Just about a month ago the Linux notes from DarkDuck blog started a poll where you could vote which of these two distributions you await more. It is time to give the results of that poll now.
Let me do this without any further delay.
There were more than 400 people who voted.
Unsurprisingly, there are more people in the Ubuntu camp than in the Fedora camp. The proportion is about 2:1.
|Ubuntu or Fedora - poll results|
- Fedora is more forward looking (early adoption of wayland for instance).
- Far easier to install. Fedora's installer is INMHO a mess.
- Fedora is generally so unstable, I have stopped using it, even stopped trying it.
- I loved Red Hat but have hated Fedora from the start. A recent encounter has confirmed what an inferior distro it is when compared to any decent Debian based distro.
- Preview for next RHEL.
- Fedora versions being supported only 9 months or so is like a bad joke to me...
- Fedora is always interesting technologically, including fresh packages. Also, Gnome 3 is increasingly interesting
- Solid and powerful all around for all ranges of users: IT, non-IT professionals, and casual users. Ubuntu not so great for IT or professionals. Maybe better for casual users who don't have ready access to IT pros.
- GNOME 3.20
- Love Fedora but want LTS
- I don't wait any of them. If i need to choose, it must be Gnome shell on gtk.
- Fedora has always been great about offering a "vanilla" experience, allowing us all to see what changes are taking effect at the raw desktop management level. Ubuntu always has their own thing going on, which is reflective of Ubuntu BUT not reflective of Linux as a whole (like it is with Fedora). Since my primary interest is in the growth of Linux overall and NOT just Ubuntu, I'm more interested in the Fedora releases in general than I am the Ubuntu ones (though it is always fun to see where Canonical is taking their platform).
- Fedora? Who cares!
- Ubuntu in bed with windoze
