An Early Look at Fedora Core 2

The only problem with his review is that he doesn't mention the VAST AMOUNT of updates that
have come out since its initial release. I'm running it on an AMD Athlon and I really haven't
noticed much in the way of bugs even with the very first release... but then again, I prefer KDE
and haven't checked out any of the GNOME stuff.
So far, I've had three major updates... the first update had over 300 packages (and I don't even
have the devel stuff installed). I can't remember how many packages were in the second major
update but it was rather hugh too. I'm in the middle of the third update... but it looks like it is
going to be bigger than the first.
There is a large amount of active development... and I'm not having to wait for the next Test
release to be part of it. While there were a few minor problems with the initial Test 1 release, I
don't see how the author of this article can make a blanket statement that the quality of future
releases will suffer. I just don't buy it. I think the big difference here is that Fedora Core 2 has
so many changes... new GNOME, new KDE, new kernel, etc. From a KDE user's perspective, I am
very impressed with Test 1.
