1 • Fedora 29 (by saravanan on 2018-11-12 04:11:43 GMT from India) |
Thank you for the review distrowatch. F29 works good. Smooth Installation. Gnome Software Flatpak, official repo confusion exists only upon adding the repo ([not a comparison.. just an info] in ubuntu 18.10 - official repo and snap show such similarity by default).
2 • Bugs in Fedora 29 (by Kavish on 2018-11-12 04:12:35 GMT from India)
"Fedora 29 is a good release, but there are some issues with it. Users who are interested in trying out new things and are okay with the occasional bug should feel comfortable trying out Fedora 29 Workstation.
However, users wanting a polished experience might want to hold off until a few more bugs are fixed.
I have been holding off for too long - Unfortunately for me Fedora never worked!
3 • fedora, (by jfg on 2018-11-12 05:38:05 GMT from Greece)
I always try fedora releases. I always find that i cannot choose fedora for my everyday work and needs. I would prefer fedora more stable and ready for everyday use.
4 • no reboot needed in silverblue (by nix on 2018-11-12 10:39:35 GMT from Ireland)
there is an experimental way of switching to the latest tree without reboot using:
$ sudo rpm-ostree ex livefs
I tried it on silverblue 28 and it worked fine.
5 • Debian 9.6 (by Carlos Felipe Araujo on 2018-11-12 11:50:21 GMT from Brazil)
I download debian-live-9.6.0-amd64-xfce+nonfree.iso and I installed it on Virtualbox, but after installation, I reboot, I insert my user and password and debian only shows the wallpaper...
6 • Technology previews (by Microlinux on 2018-11-12 12:23:14 GMT from France)
As a long-time CentOS user (since 4.x) I wouldn't recommend Fedora to anyone suffering from high blood pressure. Sometimes I do fiddle with it, but I never use it in production. For what it's worth, it gives me a rough idea of what the next CentOS release will look like.
7 • Fedora 29... (by Marc Visscher on 2018-11-12 13:33:25 GMT from Netherlands)
I've tried various Fedora versions at several times on different machines, but I ran into the same issues over and over again. Same thing last week with Fedora 29 Xfce. Like the versions before I've tried in the last few years is that it's slow, sluggisch, updating takes ages, and on top of that, it already showed crashes the first time I booted the system after an install. I've tried it on Compaq machines, HP machines, Acer laptops and Asus laptops. Same result every time. Very weird.
The funny thing is that on the same machines Xubuntu, Manjaro (also Xfce) and Debian Stretch (again Xfce) are the complete opposite in experience. They are fast, snappy, stable, pleasant to work with, and I never encounted any issues with it so far.
Strange that a specific Linux distro can give such a different experience compared to other distro's. Since my early days of using Linux, Fedora and every other Fedora based system I've used so far gave me a headache and a hard time.
8 • To: 5 • Debian 9.6 (by debianxfce on 2018-11-12 14:04:34 GMT from Finland)
With the right mouse button menu you can launch the terminal probably. As root type: apt-get install xfce4. You can do the same command by booting to the Linux rescue mode from the Grub menu.
9 • Fedora (by Christian on 2018-11-12 14:31:16 GMT from Brazil)
I've been using Fedora since version 7. To be honest, I've skipped a few, but I've never had any major bug to prevent me from using it and also didn't had any trouble updating... On the other hand, Wayland is, in my opinion, far from being dependable. For now, I keep on using X.
10 • Silverblue (by cykodrone on 2018-11-12 16:50:28 GMT from Canada)
Nice concept, too bad spywared is part of it. I think swipey GUI developers just like to make things fly around on the screen, just makes me dizzy. ;)
11 • Fedora 29 (by Mr. Gave Up on 2018-11-12 19:20:18 GMT from United States)
I tried to use Fedora for a year. I gave it a good go. Tried to weather the bad stuff just like you would any other Distro. But for a desktop that needs to just work and stay out of the way, Fedora is NOT that distro. There are way too many todo's and maintenance items simply because of SELinux being turn up too high. To manage SELinux to that degree is well beyond average desktop users that just want a nice desktop PC to get work done. The straw that broke the camel's back for me is the fact that you have to reboot at every update.
12 • Fedora in general (by Friar Tux on 2018-11-12 20:07:09 GMT from Canada)
As with a lot of the comments before mine, I found Fedora quite problematic where ever I try it. Yet on the same machines, most 'buntu products work beautifully. (That being said, most SUSE and Arch based distros also have issues on those same machines). Not sure why, though it could just be me - hate after-install fiddling. I prefer to install the OS and be able to go right to work.
13 • Thoughts on Fedora & Gnome (by M.Z. on 2018-11-12 21:03:02 GMT from United States)
I've found lots of really neat little technical improvements in Fedora that I didn't see in other distros, like Delta RPMs to speed updates. That being said I kept running into post update issues similar to what others here mentioned. Things just break a bit too easily to make Fedora a good choice for me. I do like PCLinuxOS & Mageia for RPM desktop distros & I don't much care about the init, though the two provide options so we don't need to toss FUD around.
On the Fedora improvements front, the one thing that never really moves any direction but sideways is the basic design of Gnome 3. I don't want to put them down all together & call it junk by pointing to the bugs mentioned in DW, because that would be in bad forum (as per comments last week*); however, their basic design never actually improves. I actually like the way they are trying to integrate Wayland, yet I keep coming back to the overall design that seems very off putting to the majority of potential users. There are certainly changes going on, yet one set of annoying behaviours only ever get traded in for another & the big problems I see related to customization & ability to reliably get more traditional desktop behaviour are left to add-on makers to solve for a while before being broken by an update.
It seems that the Gnome team thinking outside the box has created an new & independent iron cube off to the side of the Linux community, which eschews the traditional desktop in favour of a vision of a new paradigm that most users just aren't interested in. I don't see much of a future there or any big potential for things other than stagnation; however, Canonical/Ubuntu moving back to Gnome does provide some potential for things to change in a direction that could be good for normal desktop users like myself.
*trying here to provide more thoughtful & constructive criticism & analysis than lasts weeks 'x-DE is junk because bugs' & replies of -'well I don't care about thoughts & analysis because other bugs exist'. That's just a FUDey thing to do. I'm actually hoping to eventually see Gnome reinvent itself again, but into something more useful next time.
14 • Fedora (by Rooster12 on 2018-11-12 22:32:41 GMT from United States)
Have never tried Fedora, using Linux for about 10 years and just haven't. Downloaded and going to take a look and see if it is useful.
Personally don't like Gnome De, although like some apps. Not sure even what Fedora uses as a DE.
15 • Fedora (by Jordan on 2018-11-12 23:05:05 GMT from United States)
A LOT of people click the Fedora link at dw every day, keeping it in the top 10 year in and year out. Ironic, as most of the 90 some distros below it on that list offer us by and large more reliability, especially but not limited to those in the Debian family (siblings, forks, or various spins, etc).
16 • Fedora (by Fernando on 2018-11-12 23:14:42 GMT from Spain)
I think I should say something about my experience with Fedora. I've been using linux almost exclusively since 2006. I had been using Solaris with the Common Desktop Environment in my work, and switched to Xubuntu on my laptop, after trying SuSE (KDE) and Ubuntu proper (GNOME) to no avail (my laptop was too old then). With new computers I went with Kubuntu and Debian KDE until GNOME 3 came out. It was a dream made reality. The desktop paradigm I had been dreaming with. Soon afterwards I switched to Fedora, because the first GNOME 3 releases were not that good and Fedora had the latest and greatest. I wasn't that happy with, say Fedora 20, but since 23 or so, it's been the most stable distro I've used. A drop-in distro, ready to go as soon as you install. The degree of polish of recent releases are unknown in the Linux world. Yes, even Ubuntu is less user friendly than current Fedora. I remember some words on making things friendly back then, from the Fedora project leader. He said that Fedora was in risk of not being used by enough people. There was a drastic change since. It's the way to go. I hope others, like Ubuntu or opensuse, follow the steps of Fedora in making an easy distro with well integrated tools. I'm really greatful to the Fedora developers for the joyful experience, for powering my computers.
17 • @Robert Rijkhoff (by david esktorp on 2018-11-13 02:48:07 GMT from United States)
Forced me to look up 'Marmite' which ended up being more interesting than Fedora.
18 • Fedora (by ForFed on 2018-11-13 13:27:07 GMT from Portugal)
It's one of the few I install, try, explore @ every new release. And want say: don't let yourself down for this DW's review, no need to wait nothing!!!
True, there's some Wayland issues. But what's the problem? None!!!
Choose, log into one of the various other dysplay servers/DEs available.
19 • Fedora (by mandog on 2018-11-13 14:16:30 GMT from Peru)
Been trying Fedora since V8 since it has been hit and miss,
v24 changed all that and now at 29 its a fine distribution.
We must also remember fedora is aimed at developers with it it brings the latest innovations to the table.
Sorry buntu users you really are out of the game in the last few years with development.
Ubuntu once was the leading Distro is now just a has been, to many fails in the quest to be the Ms of the Linux world.
I would say Manjaro fits the bill now all without multi million $ backing, Easy setup rolling release, good forums good support in the forums. Based on Arch what more do you need other than swallow your pride.
20 • Silver Blue... (by tom joad on 2018-11-13 15:15:46 GMT from Austria)
I I have never tried Fedora or Silver Blue nor will that change any time soon.
That said the brief poll description is about all that I know about it. Nor does that preclude me having an opinion about the subject. And that opinion is actually a question.
Why exactly is Silver Blue necessary to the order of things Linux? Marshalling off the core system from the, I guess, rag tag elements seems like a good thing...I guess. But there are a lot of stable predictable Linux OS that operate pretty normally. I am using Mint and MX Linux. I don't see much of any difficulty with those two. I would discribe them boring really. Both do what they do and stay out of the way. And like others have stated, I have stuff to get done. I only troubleshoot when I am made to do it. I refuse to go looking for 'trouble' as it were.
Now a wild eyed software scheme like the one that spews forth from North West Washington State might benefit from something like Silver Blue.
Silver Blue, it seems to me, falls into the catagory of 'If it ain't broke, DON'T fix it' or 'Wait and see.'
But if Silver Blue evolves and is adopted by more distros making it more developed and accepted...Fine. Another systemd type debacle named Silver Blue would not be good IMHO.
21 • Fedora 29 (by Sam on 2018-11-13 17:26:46 GMT from United States)
Wish I could try it - but in Virtual Box on both my Spectre X2 and my cheapy Ideapad 330 Fedora 29 seems to install, but upon reboot a graphical desktop never appears - just a black screen where I can't even escape to command line.
22 • IBM Silver Blue (by Garon on 2018-11-13 18:28:24 GMT from United States)
I can just see the new IBM distro now. Named "OS/2 Silver Blue". Kind of neat sounding. It's all alright now. RHEL and Fedora are IBM's babies now.
23 • Silverblue (by Robert on 2018-11-13 19:26:30 GMT from United States)
Silverblue sounds very similar to an idea I had soon after flatpak came about.
Basically I wanted to use a flatpak runtime as the base system, loaded with a very minimal boot environment or initramfs. Then use flatpak as the sole package management system for all the userspace applications.
I'm not sure if this could actually work that way, but Silverblue sounds similar in the end result.
24 • Fedora 29 definitely has some bugs. (by LA Ashley on 2018-11-13 22:48:44 GMT from Canada)
Looks good until a show-stopper stops the show.
Distros need to fix not ignore bugs.
25 • Fedora (by Henry on 2018-11-14 05:10:39 GMT from Sweden)
Nothing wrong with Fedora,
it's been powering my workflow for a decade now.
GNU/Linux distros in general has iron out the bugs that tempered everyday usage before.
Fedora has as many or as few bugs as any other distro.
26 • balancing act (by Tim on 2018-11-14 13:46:58 GMT from United States)
I don't use Fedora so I can't comment on that, but I've come to realize over the years that whether a complex piece of software is "buggy" or not is often incredibly user-specific. If you just go by what people complain about you'd hit the conclusion that every piece of software ever written sucks. I'm at the point where I actually believe many of those complaints... but I think they're often hyper specific to a certain hardware configuration.
The only answer I have for the end user is just keep trying stuff until you find something you're happy with, and stick with that as long as you can. I'm happily within the sphere of Ubuntu MATE, and I ran 17.04 and 17.10 as long as I possibly could. But then 18.04 LTS came along and gave me a lot of wifi problems. So I had 18.10 installed once they released the beta. It's been great. If 18.04 LTS had not given me problems, I'd probably stuck with it for years and never bothered with 18.10 or 19.04. If 18.10 had been problematic for me I might have tried another distro entirely.
Since 18.10 (which I really like) is EOL next spring, I'll be making these decisions again. But the goal is always the same: find something that gets security support and does a good job. And then be grateful for the developers who gave me this.
27 • VOID (by zephyr on 2018-11-14 10:39:21 GMT from United States)
VOID is an extraordinary distribution, thought I would take a spin with it, the main interest was runit as an init and very surprised just how good the distro is!
Install Lxde and then converted to Openbox, install all necessary apps and configs, including a conky and Compton, looks awesome!
Very happy with the install, apart from using solely Devuan this is rock solid and quite stable distribution!
28 • Same problems as Tim (by Garon on 2018-11-14 18:23:20 GMT from United States)
I've also had the same problems with Mate 18.04 LTS so I went back to 17.10. I will upgrade when we have a Mate 18.04.1 LTS. (I hope they do) We'll just have to see what happens. I may even try out 18.10 to see what its all about. Anyway its all good.
29 • Fedora 29 (by tech in san diego on 2018-11-16 04:21:14 GMT from United States)
You hit the nail squarely on the head! I have tried every new release of Fedora when it is announced. My first impressions with 29 were, "they finally got it right". But like you, reality soon set in and I was forced to dump it.
If they want to replicate Arch, and have us to all the compiling for them, then just say so and we will know what to expect, but don't hand us a bunch of BS and then later find out in the forums that this or that app doesn't work. Or my personal favorite 600+ issues opened, 522 closed since it was released! Is this supposed to make me feel warm and fuzzy about Red Hat's corporate offerings?
Do it right the first time or don't bother to do it at all.
30 • @29 Fedora 29 (by mandog on 2018-11-16 13:26:48 GMT from Peru)
Do you actually know what Fedora is?
A testing distro for R/H its primary goal is to test and develop the latest innovations its not aimed at the home user, Its aimed at developers its a testing ground for all of Linux.
So the odd broken BLAA BLAA is expected, But saying that from what I read Ubuntu is not that much better and aimed at the masses.,
Then again I can't remember the last breakage I had with Arch Linux.
Fedora 29 also works fine for me as well far better than I expect from a development distribution nothing i use is broken not even any annoying sellinux messages in this version, and Wayland works with my nvidia card flawlessly.
31 • Fedora 29 (by dolphin on 2018-11-16 13:52:52 GMT from Italy)
Fedora 29 Workstation is best used with Xorg because Wayland is not stable yet. For the installation of additional programs DNFdragora (or DNF via Terminal) are much more reliable than Gnome Software. The thing that puzzles me about the F29 is the absence of the final version of both the Xfce spin and the LXQt spin: something that has never happened in the past.
32 • ubuntu (by Tim on 2018-11-16 15:53:47 GMT from United States)
I wouldn't put Ubuntu into that category... the more valid comparison I'd say would be Fedora is like Debian testing.
I've installed all of the Ubuntu MATE releases for the last couple of years and had very few problems. My wifi bugs that I talked about in 18.04 are that if the connection isn't used for a while it has to be reset. A pain, but not a showstopper. For the most part I've had good luck with the Ubuntu interim releases... actually better luck than with the Ubuntu LTS ones! But that's just me personally- and I notice a difference between how much my different machines "like" a release. So I think specific hardware is really important when discussing how buggy something is.
33 • Fedora (by Rob on 2018-11-16 22:47:19 GMT from United Kingdom)
I have Fedora installed on my laptop, but a rarely boot into it. It's a nice distribution. Fast updates and doesn't ship stale packages like Debian/Ubuntu.
However Gnome Shell is very much like a rock. Immoveable... It slowly gets weathered overtime, losing more and more features...
