Fedora Core 4
Fedora Core 4 is a distribution of Linux that is sponsored by Red Hat for those who don't know.
I found the installation for it very strait forward. It is
graphical and very user friendly. The only problem with the
installation is that if the CD you use has dust or a scratch, there's a
chance the installation will fail. I find this happens more often
if you use CDs you burn using the ISOs that are up for download on the
official Fedora Core website. I suggest you either burn the CDs as
you need them to minimize the risk of damage being done to the CDs,
hunt for some professionally made ones on the Internet, or do an FTP
installation. When you are done installing it and boot for the first
time, you will have to do a sound card test and set up a normal user
account. When ever you log in, it is highly recommended
that you log in using your normal user account and not as the root
user. This is because if someone hacks into your computer while
you are the root user, the hacker can do serious damage to your system.
The two main desktop environments that come with Fedora Core 4,
GNOME(default) and KDE, give you a Linux experience that is very Windows
like. GNOME is good but you can't really ad items to the
menus. If you know what you are doing, you could install Smeg Menu Editor or upgrade GNOME using the instructions found here.
KDE allows you to add items to the menu but I found KDE to be annoying
as that just about every time I hold down the shift key for extended
periods of time, weird things happen. I also noticed that in both
desktop environments, the update notification applet doesn't work.
For the past few months on my computer, not once have I seen it tell me
that updates are available even though there are updates
available. A little work around would be to install a package
called yum-updateonboot which is in the Fedora Extras repository.
If you want to get programs you used to have for Windows, good luck getting them to work smoothly. You could install WINE
but WINE at the time I am writing this is still in alpha and I find a
lot of things don't run smoothly on it. You could use QEMU
to set up a virtual computer and install Windows and your software on
it but that will defeat the purpose of switching to Linux. If
worse comes to worse, you could always find Linux equivalents for the
software you want to use.
Overall, it is a good distribution of Linux. It could be better but it is constantly being improved.
