    Re: how does fedora 10 compare to ubuntu 8.10?

    I tried F10 a week ago. It was okay I guess. But packagekit/yum was very slow and buggy. Also I couldn't make subpixel font smoothing work which is a trivial task in every gnome distro I tried since 2001.

    I've found Ubuntu's/Mint's font smoothing to be unmatched. Best I've seen yet.

    Fonts in Ubuntu are awesome. Fedora, not quite as good, even with subpixel smoothing.

    No, it doesn't come with the drivers installed. Once you install the RPMFusion repo, they're trivial to add. Want it even easier? Go to http://dnmouse.org/autoten.html and install the autoten script to do it all for you.

    Fedora uses rpm`s wich are ugly,Ubuntu has strong deb`s.
    That's your opinion. I much prefer yum/rpm to apt/deb. To each their own, I guess. Statements without backup don't sound too convincing, though.

    Funny, I've heard much more criticism of Ubuntu's orange and brown theme than Fedora's theme. Again, a judgement call.

    Fedora has huge and out-of-date updates,Ubuntu has small fixes in very small times.This makes it strong.
    Completely untrue. As stated before, have you even used Fedora?!

    Ubuntu has a lot of appsin installation,Fedora has just gnome-based apps like OpenSolaris.
    Again, have you used Fedora? You can get apps for any desktop manager, from Fluxbox to KDE and more. Do some research before posting ignorant stuff like that.

    All said, Fedora and Ubuntu are pretty comparable in my opinion.

    Something tells me that you have NEVER used Fedora and are just posting to see your own words in print.
    Good luck with that....

    Come on now guys. Give the poor kid a break. Time moves on and experience will eventually overtake opinion. We hope.

    And as for you, Glenn ... I'm tellin' Bob on you! <....>

    Please tell me that you are joking.
    I'm just going to end it here, I don't want to flame.

    Back to the original topic, Fedora 10 is really, really nice. Actually it does feel faster than 8.10, for me of course.
    I really do like the theme, though. I don't mind the .RPM package system, I got used to it. Oh and of course, who can forget Plymouth?

    I've used Redhat 3.x, 4.x, 5.x and 6.x years ago, I remember the rpm-hell very well Things have improved a lot with yum, but I find apt-get much more flexible and nicer to use (Why does yum have to update information each time before I want to again install something ? Just plain annoying.). I prefer apt-get/dpkg so much more over rpm/yum.

    And concerning the repositories, as a new Fedora or CentOS user you still have to do some reading to find extra repositories for certain simple applications (Referring to Dag and other repositories).
    With Ubuntu a lot is already included with universe and multiverse.

    My impression is that Fedora (release) is from time to time more cutting edge than Ubuntu (release), take for example the ext4 support in the latest Fedora release.
