    Change of plans

    I've decided to give Unity a fairer chance and stick with Ubuntu until November this year before switching to Fedora.

    My motives behind this (GNOME 3's somewhat rocky start and lack of OOTB USB 3 support) are explained there. I'll be upgrading to Natty over the weekend and use that until I decide GNOME 3 has matured enough, then replace Ubuntu with Fedora.
    Use what works out best for you, whether it be Windows, Mac OS X or Linux. It isn't rocket science.

    Ubuntu Development Release

    Re: Change of plans

    Maybe you should also consider the fact that by then, Ubuntu would have supremely matured too.

    As I mentioned elsewhere, this happens every release. Everybody, in the first two weeks (including me for Karmic) whines about how Ubuntu was the greatest release ever, and how Ubuntu + 1 has ruined all good things on Earth.

    And yet, after two months, Ubuntu + 1 is hailed yet again as the greatest release ever. One may verify this for themselves, from the forum history.

    It always takes some time to iron out bugs - considering the short development cycle, I thinks the devs do a magnificent job.

    And before you ditch an apt/deb-based system for a yum/rpm one, I suggest a VM, or a dual boot in the meantime. You might not like it. I never did, and I guess I never will.

    Also, with Ubuntu, you can still install Gnome3 you know. You won't, on the other hand, be able to install Unity easily in Fedora.
