Fedora Core 2: Making it work

Recently I concluded my review of Fedora Core 2(FC2) on with the words, “It’s an important step in the evolution of Linux … but I won’t be using it for production work anytime soon.” What a difference a month makes — I am now using FC2 for production work. Here’s how I got around the distro’s deficiencies.

Humor: Sun shows cartoon making fun of the Microsoft settlement
Inside Jack Episode I: The Sun-Microsoft Thing是Sun官方网站最新放出的flash动画,开始的音乐很爽(Nirvana rules!),然后开始围绕“How can Sun use the $2,000,000,000?”的问题调侃。里面有很多好玩的dd,例如上来Jack就说“My name is Jack, and I write code…”,令人想起工藤新一的“工藤新一…探偵さ!!”,开会时打游戏和睡觉的工程师,Balmore和McNealy对着说“Hi, I love you, man”的表情和语气,然后还有2 billion一个的“IBM consulting contract”。。。BTW,Jack的那件写着“No, I will not fix your computer”的t-shirt很讨人喜欢,其实这在ThinkGeek卖15-19美刀一件。

Fedora, SuSE And Mandrake Compared

gmuslera writes “This weekend 2 comparisions were made between latest Fedora, SuSE and Mandrake Linux distributions. The first one was done by FlexBeta and in general goes deep, done by people that seem to know Linux, and good around its 9 pages. The last one was done by The Washington Post (yahoo news link) and shows another view of those 3 distributions, from someone that seems to dislike Linux and don’t know enough about it. In what of those extremes are the average new user experience with those distributions?” Update: 07/06 01:01 GMT by T: Note that long-time Washington Post tech writer Rob Pegaroro doesn’t seem to dislike Linux — far from it; he’s just writing what he sees as truth.
