    Yeah I can't wait to get home so I can play. I am out of town on business for the next month.

    FC6 comes with the new desktop enhancements for the cube. I am curious to try it out.

    The cube?
    With any luck I'll have it downloaded by tomorrow evening.
    I'm not sure if this was any help, but I hope it didn't make you stupider.

    Oh that... it looks like this xgl thingy I wanted to try before my FC5 decided to update itself into oblivion.

    Funny that Redhat is embracing XGL/Compiz, since it's Novell tech, AKA Redhat's #1 competitor in the enterprise Linux market. Kind of like if Microsoft decided to ship Vista with OS X dashboard. (not that I'd put it past them)

    I wouldn't overlook the fact that Novell copied the idea for those effects from Macs. Redhat is embracing it not because of the cool effects but the fact that the technology can help expand the possibilities for the DT's.

    OK. LINUX n00b HERE, I HAVE TRIED UBUNTU, THATS ABOUT IT, AND I CAN GET THE HANG OF THE BASICS.. e.g. aptitude... AND THAT SORT OF STUFF, AND I PREFER IT OVER WINDOWS

    BUT WILL I BE ABLE TO WORK MY WAY THROUGH FC6 ??? AS A LINUX n00b, WILL I STRUGGLE MY *** OFF. LOL..

    ALSO I GOT AROUND MOST (IF NOT ALL) OF MY UBUNTU PROBLEMS USING THE UBUNTU FORUMS..

    DOES FC6 HAVE SUCH A FRIENDLY AND FAST COMMUNITY FOR n00b's.. lol...

    Why are you typing in caps? Is your caps lock key stuck or something? If it isn't then you should know that typing in caps signifies yelling in a forum.


    Does anyone know if the graphical interface of the installer has improved or not?

    Maybe at one point there was validity to the idea of a "noob distro" but now they've all pretty much been streamlined in very similar experiences in terms of command line demands and core *nix competency vs. graphical interfaces and automation. If you install Fedora you're probably going to have an very similar experience to that you had with Ubuntu.

    My recommendation, fwiw, is to just upgrade to edgy so you can play with (in some cases MUCH) newer packages. Assuming you're running dapper now, anyway:

    Code:
    # sed -i.bak 's/dapper/edgy/g' /etc/apt/sources.list
    # aptitude update 
    # aptitude upgrade
    # aptitude dist-upgrade
    No warranty, but fixing a system hosed by taking the advice of strangers on the internet is a great way to learn about linux internals.

    I'm downloadng it atm. I had FC4 running for a while, then upgraded to FC5. Now I don't have it running at all cos I got rid of it for some strange reason - I'll install FC6 when I can and will see what tis like

    I don't know if it's just me, but was the installation for FC5 a heck of a lot slicker/easier than FC4? I can't remember how/why it was, but for some reason I felt the installation for FC5 was a lot smoother than FC4. Dunno..
