a bit of a rude question on these forums, sorry.

all i want to do is watch flash videos full screen, but the default install on my intel graphics card is too sluggish and the suggestions in the sticky guide on this forum caused problems for me. i understand fedora tries to be up to date...would simply installing Fedora 11 provide me with enough video power to watch flash videos?

thanks y'all.

As far as I know, Fedora has Live-CDs available too. You should try one (although you only use the full potential of a distribution when it's installed on the hard-disk).

Impossible to answer without knowing which graphics card you have :) so I say, why not burn a Fedora live CD and test it for yourself?

My computer has Intel graphics (910gl) and both Ubuntu and Fedora work very well; I can't tell a difference with my naked eye.
