    Default Fedora 18 Isn't Looking Too Good, Anaconda Problems

    Phoronix: Fedora 18 Isn't Looking Too Good, Anaconda Problems

    The release of Fedora 18 has already been delayed five times and it's still uncertain when this next Fedora Linux release will actually ship...

    Nothing new, Fedora must target less new features. Don't byte off more than you can chew, end of story.

    IMO 6 month release schedules are just silly in the first place, I wish fedora (and ubuntu) would consider having longer time between releases, and more post-release updates/support for existing releases.

    On the bright side, while Anaconda holds the release the distribution packages actually get into shape. I've been using Fedora 18 and it's rock solid so far.

    This is exactly what Canonical and Red Hat do with Ubuntu LTS and RHEL. Things are often backported to the LTS/RHEL releases. You don't have to use the newest Fedora/Ubuntu... that's your own choice :P

    Will be interesting to see if Red Hat will put this new anaconda installer also onto RHEL 7. Maybe that's the reason why they hurry this anaconda revamp into Fedora 18. It's likely that RHEL 7 will be based on F18. I read that somewhere but have no idea if this was rumor or for sure.

    Is this similar to the issues openSUSE were having post 12.1? They started slipping behind schedules and it eventually led to some soul searching, and then procedural changes within the distro's release management.

    They need to further though, using ubuntu as an example, their LTS releases are too slow with he hardware enablement updates, and you often get stuck with old software, having to use a bunch of ppa's to keep things up to date.

    For example I have ivybridge graphics, so ubuntu 12.04 isn't really an option with its old kernel/drivers. At least fedora is usually decent about updating those.

    Ubuntu is based on Debian and Debian developers are retards.
