The Visual History of Fedora

With the release of Ubuntu 7.04 Feisty Fawn happening in just a matter of days, last month at Phoronix we had presented The Visual History of Ubuntu. In that article we went back and looked at all Ubuntu releases to date to see how it has evolved over time both when it comes to the interface as well as the changes that had made up each release. Today we are doing the same for Fedora as we look back upon its history.

SAM Linux 2007

SAM Linux is a distribution we had never heard of in the past, but with the 2007 edition of SAM coming out this week we couldn't help but to give it a try. SAM Linux is based upon PCLinuxOS and features a LiveCD with the Xfce 4.4 desktop. SAM Linux 2007 does include Beryl/XGL support, WINE, Flash 9, RealPlayer, Java, and much more. It is a clean distribution and looks extremely nice. If you're still trying to find the perfect match, SAM Linux 2007 may be worth trying out

The Visual History of Ubuntu

While Debian has been around for over a decade, Gentoo for five years, and Mandriva/Mandrake for nearly nine years, in less than three years of existence Ubuntu has received the most attention and generated the greatest amount of publicity in the Linux limelight. Why is that? In this article we will be taking a look back at all of the Ubuntu releases to date and exploring how this Linux distribution has evolved so quickly over its short lifespan.

Fedora v. Ubuntu: A Performance Look

We have compared the 32-bit and 64-bit performance of Ubuntu and started a performance comparison of Ubuntu/Kubuntu/Xubuntu, but how does the performance of the upcoming Feisty Fawn release compare to that of Fedora 7? In this article we have enclosed benchmarks from Fedora Core 6, Ubuntu 6.10 Edgy Eft, Fedora 7 Test 2, and Ubuntu Feisty Fawn Herd 5.
