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.

RE: Why 2.6?
by J. M. on Wed 24th Nov 2004 01:48 UTC

I agree that 2.6 may not be stable for many people. I'm one of them, I've been trying to use 2.6.x for at least half a year on several Linux distributions, precompiled and self-compiled, but it was never acceptably stable, it could crash several times a day. 2.4 is perfectly stable, but 2.6, as I see from various comments, has indeed some problems and keeps changing/breaking stuff that was working before.
