Alan Cox Calls Fedora 18 "The Worst Red Hat Distro"
Alan Cox, the venerable Linux kernel developer presently employed by Intel and an avid open-source enthusiast, has lashed out against the recent release of Fedora 18. Cox calls the new Fedora release, "the worst Red Hat distro I've ever seen." Alan ended up switching to Ubuntu as a result of his disastrous experience with Fedora 18.

Ok so problem box switched to UbuntuThe past week I have been carrying out many Fedora 18 installations as I run various benchmarks on the much-delayed distribution: Fedora 18 Systemd Boot Performance Is Mixed, AMD R600 Gallium3D Is Mixed On Fedora 18, Intel Graphics See Some Gains On Fedora 18, and Fedora 18 Fails At ARM Wrestling Arch, Ubuntu, Linaro. (Many more performance benchmarks of Fedora 18 and compared to other Linux distributions are also on the way.)
My experiences with Fedora 18 haven't been quite so bad, though it's not my favorite release in having used Fedora itself since the Fedora Core 3 "Heidelberg" days. Though I do really hate the Anaconda changes found in Fedora 18.
