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).

Good review of FC5. I was pretty impressed with it when I loaded it on to my laptop Wednesday night. It loaded fine, it detected hardware fine. But I didn't test it as extensively as you because I don't use some of the featues like bluetooth or suspend to RAM.

The thing thats got me hooked on it is that it works better on my laptop than Ubuntu did. I just had to pop the dvd in and start loading. With Ubuntu the screen would go blank and I wouldn't have a console unless I typed in vga=771 before loading. Ubuntu would hang unless I disalbed something else as well, maybe the ACPI? That my change in dapper.

The problem that really drove me crazy though was the default touchpad functionality. Firefox would move pages Back and Forward in History just by touching the lower bottom of the touchpad.

I couldn't agree more. It wasn't specific to firefox, it was anything that had a tab to include a terminal window. Thanks for the tip on how to disable it.
