Anyone using Fedora 16? I'm loving it. I have been on Ubuntu for years (grew up on old school Red Hat and Slackware) and made the switch over the F16 a bit ago. It's everything Ubuntu USED to be and then some.

Been using Sabayon Linux and PCBSD w/ XFCE here. Tried the alpha for Fedora 17 recently but thought BTRFS was going to be standard so waiting till 18 to try it again.

Fedora is nice, but I still prefer Kubuntu. I'm a KDE kinda guy. Fedora says you can run KDE, but it still looks like Gnome, so I don't like it for a desktop. I do like it for a server, but my only present server is a Mac.

I really miss my SuSE. Novell has done nice things with it since they bought it, but I miss how well it worked and how nicely it all came together. I still have a few customers that are using a SuSE client/server setup I did back in the day.

The big differences for me:

Ctrl + Del to delete. I'm not an idiot, i don't need safety features. If i did i would use windows. As sheldon from big bang theory says "Windows 7 is more user friendly than Vista......I don't like that."

No "System" up by App and Places

Question for my fellow nerds

I have a netbook that we no longer use running on Ubuntu. It is an asus eee....something. Anyway is it possible to use this to extend the range of a connection? I want to log it onto my home network in the basement and then broadcast a signal for my other laptop to grab onto.

I cannot plug it in via cable because my routers ethernet ports dont work. I'm too cheap to replace it.

I have an older version of Ubuntu on my HP laptop. I have never used any other distro except the pendrive version so I could take it with me wherever I went. I will have to check out Fedora. I have a Mac, and I use Ubuntu on my HP. Only when completely necessary do I use Windows haha. The reason I have not used any other distro is because it took countless hours getting my wireless card to work on Ubuntu haha. I guess I'm just being lazy.
