A Week With Fedora: End Of The Line
So I’ve been working with Fedora for over a week now, and I have to say that it’s been fun. I haven’t hit any major issues that are deal breakers for me. I’ve fully personalised Fedora’s Gnome Shell desktop environment, and I’m really happy. However, I think it’s time to go back to Ubuntu,and here’s why…
Like I said, I’ve really enjoyed my time with Fedora, but after working with it for so long I’ve realised that it’s not technically Fedora that I’m enjoying, but rather Gnome Shell. I enjoying it a lot more than Unity, mainly because of the customisability of the environment. I’m starting to find that actually using Fedora is getting frustrating, but I think that’s mainly because of my lack of knowledge than anything else.
By far the worst thing I’ve found is installing applications in Fedora, for example I’ve just tried to install Virtualbox on my machine, in Ubuntu this us easily accomplished via the software centre, but in Fedora it seems to be a lot more complicated. I’ve always said that I don’t like complication, I like simplicity, I like my operating to system to just get out of my way and let me work. Because I know so much about Ubuntu, it allows me to do that.
So all in all, Fedora is a great, capable operating system, and I would highly recommend it to anyone. But for me, and my few years with Ubuntu beats it for me. Had it been the other way around, I really do think I would be saying the same thing about Ubuntu here.
What about you guys? Are there any Fedora users out there? Why not tell us what you think.
