fedrora core 4?

Postby 1slipperyfish » Sat Jul 16, 2005 7:56 pm

i have been looking forward to getting fedora core 4 with this issue as most of the books on linux i have seen are for fedora, and i wanted to try it without the seven hour download :roll:
however it says at the back of this months mag that fedora is coming next month(probably) but as you reviewed it this month and said it was a load of rubbish, i was wondering what would be the point of giving us a crap distro(ark linux excepted) when we could have a good one instead :?
my real question is, is fedora as crap as you said?
nice work with kanotix though :D more distros like that would be welcome :D

Having read the review, and the subsequent comments posted on these boards, I am not sure that they are saying it is "crap", so much as that it is a disappointing release given what it could be and compared to the efforts of other distributors.

By all means give it a go 1sf (troll), we could all do with a laugh :lol:

Ditto :lol:

No it's not 1sf (troll) - just get the cd, stick it in the drive and give it a go for crying out loud. :P

At 4:10 pm, no I'm yawning because it's yet another distro. I'm suffering from distro fatigue, at least nelz provides us with some other disc content as well.

Yes LM is Linux Magazine, I assume the others are your more usual subscriptions :P

Yes, you can keep Mandriva if you install Fedora, if you search the forums you will find tips on how to manage multi-boot systems.

motub's excellent description of a Multiboot system where she runs three thousand distros on half a gig of spare time :lol::lol::lol:
