Notes from the not-so-leading edge

I learned and needed to type
on my (non-rawhide) Fedora boxes for well over one year now.
The two main problems with Fedora Core are:
- There is little effort towards collaboration and overall quality control between various repositories, quite unlike Debian and Ubuntu
rpm is fragile and
yum needs resources beyond the wildest dreams of my PII 300MHz laptop.
However, I continue to use Fedora since in every other respect, it works better for me than Ubuntu (X stopped working on the Ubuntu partition on my wistful laptop after
dist-upgradeing to edgy.) Unfortunately, I have once had all instances of gnome-terminal terminate simultaneously with little provocation on FC6.
It's odd that I can be such a happy Fedora user!
