Fedora 19

Filed under
Linux

Two weeks ago I erased the harddisk on my Fedora machine and installed Fedora 19 from scratch. I was tempted to give Mageia a try instead, but as it’s my main machine which I also use for work I tried to minimize disruption by not trying out new stuff.

My work (bug management) can be described as constant switching between browser (Firefox) with some custom Greasemonkey scripts for triaging bug reports, email application (Evolution) with many filters sorting mail into folders and tagging it, IRC (xchat), text files (gedit) and some gnome-terminal windows. Hence that’s my main focus of interest.

All in all GNOME 3.8 is really fast (considering this laptop is more than five years old) and looks great even in its details.
