu All The Way
by LordRich on Wed 24th Nov 2004 00:13 UTC

I've been using Debian for a few years, and grew to love apt-get. Indeed, most of my servers run Debian. And so Ubuntu was an obvious choice of having a play with. I've run it as a desktop and a dedicated web server with no problems, and the updates are painless.

I ditched Redhat back around 7.1, so it would be unfair of me to comment on Fedora - but what little I've seen of Yum I've really liked. Enough to almost tempt me into trying Redhat again.
