"Firstly, Fedora just looks better, despite being built around the same
Gnome desktop as Debian. The astronomical theme that accompanies you
while you launch the operating system is carried on to the blue desktop,
and there's a distinct feeling that a lot of love has gone into Fedora's
well it is just a theme though. and themes are a matter of taste. i am
not sure if that is a good argument for the topic "best for power
users, gamers, newbies".
from my pov a real power user doesent waste resources on wallpapers.
but oh well.
Secondly, Fedora manages to include OpenOffice.org
3, while Debian is
still a revision behind, and Fedora's version of Firefox keeps the
original branding, rather than the confusing rebranding of all things
Mozilla insisted on by the Debian developers."
Different target audience and release cycle. Personally i find it
quite neat that the debian guys dont do compomises on things like
"For every day desktop use, Fedora can't be beaten. The choice of
software is excellent, and we can't think of anything that's missing.
Fedora's stance on freedom is a little painful if you need proprietary
drivers or MP3 support, but these issues can be worked around."
errm... no comment, btw the debian repositorys still hold alot more
content. a few years ago linux power users still cared about freedom.
dont get me wrong... i am a long time redhat/fedora user, but i just
dont see any really good arguments in the article above... why a power
user, gamer or newbie would want to choose fedora instead debian (the
headline claims "best linux distro" but in the end it seems to be a
fedora vs debian thingie)
