Can Fedora be the new Ubuntu?

Filed under
Linux

I know it sounds crazy. Fedora is more a test bed for the enterprise-grade RHEL. Fedora is cutting edge software that evokes images of users fixing more issues than enjoying user-friendly software. Fedora is for those who already know, Ubuntu is for those that do not. Right? Wrong. Those assumptions are wrong on numerous accounts…especially since the release of Fedora 13.

I haven’t spent too much time covering Fedora Linux. In fact, if you search Techrepublic you will find my last article around the year 2007. That may as well be 1957 in computer years. Why is that? Well, somewhere around Fedora 9 the distribution was just too broken to bother with. I realized I need to concentrate my efforts on distributions that wouldn’t send the users packing their bags back to Windows. So I left my Fedora hanging on the door and found the communal hugs of Ubuntu. It felt right. It was a good choice.

But now - things are starting to change.




Say it ain't so

Fedora the new Unoobtu - say it ain't so.

Fedora has technical people that respond in their forum and actually solve problems, instead of Unoobtu's fantasy badminton team of back patting and fanboy drooling.

But just in case it starts leaning that way, I'm ready...

Get ready for the Fedorka™ comments if and when it's needed.
