Ubuntu 11.04 vs Fedora 15
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 16, 2011
So I'm a long-time Windows user and I haven't really used Linux for my desktop (although I've used it for my personal server). I love Windows but I want to check out either Ubuntu or Fedora and see if I can live without it (After all, free is good)
I hear the main difference in discussion between Fedora 15 and Ubuntu 11.04 is the desktop renderer... Gnome 3 vs Unity. I've read some articles that discuss the differences between the two, but even still I don't really know which one is the best for me.
So for someone coming from Windows 7, can anyone explain which is the "best" choice and why? I prefer objective reasons over subjective, if possible. I'll list a couple of things I do/use in Windows so you can maybe compare which distribution is best suited for me:
Browser: Google Chrome (beta channel). I assume Chrome for Linux is exactly the same as windows in terms of functionality.For version control, I use SVN... and TortoiseSVN with it. There is no TortoiseSVN for L
Ubuntu vs Fedora vs OpenSUSE
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 2, 2010
I know it is a Ubuntu Forum. I also know that folks in this forum love Ubuntu. Though Ubuntu is the most popular, Fedora and OpenSUSE is still "second" populars out there. I am wondering what will be your opinion about these three distros? How do you compare these three distros? Such as; which one is more easier, more beautiful, more stable, what are the pros and cons etc?
I've not tested anything other than Ubuntu and Mint. So I really wondering how much Fedora and OpenSUSE differ from Ubuntu? That's why I wanted to know your opinions guys.
Fedora, Gentoo or Arch?

This may seem like a strange topic, but out of the three, which one gets your vote?
Enjoying Fedora 18
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 21, 2013
If there is interest in trying out F18, I offer a couple of tips
The Live image does not allow you to set host name at install, so you will need to use this command after install:
hostnamectl set-hostname newhost.newdomain --static
The Full DVD image or Network Install image allows you to set host name.
The new anaconda is set up as a hub and spoke approach for install, more info here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Anaconda/NewInstaller
After install, F18 is smooth and stable
Ubuntu VS Ubuntu Server VS Fedora VS Suse
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 2, 2009
Hello every one
I am setting up a webserver, I am paying a lot of money to host my website, it is only a personal website with some videos. I did some research but realized how sophisticated and hard setting up a server could be.
I am torn between Ubuntu, Suse and Fedora. I heard many good things about Ubuntu but not sure what is the difference between Ubuntu and Ubuntu Server.
I read online that Suse is not the best OS for running a server, and I am not familiar with Fedora.
For some reason I am with Ubuntu, but it is just my guts so I need a more accurate answer.
I am a bit confused, I really want to learn one of these OS but not sure were to start and not sure which one is better for my web server.
I appreciate any help
Thank in advance
Fedora VS Opensuse
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 22, 2011
I tried Gnome 3 yesterday and I really like it (except for no shutdown button, but there are tweaks for that) so I want to switch to a Gnome 3 distro. I am considering Fedora 16 and Opensuse 12.1. I kinda like Fedora (Systemd, no mono) but I heard it isn´t very user friendly. Is Opensuse more user friendly (in installing codecs etc.) and what are the differences between Yast and Yum?
CentOS, Fedora, or Ubuntu for server. Which is best?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 20, 2008
The title sums it up. And, posting this on an Ubuntu forum, I know beforehand that the answers might be a little biased.
But the gist of it is that I may soon need to set up and periodically administer a box that will be used for subversion, among other things. I've been using Ubuntu since Feisty on might desktop and have loved it overall. My first instinct is to go ahead and load Hardy LTS on the new server, but then again Fedora seems to be the go-to distro for servers.
I realize that Canonical is working hard to make Ubuntu a server household name in its own right with some already evident success, but I know Fedora supposedly has a history of being a strong server platform, and nearly every server I've seen in the past is usually running some form of Red Hat-inspired software.
Come to think of it, I had forgotten about CentOS. How does that stack up?
I haven't really administered a server of any kind before, so I'd appreciate honest assessments of each distr
Ubuntu vs Fedora: same font settings yet different look
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 26, 2009
I have two systems running side by side: Ubuntu 9.04 and Fedora 10. Both with GNOME, both out of the box with no customizations, same monitor, same video card.
I have set both to 96dpi resolution, size 10 font, and made sure all the other font settings were the same. Yet, for some unknown reason, Fedora's GUI fonts look so much smaller (which is what I want).
How come Ubuntu's settings don't match? I have tried changing the font size down to 8 or 9, but still can't match it. What gives?
Ubuntu Vs. CentOS/Fedora differences in command line
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 21, 2010
I am planning to have two linux home severs. One “always on” Ubuntu server with SAMBA, FTP, etc and another one CentOS/Fedora that boots up once a day, backups my Ubuntu server and shuts down. Both will be headless.
I have the Ubuntu Server up and running. Before I setup the CentOS/Fedora backup server, I would like to know:
1) how different CentOS/Fedora is from Ubuntu in terms of managing the server from command line.
2) Are the commands very different. I am willing learn a bit but is the difference so huge that it will take days for me to setup up the backup server?
3) Are the directory structures/files very different? For example, in Ubuntu I know where sources.list (/etc/apt/sources.list) is it the same in CentOS/Fedora or is it the same for most part?
I know Ubuntu uses deb and CentOS/Fedora uses rpm. Other than this what else might be different. I have no experience on a rpm based linux. I am fine managing my ubuntu server from command line. I can easily setup
