Fedora 25 Workstation Revisited
Like the title says, I’ve Revisited Fedora 25. I have become a little disgruntled with Mint 18.1 as Clem has still not fixed the installer Bug. I down loaded the latest 18.1 and the bug is still there and a Pita for new installs on EFI / Gpt partitions. LM has been my main distro for years, but it seems the latest has a installer problem that has not been fixed since the latest 18.1 release. So I’ve been trying out several Distro’s just to see if there might be a better one for me. So far I always go back to LM.
Today I decided to give Fedora 25 with the Cinnamon desktop a try on one of my SSD Disks. I am happy to say so far it is rock solid and stable, although the install took me awhile to figure out and get it installed. After the install, I found a much improved package manager called YUMEX and I have to say it works great so far. I have never really cared for RPM package management. But have to say this is a big improvement over the old system that fedora use to have. I understand that the next version 26, which is in Alpha right now, will be even better. I still Like the APT package system, and it is hard to beat. Will give Fedora a try for awhile and see how it goes. I may try it with the LXDE as I really like LXDE as well as Cinnamon too. I may pay a visit to Suse Tumbleweed again. Then there is Manjaro now in 3rd place. Lots of choices.
