What problems do you have that can be traced to the distro as opposed to an
In my experience, there's never been a linux (or ANY) OS distro that 'just
works' (also depends on how you define 'works'). The Linux ones are getting
much better - the MEPIS/Debian distro is the best for multimedia app
integration that I've seen. Ubuntu/Kubuntu/Debian is the best for scientific
computation (AMD64), tho I haven't tried FC on that platform - longtime
appreciation for Debian systems. On a cluster tho, the RH-based ROCKS has
the advantage because of support/update/additions considerations.
I fought for years to get ANY linux distro/kernel combination to allow me to
sleep/hibernate my Thinkpad correctly - Kubuntu Breezy was the 1st to get it
right out of the box (tho the sound goes off post-sleep). I presume Dapper
will continue that trend.
Just my 2 phennigs.
