Goodbye Fedora, welcome back Debian, Part 1

(Other stories by Steve Rosenberg)

"I really did like Fedora 13. I liked it enough to solve more than a handful of problems. I liked it enough to use a proprietary graphics driver for the first time (didn't like that; not only was it outside the package-management system and hard to update, it didn't perform so well either).

"I love the Fedora community, the openness that's everywhere, the lack of pretense. I liked being on the edge when it came to my favorite Unix/Linux application of the moment, gThumb, which is under heavy development and always available in the latest version days after the upstream release. Fedora 13 looked great. Especially the Xfce spin I chose to run for more than a few months of heavy use. I have nothing but good things to say about Xfce, especially as it was implemented in Fedora. Great file manager (Thunar) that I still like better than just about everything else out there, excellent helper apps all around. Super fast. Stable."
