Ubuntu 10.04 vs Fedora 13

Filed under
Linux
Ubuntu

Spring is a lovely time of year, when the flowers bloom, the birds sing and community Linux projects release the fruit of their winter labours. Specifically, the Fedora and Ubuntu projects come to the end of their six-month cycles. This year’s yield is a bumper crop, with Fedora 13 including a number of interesting technologies and improvements and Ubuntu putting on its finest polish for a Long Term Support (LTS) release.

On the surface, one might expect that there would be little to distinguish the projects, since they each comprise the same core components: the Linux kernel, GNU utilities, X.Org, Firefox, GNOME and so on. But the reality is that the raw materials alone do not a distribution make. The focus of Fedora and Ubuntu is drastically different and it shows through in many ways.
