It's part of their "policy" to keep Fedora with only free software. Adding rpmfusions and a couple more isn't very hard. Obviously you can use XFCE/KDE/etc if you don't like gnome. Overall it is a really nice middle ground distro. Middle ground as in not too much for noobs like ubuntu but not too much for experts like Arch/Slack.

I'm writing this from work on a Pentium 4 running Fedora 15 KDE on a usb key and it works fine after some tweaking tongue.gif

I would do the same if I weren't playing various games. Unfortunately the open source drivers aren't yet good enough to handle things like HL2, Portal, WoW, etc.

Gnome 3 sucks IMO. Though I've never used fedora, I've heard quite a few people who don't like yum. And Arch is awesome <3

I like F16. I´m ditching the *buntus because of utter retardation (Kubuntu is the only one worth running, and even that is getting lame). Don´t care much for Gnome3, but their KDE and LXDE spins are nice. F16 actually supports all my laptop´s devices from the get go. Sure, I just need to install a few firmware files, but I´ve grown lazy tongue.gif.

I quite like Gnome 3. BUT, what is really like is that my wife thinks it's PRETTY and has now come round to using Fedora / Linux. For years I had this dual boot with WindoWzz XP rubbish going on just so she could continue to use it. BUT ... now ... thanks to Gnome 3 she is using Fedora full time.

Gnome 3 is still a bit buggy, and I am hanging for some update to just make everything work like it should but, at least my wife is now happy to use Fedoora.

BUT there are too many things that are hidden in Gnome 3. I don't want to have to do a google search in order to find out how to do things in Gnome 3. It's my desktop damit and I should just be able to find it myself. They are going to have to fix that soon. As of Gnome 3.2 too much is still hidden in same manner WindoWzz XP did. But, I'm using Gnome 3 now because my wife likes it, and that is actually what is most important to me now.

I always end up at the Arch Wiki site trouble shooting stuff. I've got to admit, you want something fixed, or to learn how to do something, then ask an Arch!

I don't like what has been done with FedoraForum.org. The new search function is utter crap. The layout of google search It has made it really unusable. I always end up going to the Arch Wiki or accessing material on Fedora Forum via an external google search rather than have to negotiate through the Fedora Forum. That's no reflection on the people on Fedora Forum, just the new crappy search layout.

The proprietary drivers for amd work now, they're in the rpmfusions repos as xorg-x11-drv-catalyst, kmod-catalyst and akmod-catalyst.

You only need to install akmod-catalyst, it will pull in everything else you might need.

I was wondering about that. I always installed the drivers downloaded from AMD site.

I had to add nomodeset to my boot parameters in grub. I tried to blacklist radeon and radeonhd in /etc/modprobe.d and they would still activate some framebuffer and fglrx doesn't like it.

Installing akmod-catalyst from RPM Fusion also takes care of all of that automagically. smile.gif
