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: Fedora Core 3

Urbuntu seems to be an interesting distribution.
I have been running Fedora Core 3 for a week (on my Thinkpad
laptop).

I also exprienced the bug in OpenOffice; doing a spellcheck on a Swedish document hangs the whole machine. A reboot is required. It was not even possible to login with ssh from a remote machine.

If I compare Fedora Core 3 with Mandrake 10.1, then Mandrake is a lot more stable.

Cheers,
Tomas
