Comparison of Kubuntu 8.10 (Intrepid Ibex) and Fedora 10

I am deciding to install linux on my machine, converting from Microsoft to Linux. Please guide me which way to go. Should i go for Kubuntu or Fedora. Are there hardware issues in either releases?

If this is your very first experience with linux, and you are limited only to these two distributions, I certainly would recommend Ubuntu over Fedora.

They each have their pro's and con's, but Ubuntu/Kubuntu most likely will require less "expertise" to get up and running, and Fedora is aimed mainly at geeks and those that like to tinker with their machines more than average.

The great thing about linux is that, if you don't like the distribution you're using, you can always change to another, free of charge

Just my thoughts; your mileage may vary.

Hope this helps.

Try them both. They both have a liveCD.


[My worthless opinion] Kubuntu is a bad implementation of KDE. [/My worthless Opinion]
