In 2006, my Company wanted to Migrate to Linux as Windows was a costly affair for its size.
I tasted Red-Hat's Madrakes Linux. My issues at that time were "Excel" and "Power point" was not replaced by Linux's Office Suite in a decent manner. Pivoting is the power of Excel and PPT's animations are fantastic and I felt it can't be done in Linux.
Then in 2010 April, my sister gave me Ubuntu 10.04 LTS. That was an amazing Linux and the only issue I faced was stability - it was not stable for my requirements. Then I surfed through some 20+ Debian Linux. Then some body said RPM is better than Debian and you can try Suse, Fedora, Centos & like.
I tested CENT-OS liked its stability, speed, security & simplicity. But it was not windows friendly and not for a newbie like me. Suse is a cheating Linux in the sense the features of Live Boot was not available on Installation. Then finally I tried Fedota 15 and was 100% satisfied. Then I tried Fedora 16 DVD and now Fedora 17 DVD. I am amazed by the features and futuristic aspects of the Fedora.
I am recommending Fedora to those who want better computing experience. I have introduced 10 people, Fedora and all of them love it.
My only sadness about Fedora is that it's life cycle is very short and "Rolling Release" concept is not being followed.
The recent issues I faced are with the following:
a) reducing boot time through systemctl mask resulted in system crash and I am unable to undo it. I had to reinstall the entire OS
b) Fedora 17 is slowest compared with Fedora 15 & Fedora 16. Not able to increase the speed.
c) Revsior is not working well
Yet, I consider Fedora is the best Linux.
