|Strange answer. |
I started with Fedora 4, and have remained with Fedora. While along the way, some versions up to 7, were flakey, the most current versions are outstanding.
I found that Fedora is not allowed to mention livna.org or the merged repros sites where firmware, multi-media stuff may be fetched. Following the advice in any forum, one comes out with an outstandingly functional distribution.
On the negative side, there is no long term support for Fedora. Typical support is for 24 months (6 months for current version, 12-18 mo for back versions).
It was true that Red Hat used Fedora to protect RH from problems. However, Fedora is more global now, and Red Hat and other distributions feed on Fedora's new offerings.
RPM is easy if you learn about yum or even better, yumex.
