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.

> Devs should use the 2.6 kernel by all means.

Linux 2.6 is stable.

Do you know, Ubuntu ship the latest Gnome, hal, OpenOffice, etc...
Is it a problem or it is not ?

btw, Ubuntu use Linux 2.6.
Fedora use Linux 2.6 (and only Linux 2.6) since FC2.
Mandrake use Linux 2.6 since Mandrake 10.0.
SuSE since 9.1.
RHEL 4 will be out with Linux 2.6 in couple of month.

Who still want to use Linux 2.4 ?
- Debian
- Slack

Linux 2.6 is stable.
