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.

I am using Fedora 9 on my home box and I like it. The issue with Flash crashing in Firefox is a pain but I think it is more of an Adobe issue.

On my eeepc, I started with eeedora but I just couldn't get it to work right. I kept getting kernel panics. I installed eeebuntu and it worked very well with the eee. It was pretty wild to see compiz running more smoothly than my home box. The only Ubuntu issue I ran into was the failure of USB flash drives from being recognized. The Ubuntu forum had a fix for it by commenting out the CDROM in fstab. I get the feeling that there is more support for Ubuntu on the eeepc. The Fedora version was less polished and not as much forum help. It makes me wonder how much longer Fedora 9 will stay on my home box.
