    that looks great, but i am not going back to fedora unless they get rid of SeLinux. i know i can turn it off, but even then it screws with my programs.

    I have never liked Fedora since Fedora 9, I played with 12 and I have to say I am not liking it at all.

    Root is disabled in GUI by default, The layout, and a somewhat hindered Ethernet setting that always seems to be needed to be fixed by:

    echo 0> /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_window_scaling

    or

    echo "4096 87380 103744" >/proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_rmem
    echo "4096 16384 103744" >/proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_wmem

    With my experience with Fedora I never really liked it. In Linux administration class it seemed to be one of the least stable OS's.

    Yeah, it's starting to get more and more like Ubuntu. I hate it when proper root is disabled. Used to love it, but not so much anymore.

    hmm, sorry it doesnt even recognize my very generic wifi card. Ubuntu immediately recognizes Wifi cards, but Fedora Still doesnt. Furthermore, I get no sound and my touch pad doesnt work properly. back to Ubuntu for me I guess...

    i personally would not install fedora on a laptop. it really is a server OS built for people who want to test run apps and settings for red hat linux. also, i wouldnt use it as a gui because ubuntu is far superior on that front.

    really, get familiar with the command line and fedora is great, although if it really comes down to it if just run freebsd as a console os.

    I don't find Ubuntu superior on the gui front. But that's all a matter of taste. I hate the looks of Ubuntu.

    I always look forward to the next fedora release. Although I usually skip generations because I don't like to upgrade that often.

    Fedora is more cutting edge than Ubuntu. It includes newer versions of software whereas Ubuntu usually tends to stick with older, more compatible, versions. I also prefer yum to apt-get.

    While Fedora goes on my desktop. I put Ubuntu based Linux Mint on my Laptop and carry a flash drive that boots to linux mint for when I borrow laptops from the school.

    id go back to fedora if they get rid of selinux completely and by default have their firewall disabled.

    Fedora didnt recognise my Ethernet connection, my network is set up like this

    router to back up pc - Ethernet connection
    router to main pc -wireless connection via a wireless access point which is then connected via Ethernet to the main pc

    its a stupid set up because i have to use the wireless access point with the xbox 360 and the router is to far away for a wired connection

    ill try it on a USB stick but im not hopeful

    the newest ubuntu didnt recognise it either *sigh! i only tried it to copy files between 2 hard drives so i could fresh install windows lol
