A newbie's guide to Fedora 12

,----[ Quote ]
| Sometimes it's easy to forget that we all had 
| to start somewhere with Linux. When you're not 
| used to the way it works, or the kind of 
| concepts involved, Linux can seem like a 
| foreign language. If you're struggling with 
| free software, or if you know someone who needs 
| help making the switch to Linux, we hope this 
| feature will help.



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.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
