Couple of Fedora questions

Hi guys,

hope i don't come off to 'generic' in my first post. What I'm wondering is: I see the shift in the Fedora project - mainly I think about the different target group iso images (workstation etc.). What I'm looking for is a stable (not stable as in ages old, but does not crash, as for the little bugs, i'm more than happy to report them ) gnome-centric distro. I need it for the usual stuff - www browsing, office (writing) and music & film watching. Does Fedora fit that shoe, and if yes, which image? Workstation?

What I do like is the relationship between RH and Fedora as both being winners. I don't have much tech expertise, i know how to add repos and fix the most common issues. What I would desperately need is subpixel font hinting.

  • as i understand, the rpmfusion is somewhat of a multimedia repository, sort of opensuse's packman equivalent?

Thanks for your answers! Reply With Quote
