    Red face Fedora 38 is Great!

    Loaded Fedora 38 Workstation and all is well. A fresh install replacing 37. Gnome, the default for Workstation, is smooth and functions as expected.

    With this install, I'm purposefully keeping it simple. Pulling packages (RPM's) from Fedora repos.
    I added one photo application, Shot Well. Otherwise, I am using the default applications plus Google Chrome (RPM) and the suite of applications built into Chrome.

    No Flathub or Flatpaks. Testing how the (mostly) vanilla install meets my needs.

    Very smooth. Nice polish. Great GNU/Linux distro

    Speaking of other OSes, I'm really enjoying EndeavourOS + xfce. I haven't tried Fedora for many years, maybe I should check it out.

    My wife just loves it as well, I would recommend this to a newer Linux user.

    Re: Fedora 38 is Great!

    I would not install Fedora if you paid me to! I am joking!

    It is my understanding that Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) is based on the principle of giving the user choice. I cannot understand why so many Linux users take sides and start disputes.

    At the moment the only reason I would have for installing Fedora is curiosity. I am curious about Fedora Silverblue. I do like the idea of an immutable OS. Canonical actually did develop an immutable OS some years ago. It was called Ubuntu Personal. And it worked. But development was discontinued. The desktop version anyway. Ubuntu core is an immutable OS but lacking a desktop.

    I have no doubt that Fedora isn't a good Linux distro although I don't need bleeding edge.

    I use old computers and Ubuntu and Ubuntu flavors work well for what I use a computer for.

    I don't mind Snaps and Snaps are improving leastwise the Snaps I use work well on my old computers.


    My 2 cents worth.

    Re: Fedora 38 is Great!

    I tried Fedora on and off but something or other always seem to be broken and the support cycle is short, their software repos also seems to have less than Ubuntu's. I remember having a hard time to try to hunt down an old copy of gcc to compile some software (without having to compile gcc first) it was readily available in Ubuntu . If I want bleeding edge I would use arch, strangely it is more stable and doesn't need to reinstall in 9 months (or less). Of course AUR has all kinds of cool stuffs if you don't mind occasional breakage (which usually doesn't affect the main system) My two cents

    Tried Kubuntu, both LTS and Lunar. Both had trouble with the panel. Installed Fedora 38 KDE and it so far is perfect. Works every time without issue.

    Each Fedora release is supported for at least 12 months. With the release of Fedora 38, within a month Fedora 36 will no longer be supported. Fedora 37 is still supported. If the release is delayed, then even longer support with the older version. Though Fedora is fairly close with a 6 month cycle of release.

    In the past I have upgraded ever other release, so a year of one supported Fedora version. My basic (almost vanilla) install of Fedora Workstation have been stable. So I can't resist loading the latest release and do upgrade roughly every 6 months

    @grahammechanical I like working in the two different distros of Debian and Fedora. With Debian, a solid distro you set up and have for awhile - nice daily driver And Fedora is fun to work in and explore
