Garbage, absolute garbage.


So once again I've tried Fedora and once again I am disappoint. Sometimes Gnome boots, sometimes it doesn't. Fantastic.

14,15,16,17,18 (Ugh),19,skipped 20,21 ... Every single one of them had a problem.

Terrible distro.

Still full of disappoint. Still like the logo.

Perfection should not be expected with a testing system.
Many people are happy using it.
If you are continuously disappointed, why do you keep trying it?

There's no threads of yours trying to diagnose things so there's no way to form an opinion if this is a problem with Fedora, GNOME or anything you did (or didn't) do.

Are you going to tell us the actual problem (other than the fact that Gnome doesn't always boot)? Maybe someone has a permanent solution.

Or do we mark this down as amateur trolling?

It's a general forum. There is a reason I did not post this in the Fedora forum.

And that my friends. Is what you can expect as the "year of the Linux desktop" comes into being and Linux becomes mainstream.

Aint mainstream fun?

It's probably your graphics card. Or Gnome doesn't like your hardware (which happens). But if you want to try something different, grab the netinst ISO and install the Basic Desktop option. This will give you a handful of window managers to try and you can install more with yum. I'm a fan of the XFCE spin.

Whoa - I at least lasted till RH9 then got pissed off.
Needed to do some testing, so I actually got back into it around F15. Still using Fedora, but the devs really need to pull their heads in - they make some really stupid decisions.
Not that they're going to listen to mere users.

When I tried Fedora a few years ago, it worked perfectly well for me, except for printing. I was one of many people having problems setting up printers at that time. Apparently there was a bug. I do not know how long it took for the bug to be fixed, because I stopped the experiment before then. Even though it is Red Hat's testing system, it seemed to be pretty good. Of course, that was before Gnome 3 and systemd.
