Ubuntu vs. Fedora: The Latest Versions Square Off

,----[ Quote ]
| Ubuntu regularly claims to be the most 
| popular Linux distribution. But, if so, 
| Fedora is a competitive second. Both have 
| thriving communities and are a major 
| source of free and open source software 
| innovation.
| Regularly, you can read on mailing lists 
| of users having grown discontented with 
| one and deciding to migrate to the other. 
| In many users' minds, each is an 
| alternative to the other. 
| [...]
| Both Fedora and Ubuntu are GNOME-centered 
| distributions, with KDE, Xfce, and other 
| desktops as alternatives. Fedora has 
| included fresh art for each new release 
| for several years now, so its wallpaper 
| compares favorably with Ubuntu's much-
| discussed new color-coded scheme. 


The five best things coming in Fedora 13 Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| When Fedora 13, Goddard, is released on 
| May 25, it's not going to be your usual 
| Fedora Linux release. In the past, Fedora 
| has been seen as a great Linux 
| distribution for Linux experts. Paul W. 
| Frields, the Fedora Project leader, told 
| me though that this release is more new-
| user-friendly and that is no longer just 
| for experienced Linux users. Based on my 
| early look at this Red Hat community Linux 
| distribution, I agree.
| You will be able to see it for yourself 
| soon. After several delays, Frields has no 
| doubt that this time, the Fedora final 
| will be available for download soon. 
| Frields explained to me that the delays 
| were because Fedora has adopted much more 
| "detailed and fleshed-out release 
| criteria. In the past, we would release 
| releases when it felt right. Now, we have 
| criteria that make the process both more 
| transparent to the community and provide 
| strong release guidelines."

The State of Fedora: We're Not Just for Fanboys

,----[ Quote ]
| With over 20 million installations, Fedora is
| among the most world's popular Linux
| distributions. While that kind of success has
| been due to a rapid base of supporters, the
| distro originally launched by Red Hat as a
| community Linux project is having to bridge the
| divide between targeting a mass audience and
| keeping hardcore enthusiasts in the fold.
