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.

Ok, i was mistaken a bit, a lot of the common features that we take for granted originated / were developed by the RH team.

Debian has such a slow update and release cycle Shuttleworth did good by making Ubuntu, if it was up to the Debian team "Bleeding Edge" would be a lost cause.

I mean, come on, Of all of the distros between Fedora biased ones and Ubuntu, I have more problems with Ubuntu than what I do with Fedora.

Now, I don't expect every one else's to do line mine, as the saying goes, mileage can vary, but, in and to my experience, RH/Fedora has always had the better distro.

Ubuntu is just way to "this is for Noobs" like for any linux user to ever take it serious, it is like Toddler Linux. Use it for a while, learn about it, then move on to a real, serious linux.

You know, one where building your own Kernel or such is not answered by on the boards "Why do you want to do that?"

So yeah, Ubuntu is great for people just out of Mac / Windows, and they want to head in to the shallow end of the pool, but for serious power users that LIKE bleeding Edge and Top of the Line, then Fedora is for you.

And I understand wanting stable system, but as i have said, I have NEVER had a fedora system go bad on me, was where i cant even count that high on how many timer an Ubuntu one has done such. I just like getting deep and dirty in the configs and tools of the system, and it is fun. However, doing so with Ubuntu is kinda frowned upon.
