I am using Fedora since a very long time privately, I have started with Redhat, when
Fedora came up I switched to Fedora. I use always two systems Windows and Fedora quasi
paralell. This means if in a function Windows is better Windows, if Fedora is better
Fedora. Partly I had 2 disks in the system one for Windows, one for Fedora. But since I
work with laptops I use Fedora on USB connected media, currently Fedora on a 64GB usb 3.0
connected flash medium. Fedora is in this configuration -as I feel- quite quick, as it
would be on the internal disk. As mass storage I use the laptop internal Windows disk. I
saw that data transfering from the Laptop internal disk to an external disk and vice versa
is much more quicker, when it's controlled from Fedora on usb flash medium, then it
is, when controlled from the laptop internal disk, there are many examples where fedora is
comparable ( or better) as the Apps of Windows.
Since development of F24 I have problems with testing in my small corner "Fedora
paralell to Windows on usb connected media". In F24 there was no dual boot Windows -
Fedora possible - requirement for Final, this had worked always in the previous
"editions" of Fedora. Now in F25 it is not possible to install F25 Alpha on an
usb connected medium - not on an usb flash medium, not on an external disk. I filed a bug
against dracut - dracut showed the error, possibly I should have filed against Anaconda
- nearly no reaction on this bug - was not worth the invested work.
It might be, that Fedora is mainly used on bigger systems, and not so important for
smaller systems, but also on smaller systems there are people, who could learn to love
Fedora, if there is more promotion for this part of the computer community. Especially
Windows oriented users.
