Fedora Core 4 is Out!
Red Hat has announced that Fedora Core 4 is out and on the mirrors. At the same time, CentOS 4.1 has been spotted on some mirrors as well. While I like Fedoraâ€¦ I really, REALLY like CentOS! I mainly work with web servers, and since I am â€œserver oriented,â€? I just prefer the less than cutting edge distro for stability. So, on my servers I will stick with CentOS. As far as Linux desktopsâ€¦ I like Linspire. Yeah, I know, it isnâ€™t â€œtruly free,â€? but it is cool. If you want a free, and similar-to-Linspire desktop, then go with free Debian Linux. It isnâ€™t as easy to install as Linspireâ€¦ in fact, NOTHING is easier to install as Linspireâ€¦ but you can set it upâ€¦ and once up, the â€œapt getâ€? update utility allows you to keep it current. In fact, Linspireâ€™s â€œCNRâ€? client/server update and software installation tool is built right on top of â€œapt get.â€? So, go forth and play!
