Fedora 18: Graphical Installer Horror

Filed under
Linux

I am usually quick to write an article or something on the latest Ubuntu or Fedora release. But for Red Hat’s new Fedora 18 operating system, I thought I’d hold off a little. To be blunt, Fedora 18 is a horrible release. Let me explain the issues that I encountered with the latest update.

On occasion, you can generally get a fair idea of an operating systems potential from running the Live CD. Upon boot, F18 seemed fast enough and stable enough to prompt me to attempt a full installation. Appearance and aesthetics, it is not too different from it’s predecessor Fedora 17. In fact, one might even struggle to determine the difference between the two. Aesthetics aside, I was determined to find what was really making it all tick underneath.

Not having a demo mode to preview how the OS runs on your particular hardware can be a time-consuming setback. However, once you have Anarchy Linux up and running, it will give you a very pleasing computing experience. Much of what happens after installation depends on the desktop environment you selected. If you have a desktop preference or prefer one of the included window manager environments instead, you can forget about the sullied reputation that comes with Arch Linux distros. For many reasons, Anarchy Linux is a winning choice. Read more
