Fedora Core 5: A very personal review

Filed under
Linux

I have finally completed the migration of my laptop from Debian Etch to Fedora Core 5
.
I would like to write about it and my impressions after 5 days of using Fedora. Fedora Core comes in a set of 5 CD-Roms, but you can install it from the net.

Anaconda, the graphical installer, is a little bit less good-looking than the SuSE or Mandriva installers, but its even more effective.

I will not focus on the installation phase, but let me just say that nobody can fail its installation of Fedora Core 5. I chose to install both Gnome and KDE, and Fluxbox as the lightweight desktop environment.

I guess what you may want to know is how Fedora ran on my system:
