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.

bad - 5 cd's

How can that be bad when Fedora Core 3 includes more stuffs that cannot fit on a single CD hence the availability on DVD? Does Ubuntu include KDE, XFCE, development packages, etc on a single CD? You failed to understand FC3 is a general purpose OS while Ubuntu aims for desktop.

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 ;) ))
Then it won't be on a single CD anymore defeating Ubuntu goal.
