Fedora Core Lunapark reviews Fedora Core 5, and concludes: "I would only recommend FC5 to people who do not own Nvidia video cards or do not mind tweaking a lot default settings to get things working. Otherwise stay with what you are using and wait for SUSE 10.1 or Ubuntu's Dapper. But if you do stick with FC 5 and get past the quirks, it is quite impressive and I am already eagerly awaiting FC 6."

I have an Nvidia card and I haven't bothered to install the proprietary drivers yet since I don't play a lot of games and I don't care too much about 3D desktop special effects. The kernel problem has already been fixed you fussy paints out there. Just open a shell and type 'yum update kernel' and reboot afterwards. Not very difficult.

If you are looking for a decent cutting edge linux distro then FC5 is a good match. Gnome is much faster now, all my plug and play devices were detected, and the latest open office is working great. I am very happy with this release. I like the support you can get online from all the Fedora community users.
