    Which version of FC


    Hi everyone, I've heard that Fedora Core 3 is the best version around, but FC4 is the latest. Does anyone know why FC4 isn't as good as FC3? I'm thinking of switching from SuSE to FC. Any information is welcome, thanks.

    I had really good luck with FC3 (aside from some small issues) and have not used FC4 much. So, all I can tell you is that FC3 is pretty good.

    Different software works better with different hardware.

    True. I should have mentioned that in my post. My opinion is purely subjective (I guess all distro advice is ).

    I've used FC one through FC four. I will have to say I was pleased with one through three, but for me, four has been a huge disappointment. I'd go with FC three if you make the switch. SuSE is a great distro though. Are you changing for experimental purposes?
