Fedora 9: Leading edge or bleeding edge?

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 85.138.66.5] on May 26, 2008 09:10 AM
Audacity benchmark tell me F9-services-optimized goes around 82: With Fedora 8/ Ubuntu Feisty I couldnt passs 70 and I have to say that F9 doesnt have nv drivers (and as im using a W monitor, xorg need to put RES at 1400 vs 1280 of F8 with nv (so lots more CPU))
Conclusion - Everything works VERY fast. (Firefox, open office, flash, etc)
No problems with my 7years old and only P4 computer. Every times came a new F Distro, my PC works faster. No need to buy a new one.

2 things missing:
login window - CRAP - gnome is doing
nv drivers - no sure theyll be release soon - so you may need glasses O-O

And the real CRAP
synaptic with deborphan is better. So better that I can't compare. Instead of that upstart-copy-with-default-settings I would copy synaptic. So if youre new to F, here goes my advise: every package deleted, the other programs needed stay in HD. So choose what You want with time or youll sys will be like Windows.dll; if you do that youll see Fedora is the best.
