Fedora 19 Performance Review

Filed under
Linux

Fedora 19 ‘Schrödinger’s Cat’ got released few days ago, and since I have not reviewed Fedora on this blog (mainly because I did not have a lot of positive things to say about it), I decided to review it.

I will be sticking with the performance related aspects of the operating system, rather than describing what is new with the desktop and applications. However, if I feel fit, I will mention some of those features as well.

Also remember that, since Fedora has always had strong ties with the Gnome desktop, I am using the GnomeShell version (64-bit) for this review.

The $730 laptop is a bog standard piece of hardware but it contains only open source software. The OS, Debian, is completely open source and to avoid closed software the company has added an Atheros Wi-Fi dongle with open source drivers rather than use the built-in Wi-Fi chip. Read more
