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.

"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...

in order to clarify some things: i have used redhat 7.2, 7.3, 9 and fedora 2 and three for a considerable time. so please do not tell me that i am biased towards ubuntu. i have tested ubuntu first time in october this year, so how do you get to the conlcusion that i am more ubuntu-biased? i tried to write a review that is neutral and i installed the systems with similar packages in order to be able to write a more or less neutral article. if you do not like the outcome of the test, just ignore it.

just for your information: my main operating system is neither of the two distros but i won't tell you which distro it is. this would start another flamewar. ;)
