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.

Same applies to MDK but not to the same extent - KDE in MDK is split somewhat further than stock KDE, and there are a few metapackages. I'm not sure many distros match that kind of pacakge count, though. Fedora certainly doesn't get near that level in its *official* repositories (even including that popular non-free one to match PLF). Does anyone have a figure for SuSE? Ubuntu certainly doesn't have that many *Ubuntu* packages either.
