Fedora Core It's been about 2.5 years since the first release of Fedora Core. And boy has it come long way! The new version of Fedora Core (FC) is featuring a number of goodies and performance enhancements as we describe below (and yes, it even includes a new logo).

"SuSE and Ubuntu will have to try harder this time to beat this Fedora"

Can I take it you feel Mandriva has it beaten already?

:D

Mandriva has been beaten already. Not because its not technically good, but the bugs and politics keep making it irrelevant. This is painful for me to accept because its my favourite Linux distro but over the last few years, Mandriva has shifted from being an innovator to being a follower.

Innovator to follower? Hum. Our network applet supported WPA six months before NetworkManager figured it out. No-one else has an interactive firewall. I upgraded my VMware test install of FC4 to FC5 last night; worked quite smoothly with yum following the instructions on the wiki, and it's all nice and polished (like all major distros these days), but I don't see anything particularly innovative - about the only thing I can think of is the X startup thing (which is neat). Other than that it just looks like a nice packaged GNOME desktop, just like my Ubuntu test install...
