I did not't pay a penny for Fedora 7 the newest of the Fedora
versions, but had I paid money for it I would demand a refund. Here are
the specific reasons I have found. I never got just the basic things
Fedora Core 4: use Desktop-System Settings-Printer
Fedora 7: I could not find anyway to set up the printer.
Fedora Core 4: Thunerbird loaded easy from their web page
Fedora 7: Found a library file was missing. Yum that and it ran. But
I was unable to bring my old setup to Fedora 7 like I did to other Linux
versions. With the old data files thunderbird will not run at all.
Fedora Core 1 through 4 it worked fine.
3. Web access:
Fedora Core 4: Firefox latest version works but has minor bugs.
Fedora 7: Firefox is VERY slow to come up and it is quite odd.
Fedora Core 4: Easy to get an editor and write
Fedora 7: SAB.
Reading this list I have learned the kernel shipped with Fedora 7 is
corrupt. That explains some of the odd effects that I see. It appears
that just like the DOS packages of long ago you NEVER want a simple
number. DOS 4.0 was buggy and bad. DOS 4.1 was a keeper. I'm going to
wait for Fedora 7.1 to arrive. And I volunteer to write some part of the
documentation, provided I can make that part work :-)
