The Review: Werewolf, Fedora’s Redeemer?

,----[ Quote
| Fedora 8 is a distribution to beat. Its great features and much improved
| stability simply rocks. It may not be a distro that I can say is ideal for
| Linux newbies, but it is almost there. So, to answer the question: Is
| Werewolf Fedora’s Redeemer? In my own opinion, it is. It somehow revived
| Fedora from its previous blunders. I’m sure Fedora faithfuls will never be
| tempted to look at Ubuntu again. Can Werewolf help put Fedora back on top? As
| of the moment, Fedora is still ranked #4 in Distrowatch. If Werewolf will
| fail to do so, at least it will serve as a catalyst for future releases to
| take Fedora back to where it truly belongs. I think the only direction Fedora
| is going right now is certainly upward.
