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.

What puts me solidly in the Fedora camp is the community's attitudes and goals in contrast to the massive Ubuntu hype machine.

That's funny that is exactly what puts me squarely in the Ubuntu camp. The community is large and full of enthusiastic albeit a little newbish community. They have an audience of new users and almost any issue you can think of will have been encountered and discussed in their forums. Meanwhile I have yet to here anything either in the forums or from Fedora about the issues installing the distro because of a 4 year old promise controller that worked rather well in Fedora 1-4 but now hasn't worked for the last 3 versions.
