    Yay, just installed Fedora on my PC. I quite liked OpenSuse, but I left it to late to upgrade it and then I found I could not install new drivers. Fedora uses different software install commands to other flavours of Linux, which is a bit of a pain, but the instructions are all on the web.

    It will be interesting to see how Red Hat and Fedora change if the IBM accusation of Red Hat goes through. It could be good, with them putting lots more resources into the software development or they could shift focus more into monetising it rather than developing it. Certainly one to watch.

    I've stuck with Ubuntu through the ups and downs of the last few years, mainly due to it being the most supported on the software side. There are still some bits of software that are only guaranteed to work on certain distributions and Ubuntu seems to get the most love. Though there are stuff that only work on CentOS and I presume Red Hat too.

    For me the wide Linux thing is great but still not problem free and it still lacks the vast amount of software that runs under windows. It's changing slowly but has a long way to go.
