Thread: Switch to Fedora?

    Switch to Fedora?

    I was just wondering... is there really a reason to switch to Fedora (from Red Hat 9)? Is it just a matter of RH not being supported anymore, or is there something that actually makes the switch worth it?

    Re:Switch to Fedora?

    From what I take of this, it seems that Fedora is just going to be the new user base RH, while the RH title belongs to the coperate market. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

    Maybe I will just revert back to Slack... I am getting a little tired of RH anyway.

    Re:Switch to Fedora?

    Fedora is now redhat's general testing ground for their enterprise line, and where they test new features. In my opinion, it should stay fairly cutting edge, now that it is community based. I found it not to my liking, but Alastair will tell you different

    So in other words they just turned all their users into Beta testers.

    Good point Skynet... Sounds alot like MS, if you ask me. I still can't believe that Red Hat is charging that much for their Enterprise Solution. I just think that you better be good to command that kind of price...

    Re:Switch to Fedora?

    my fedora installation, though done right, was pretty craptacular. It didn't like dual monitors, didn't seems to be well optimized, and i honestly felt the frustration i felt in the old days when i used windows. Not that i won't try the next release of fedora, but i can say that the first was not impressive by any means.

    You are right on the nose SkyNet.

    I think when the project gets a bit more stable, it will really take off.

    hey, thats what debian testing is.....
    You can choose to run latest and greatest updates, but i have had no great problems with it

    I had no probs with my dual monitors, i did have to hack the config file a bit though.
    fedora core 2 should be cool. hopefully it will be a little more polished.

    Re:Switch to Fedora?

    So, the users will be beta testers and FIND the problems. Then the USERS (community) will fix the problems, and Red Hat will incorporate their fixes into the release and sell it? Just doesn't sound right....

    Re:Switch to Fedora?

    well, thats whats always happened.
    You find a bug and report it to bugzilla. someone at redhat usually takes ownership of the bug and tries to fix it. this still happens at the moment i think..
    I can't really see how this is different from mandrake or suse selling their distros made up of, uh, open source programs which the community has made and bug fixed... ??? ???
