Fedora Stability


I am a current Fedora user and would like to know if anyone has used fedora and Arch and can compare the 2 together. Is Fedora more Stable then Arch or is it the other way around for you guys? Thanks.

Hi:

Almost always first-hand experience is invariably the best way to compare distributions.

Once I had hands on with Debian I kicked Ubuntu to the curb-

I have found that Fedora is indeed stable and I have not had any problems.
I have never given Arch a go however; a little re-search may give you just what your looking for.

Thanks Ztcoracat, I also think Fedora is stable. However it does crash from time to time (more often on notebooks). I have never tried debian because I was so used to yum and red hat distros.

Probably heating or if not hardware compatibility.

I know it's not good to assume anything but I'm thinking that notebooks do not have a small fan like our traditional desktop's and laptops-

Anyway if I run into any Arch Linux users with experience I'll post back, otherwise wish you well in your endeavor.
