Dropping Debian etch in favor of Fedora

Filed under

I will soon move from my beloved Debian etch (or testing) to the upcoming Fedora Core 5.

How did I come to take such a decision?

To me, Debian has advantages such as its package and system management features; I'm addicted to apt-get and DebConf. Also, I can enjoy through Debian the greatest variety of Debian packages, and, until recently, Debian etch also meant quality.

To set the things straight, I shall describe briefly the hardware my system runs on and the former distros I tried.

Aside of this particular drawback, the hardware is running smoothly. 2 years ago however, not every distribution out there was compatible with my laptop.
