Fedora Core Yet another review of Fedora Core 6. "I'm through hoping that the next version of Fedora Core will fix all of the problems with the previous release. Fedora's identity has gradually eroded over six releases, finally ending up as a second class clone of Ubuntu. On the other hand, Red Hat Linux was never really all that easy to install, configure, and use, so I guess this is just the natural evolution of a product that was destined to be eclipsed by more complete distributions like Mandriva and more easily configured distributions like SUSE."

Reading all the comments I cannot help but think that a lot of people here are experiencing some kind of Coca cola-Pepsi syndrome, noticed so many times in the Apple community. You like one and would criticize/kill anybody drinking the opposite. How sick can it get? And that in the "open source" community? The ALTERNATIVE? Right! But anyway, I have seen a lot of bad press for Fedora 6 and I cannot say that all of it is wrong. There are pluses and minuses but it seems the minuses keep adding with each release. Remember: criticism is a good thing and don't take it personally.

Nope, you're wrong. While I agree that criticism is good and fedora has its mistakes, this review didn't make one single attempt to review Fedora.

When you go with Fedora you go with FREE (yes, there are limits of free distro, and Fedora never denied that). Why would one review proprietary when review Fedora is beyond me.

People expecting what reviewer expected are much better off with some other distro.

First sentence on Fedora site could tell them all: "Fedora Core is a free operating system that offers the best combination of stable and cutting-edge software that exists in the free software world."

explains that even better.
