TeX under Fedora is frankly a joke these days :-( I don't know if
there's currently a maintainer. Certainly no one's responding to
critical bug reports. ConTeXt is literally unusable out of the box (as
in, it doesn't run at all), which make typesetting my books
problematic. I'm currently editing them on my box, and then
typesetting them on my girlfriend's box, which is running an older
version of Fedora, which does at least have a working texexec.
Never used ConTeXt, but my experience, and I use LaTeX everyday
(sometimes every waking hour) is to the contrary. There are a lot of
sty files that have been broken up now, but that involves installing
the corresponding texlive-*.sty: a bit frustrating at times perhaps, but
this was supposed to happen as per the texlive-2012 proposal (and since
this is a one-time installation deal) not a big deal at all.
I do keep track of whatever I install so that in the future, if I
install texlive somewhere else, I just cut and paste a line and don't
miss the sty's. Currently, that line stands at:
sudo yum install
So, I am a pretty satisfied customer wrt LaTeX on Fedora.
Hopefully I am not speaking too soon!
