Submission + - Mageia 3-beta Vs. Fedora 18; A Different Kind of Review (

hduff writes: "I recently compared the installation of Mageia3-beta with Fedora 18. When installed and fully configured to taste, you have essentially the same level of usability and ease of administration with a similar choice of desktop environments and current versions of applications running on a recent kernel using SysV-style init and RPM packaging. The meaningful differences are more easily illustrated with some history, so this will not be the typical, dull, meaningless version-to-version comparison with a plethora of useless screenshots and inevitable inane jargon overload."
