[News] New Review of Fedora 10, Comparison to Ubuntu

Hash: SHA1

Review: Fedora 10

,----[ Quote ]
| If you are an experienced Linux user, F10 is well worth spending some time 
| with just for its sheer rounded-out quality; new users, once they get their 
| heads around that multimedia issue, might also find a lot to admire in this 
| excellent release.   


Multimedia Support in Fedora 10


Fedora 10 out - is it the best alternative to Ubuntu?

,----[ Quote ]
| Fedora also boasts "support for more hardware than any other operating 
| system." But wait…isn’t most hardware optimized to run Windows? Anyway, 
| judging from the tweaks and Red Hat’s commitment to the project, Fedora 10 
| could very well be a panacea to cure the Ubuntu weary and set another new 
| benchmark for other distros to follow. If you’re already using Fedora 9, 
| there is little justification for you not to upgrade.     



Fedora 10 vs. Ubuntu 8.10 Benchmarks

,----[ Quote ]
| In past distribution comparisons at Phoronix, the performance differences
| have been larger than what we experienced with Fedora 10 and Ubuntu 8.10.
| Both the x86 and x86_64 editions had performed nearly identical. In fact, the
| results are so close that it's hard to call a winner in any of the
| benchmarks. There's a few slight deviations in tests like the timed Gzip
| compression and BYTE Unix Benchmark, but nothing conclusive, at least with
| the hardware configuration we had used and the real-world tests conducted.


Red Hat Fedora Claims It's the Leader in Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| Red Hat's Fedora community Linux distribution has now tallied its user base,
| and it's a number that on the surface would make it the largest installed
| base of any Linux distribution, with at least 9.5 million users and possibly
| as many as 10.5 million.


First look: latest Fedora and Ubuntu betas really shine

,----[ Quote ]
| The developers behind the increasingly popular Ubuntu and Fedora Linux
| distributions announced the availability of new beta releases last week.
| These betas, which offer users an opportunity to get an early look at the
| functionality that will be included in the next major versions, are already
| highly polished and showcase the growing maturity of the desktop Linux
| software ecosystem.



23,000 Linux PCs forge education revolution in Philippines

,----[ Quote ]
| Providing high school students with PCs is seen as a first step to preparing
| them for a technology-literate future, but in the Philippines many schools
| cannot afford to provide computing facilities so after a successful
| deployment of 13,000 Fedora Linux systems from a government grant, plans are
| underway to roll out another 10,000 based on Ubuntu.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
