Not officially, no, but having an open-source-community OS might be even better, in the long run. I think that was what frandalla was getting at in his post (tho I've been wrong before). I'm certainly looking forward to Fedora Core release 2...

I think Fedora is looking good so far! It has a lot of potential and I think will become an industry standard Like it's big brother....

I'm glad to find this forum. There are a lots helpful info here, such as the solution to speed up the slow Fedora up2date (via mirror site in sources file).

By the way, I just upgraded to Fedora Core 1 from Red Hat 9. It was a very smooth upgrade. So far, I love Fedora very much and I am looking forward to Core 2.

Cheers

Yes it's true there is no end user support. You can't go to the store and buy a boxed copy of Fedora. No support directly from RH to answer your Fedora questions on the phone or by email. No support directly from RH to help you install Fedora. The end user public can't go directly to RH for questions or answers. The community will have to take care of this type of support.

There is support from Red Hat in the development of Fedora. Fedora is a trademark name owned by Red Hat. Red Hat has assigned employees to work on the leadership team involved in the creation and updating of future Fedora releases. RH is supporting code improvements to Fedora with the help of their own employees. RH has a say in what does or doesn't go into a Fedora release. RH also plans on using improvements in Fedora on future releases of RH products. RH is supporting this Fedora site.


“Fedora Core is intended to be a logical upgrade path for previous users of Red Hat Linux whose needs are consistent with the objectives of the Fedora Project.” (From What is The Fedora Project?)

I gotta agree with buzzbiker. I tried so many times to install RH9 that I nearly frizzbied the CD's out the windows (whoops freudien slip ). It would install but as soon as "first time booting" or whatever it was flashed past it wouldn't beable to detect my screen or the correct resolution and I'd have to do a ctrl+alt+backspace and try and fix things.

Fedora on the other hand. Detected everything. Ran first boot and hasn't given me a moments trouble.

By the way buzzbiker....I used this:

to install all my multimedia stuff.

Thanks again my friend and take care

I have installed RH9 on multiple computers, including laptops, and also installed Fedora on several desktops...I found no problems with either, other than have a dicey problem with a cisco aironet card in RHP...still, I also have to agree that this last install of Fedora I just did has convinced me it is the way to go, so I will be working on putting it on my Dell Inspiron in the coming week...

I have to say that I like using Fedora and I'd give it a thumbs up. There is, as was mentioned already, community support and development. Besides this excellent forum a linux Google search will bring up a number of fedora related sites such as http://fedoranews.org/

Very best,
Nick

this is very true! I had RH 7.2, and it was a pain to get hardware to work. Fedora did everything for me, and even detects new hardware like mouse, usb hubs ect. I have been very happy with the instal of fedora, YUM makes it very easy to load programs. If I could only figure out how to instal flash, QT, win media, real player, shockwave, java plugins

I have to admit, any OS with the word "Core" in it, has to make you just a little bit leery!

That said, I've loaded Fedora on two boxes (one at home, one at work). I'm having probs with the NICs on both, but different problems. I'm not frustrated enough to post a call for help yet, but we'll see what happens.

Support Fedora Cora (all linux)

You can get great support from here or like I did, I bought the books with the disk included. Support both ways $$. I own 5 or 6 books on Windows also, they are now being used to level out a table...
