Unstable Fedora System


Hi, I recently installed apt and added Dag Wieers repositories to my sources.list file, and installed a few programs. Upon reboot, absolutly nothing will work. My SOT Office is one of them (which I find odd, it wasn't even installed using rpm).

I am really getting sick of having to tinker with this and that to have a good system that has some good software. Is there a distro that just works, even if I have to pay for it??? Maybe I should just stick with SUSE...although the problems with it are almost as bad...

Never mind actually. I'm formatting my system and I think I am just going to run Windows for the time being. I am seriously falling behind in school because I rely on my computer for school, so I need something that just works for me. I have spent more time with both SUSE and Fedora, among others trying to get them running the way I like, and there are always a few things that I just cannot get to work. When it is time for a new computer, I will just get a Mac, unless Linux has matured a bit.

I see alot more people complaining of Fedora unstableness.....I don't get it...I have never had a problem with it....Although I am using 2 year and older hardware.

It probably depends on the hardware. What I said was more in the heat of the moment, I was already behind on an assignment and Fedora broke....I know now that I am going to stick with SUSE as it has always worked the best for me....as well as Debian. But, for the next couple weeks at least I am just leaving Windows on until I am ahead of my class again and ready to get it all running the way I like. Lol, I would probably be the last person to actually think that Windows "just works" when compared to Linux.
