Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y Recently we've seen the releases of both Ubuntu 8.04 'Hardy Heron' as well as Fedora 9 'Sulphur', to mostly positive reviews. PCWorld Australia decided to pitch these two popular Linux distributions against one another.

The article is uninformed about the technologies used in Fedora.

For example, Pulse Audio was first introduced in F8, Ubuntu was a follower. From the wording it would seem it was introduced in F9 following Ubuntu.

PackageKit is not just for yum, it's for every package manager out there.

Also it seems the hibernation, suspend and overall power management features where not properly tested. That's a big improvement in F9.

I think the concussions are good, but the rest is far from good.
