Finally, Linux on my desktop

August 10, 2004

After a quick shot at installing “Debian”: from the seven (!) downloaded CD-images, I decided my time was too valuable to pretend being as geeky as Debian apparently requires. Let me just say, that installing Debian 3.0r2 had a very 1998-ish feeling too it. Instead I decided to give “Fedora”: Core 2 a try, and what a difference. Everything installed without a hitch from the “DVD-image”:, and so far I have been able to use all of my hardware, including the integrated Intel network adapter, Matrox G450 graphicscard (in DualHead mode), and my USB-mouse (all of which did not work with Debian, without downloading and compiling modules).
