Fedora vs. Ubuntu: Is Either Better?

,----[ Quote ]
| The truth is, given the mature state of the 
| free desktop and each distro's undoubted wish 
| to match the features of rivals, it is 
| becoming increasingly harder to find features 
| that make one stand out from the other. There 
| are still significant differences in desktops. 
| But when distributions use the same desktop, 
| the way that Fedora and Ubuntu do, then the 
| differences are likely to be unnoticeable to 
| three out of four users. These days, you are 
| even unlikely to find any differences in speed 
| or stability unless you have some unusual 
| hardware configuration.
| That may be an unsatisfying answer to those 
| who like to pick a side and defend it. But 
| look at it this way: the lack of a clear 
| victor shows the general sophistication of 
| free software today. Now, in most cases, you 
| don't have to choose between major 
| distributions -- no matter what your choice, 
| it is likely to be a reasonable. 



Ubuntu User on Fedora 12: Using It and Liking It

,----[ Quote ]
| I find Fedora 12 fast and responsive. It
| loads quickly and after it is set up it
| seems stable. I can find most of the
| applications that I use and there are many
| online resources to assist me with setting
| up my system. So far, I have installed KDE 4
| and GNOME and like the look and feel of
| both. The community has been helpful but
| quite a bit smaller than what I am used to.
| I expect to write more about Fedora in the
| future.


Linux Desktop Comparison: Red Hat, Novell, Ubuntu, Fedora

,----[ Quote ]
| While you can still download many free
| versions of Linux online, for convenience
| sake, several vendors offer user-friendly
| versions and charge a fee for support. Red Hat
| and Novell are the primary desktop Linux
| vendors, accounting for nearly 95 percent of
| the operating system revenue in 2008,
| according to IDC. Further, these two companies
| claimed 90 percent of worldwide Linux
| subscribers during 2008.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
