as with any distro the main changes from version to version are additions to or drops in software packages and upgraded software. not really sure how else to answer.

i imagine you would be able to find recent changelogs for fedora, that would be the best answer.

It is best to follow the realese notes and what is different about Fedora Core XX notes. Its hard to sum up in a few statements but newest is usually best. I still consider myself new to Fedora but I have finally imersed myself in the OS and I like it. Its hard to not let it ruin your everyday tasks. Because it can be rather overwhelming at times.

Hi,
I have been using Fedora Core 5 fore more than 6 months and I like this OS. After the release of FC 6, there were some really bad reviews of this release. I would like to hear an opinion of people who have some experience with FC6 and with Fedora in general. I have FC6 installed, and I would be interested to find more about what I have got.
Thank you.

I agree that newer is better, but I thought the only differences were the built-in packages and maybe some small modifications. I see that FC6 has some pretty cool features compared to the FC2 I've been trying to use.

Thank you all for your feedback and help.

So far, I have discovered one little difference between FC6 and FC5. In FC6 sometimes when I try to check for the updates, the system throws an error dialog. Usually rebooting helps. Otherwise, everything is all right. I wish I could have more time learning Linux. It is extremely cool.
