[News] Early Glimpse at Fedora 11, Comparison to Ubuntu

Hash: SHA1

Fedora 11 Alpha Screen Shots


Ubuntu Vs. Fedora Artwork

,----[ Quote ]
| I’ve had this discussion a couple of times with some friends about which 
| looks better: Ubuntu or Fedora. So, I decided to take a poll from my readers, 
| and see what you think. Which vendor does a better job at artwork? I’ve 
| provided screenshots of the default wallpaper for each release on both 
| distributions. Now, you may be asking, “Why not [insert your favorite distro 
| here]?” Frankly, because if I were to meet everyone’s needs in that regard, 
| this would be a very large post, and it wouldn’t change your biased mind 
| anyway. Also, the discussion my friends and I have had in the past were 
| Ubuntu vs. Fedora, not Ubuntu vs. Fedora vs. Arch vs. Mandriva vs. Debian vs. 
| etc., etc., etc.         



A Penguin Deathmatch? Fedora 10 vs. Ubuntu 8.10

,----[ Quote ]
| I’ve talked about a lot of pros for Fedora. What Ubuntu has going for it is
| that it is a bit simpler to get installed and working for a basic setup on
| common hardware and getting common software packages installed is much
| easier. If you know what you are doing (aka you are a geek seeking fun and
| entertainment), Fedora is more efficient, can be hacked around with a bit
| more, and in my opinion is a better distro, but not by very much.
| Above all - you can’t really go wrong with either one of these fine software
| systems. They are easily better than MS Vista…I can’t comment on what Apple
| and BSD has to offer yet. Now I’m onto getting Eclipse 3.4, Seam, MySQL, and
| JBoss AS/Portal installed on my shiny new Fedora laptop. That should provide
| hours of geeky fun”.


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.


Short review: Fedora 10 and Ubuntu 8.10

,----[ Quote ]
| Both distributions are very solid. Ubuntu still has the better package
| managment, and a bigger selection of packages. This has only been possible
| due to Debian, which is the base of Ubuntu. I tried to write this blog post
| not as an Ubuntu member. I always liked Red Hat and Fedora, and one of my
| first Linux distributions was Red Hat 9.


Fedora Core 10 might make me a believer again

| To all the developers at Fedora and Red Hat, I tip my, well, hat to you. You
| have made me a believer again.


Screencast: How to Build a Fedora 10 Remix

,----[ Quote ]
| I made a two-part screencast on how to build a Fedora Linux remix. The first
| video has some slides at the beginning that explains the process and then
| walks through it with a live demo. The second video boots the LiveDVD that
| was created, shows an "Install to Hard Drive" and then shows some of the
| features of the remix.


Fedora 10 Comes Out With Five More Spins

| Fedora 10 was officially released a few days ago, but the Fedora SIG (Special
| Interest Group) has this weekend announced the availability of a few
| application-specific spins for Cambridge. Well, seven different spins to be
| exact.


Linux & Open Source Slideshow: eWEEK Labs Walk-Through: Upgrading to Fedora 10

,----[ Quote ]
| eWEEK Labs has been testing Fedora 10, the latest version of the
| community-supported Linux-based operating system that serves as a technology
| proving ground for future Red Hat software products. Here is a rundown on
| upgrading from Fedora 9 to the current version using the distribution's handy
| preupgrade tool.


Installing Fedora 10

,----[ Quote ]
| Fedora 10, also known as Cambridge, was released on November 25th, 2008, and
| it brings GNOME 2.24 and KDE 4.1, faster boot experience with Plymouth,
| better printing, better webcam support, improved wireless network connection
| sharing, better software maintenance and update (powered by PackageKit and
| RPM 4.6), and virtualization storage. Plus, it adds a new security tool for
| IDS (Intrusion Detection System) called SecTool.


The ups and downs of Fedora 10

,----[ Quote ]
| Kudos for the quick bootup with Plymouth. Resizing exist
| partitions/filesystem on install is a great idea. Just carry it to non-Linux
| parts/systems ... Thanks for finally including Thunderbird on the install
| media. Should have been done in Redhat 9!


Big Story: Fedora 10 Review

,----[ Quote ]
| This episode of Fedora 10 features information about the new Fedora 10
| release, some new features developed by the Fedora project, as well as a
| final commentary on their new theme.


Fedora 10 Review

,----[ Quote ]
| Fedora is really aggressive about keeping up with bug fixes and security
| updates over the lifecycle of their products. With Fedora 9, they updated
| (and will continue to update) KDE every time the KDE folks did. As a result,
| the KDE that ships with Fedora 10 is very similar to the KDE that you have on
| a fully updated Fedora 9 system. This is a good thing. After KDE came out
| with the 4.1.x series I switched back to KDE and have been fairly happy ever
| since. That isn't to say that all KDE users are happy with KDE 4 but I find
| it to be quite usable now.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
