Fedora 19 Schrodinger's Cat Feature Review

Filed under
Linux

There's much to be said about going with a Distro which provides true innovation and leading edge technology. So much so that today I have chosen to review Red Hat supported Fedora 19, aka Schrodinger's Cat, currently in its beta testing cycle. I didn't waste time downloading it--this is my desktop on the Xfce spin.

Simple, elegant, intuitive. I've been running Fedora 18 for quite a while now and will tell you without equivocation that it has been quite stable and there isn't a single thing I can think of that I miss coming from the Debian derivative world. No, this Red Hat-sponsored Distro has everything but the kitchen sink. Yum running with FastestMirror and AxelGet technology flames through updates and software installs. APT has no particular advantage over yum. And all of the stability nonsense which spews forth from the Debian fiefdom simply doesn't hold water.

GNOME Shell vs. KDE Plasma Graphics Tests On Wayland vs. X.Org Server

A premium member this week had requested some benchmarks of openSUSE Tumbleweed when looking at the performance of KDE Plasma vs. GNOME Shell in some open-source graphics/gaming tests while also looking at the Wayland vs. X.Org Server performance. With KDE Plasma 5.12 that openSUSE Tumbleweed has picked up, there is much better Wayland session support compared to previous releases. While KDE developers aren't yet ready to declare their Wayland session the default, in my experience so far it's been working out very well but still routinely will find application crashes in Kate and the like when testing under the KWin's Wayland compositor.
