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.

fedora 3 vs ubuntu
by lupusBE on Wed 24th Nov 2004 13:20 UTC

I think fedora 3 big advantages at the moment are:

- Networkmanager (easier for wifi)
- easier printer installation
- xorg 6.8
- not vanilla stuff, new stuff ;) (but this can make things unstable)
- zeroconfig/howl
- better internation support (chinese imput, UTF-8, etc)

bad:

- kudzu (fedora only)
- bloated
- 5 cd's
- config tools only working for fedora/Red hat
- not as community based as it should be

ubuntu is working on including the good stuff of fedora and not the bad so ;) ))

if you don't believe me try hoary
