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.

my take

I really have a problem with these "comparison" reviews, cause the reviewer is always more confident/educated about one of the distro's, in this case he is a ubuntu user so had many mistakes on his review of fedora like it doesn't have reiserFS, and he gets his 'bug report' from mailing lists.. i mean who do you expect to ask more questions on a user list, fedora users or recent debian converts? From this thread ubunto appears to have many more bugs.

I have to be honest I didn't finish the review after I was aware of his bias knowingly, or unknowingly it's still a waste of my time to expect an informative review.

Maybe take a fedora wizard and a ubuntu wizard and let them write point by point reviews, then maybe we'd get some facts rolling in.
