| I’m very happy with this Fedora release and the new Gnome is very promising
| and it’s extremely easy to use without separating the user from going deep
| into the system if he likes to. It has multiple “spins” (flavors) and you can
| create your own custom spin with a nice tool. for me it’s very stable till
| now and it has solved my DVD burner I/O problems completely and it saved
| power “GREATLY”. it stays running on my 12-Cell battery for 5:30 hours!
| Thanks for “powertop” from Intel for its utility and great thanks for the
| tickless kernel.

10 Days With Windows Vista Ultimate Edition

,----[ Quote ]
| Ok, it's been ten days since I installed Microsoft Windows Vista
| Ultimate Edition on a basic Compaq laptop and its time to talk about
| how things went. Did the world end? Am I ready to run to Linux
| screaming yet? Maybe, read on to find out what?s good and what's
| bad with Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition.

| Overall Windows Vista is most definitely a strong effort by
| Microsoft to replace Windows XP. Unfortunately thanks to many of
| the problems I ran into over the last 10 days I can't recommend
| it for anyone but early adopters or those who don't mind finding
| work-arounds for these types of problems. Ultimately Windows
| Vista does remind me of the ill-fated Windows Millennium
| ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ ^^^^^^
| product in that it is not really a new product at all but
| mainly a refresh of a previous one. Does it look better? Sure.
| Is it faster? Only for those with the right hardware. Is it ready
| for prime time and corporations? That depends on how brave they
| are! But after 10 days, my recommendation is still to wait.
| Microsoft will fix most of these issue with time and then maybe
| Vista will be worthy replacement for Windows XP.
