1 Perfect Match
But i like 98se,so.........
This is cool I took the test what the heck
Perfect match (100%) with Ubuntu and derivatives (Linux Mint and Kubuntu), OpenSuSE and Mandriva - the distributions for noobs and 90% match with Fedora. Still, a long compatibility list.
haha nice find.. Perfect matches Mandy,Fedora, Kubuntu,Open Suse
95% Debian,Linux Mint, Ubuntu..
Spot on because I use Mandriva all the time and 2009.1 spring is going to rock
Same as IvanV - this seems to be the set you get if you are reasonable on the tech side but say no Linux experience.
I got mandriva, then ubuntu, then kubuntu, then mint, then OpenSuSE. Mint is new to me. Currently use kubuntu when I'm not in windows.
Kind of off topic, but I've just installed Fedora 11 x64 from a live CD and it was such a breeze! Apart from being simple (and a basic setup had been simple for awhile on any distribution I'd come across), the installation ran from within the booted OS, so I'd have been able to use Firefox to look for help had I needed it. Nice!
Actually glad you posted Ivan I saw Fedora 11 on a news thread and was thinking of trying it out myself.
that's what i got at the end on a single page..... is that normal?
well i got the same as judas!, so i'm still sticking to ubuntu (with all the trouble i had to install it )
Well, as much as a newbie can say, it's fine. The system seems snappy and it displayed no "unusual" behaviour (no ext4 induced data loss yet ).
The only thing I could complain abut is that the versions of Java and/or Netbeans that I was served through Package Kit performed awfully (it was so slow that even navigating menus was difficult and updating the system and the application was of no help). The CPU wasn't anywhere near 100% and swap file was almost not used at all, so I've got no idea what the issue was, but downloading Netbeans and Java JDK directly from Sun gave me much better performance (though the IDE is still a bit laggy compared to how it behaves on Windows on this same machine, I've got no idea if it's normal?!).
Mandriva, which is pretty much the one I use and like the best.
I donno..... looks like you shouldn't use fedora
Not sure I have played with Ubuntu and Mandriva had good luck with both of them Fedora I haven't tried out yet. Thanks for the feedback
I've currently got on my machines Debian 5 (Lenny), Ubuntu Server 9.04 (Jaunty Jackalope) + Ubuntu Desktop 9.04 32 bit for forwarding, Ubuntu Netbook Remixed 9.04 on my netbook, Mandriva 2009 Spring x64, and a bunch of different live CDs of different distr
I got several with 100%
opensussee (or something)
one more than I don't remember
and 90% a mint flavour.
If it wasn't for the games, I would install one, but as it is now, no reason to.
Just fell in love with fedora 11
Cool and care to expand
Always a good reason - unleash the inner geek man ! always good to actually experiment and learn new operating systems, right? I think many windows users are just far too lazy tbh. baffles me.
Always fun to experiment and still wanting to try OSX out here myself. Still shopping for a laptop the Macbook is looking like a possibility if I can afford it.
On Fedora 11 I might just install it this weekend on my AMD system to play with it
