    Well he asked between Ubuntu 6.10 and FC 6. So, I told him to dual boot those two. He may ultimately have a multi boot system with FC6, Ubuntu 6.10, Slackware 11, all BSD's, Solaris 11 and what not. I am just talking about those two ;) .
    You can't triple boot two OS's without repeating one :idea:

    They is no need for war of distros here!! Some prefer Ubuntu, some like Fedora.
    Also both come with the latest the Open-source has to offer. Stop fighting, start
    learning.

    i'll say use ubuntu as it is debian based and for apt-get and 15000+ packages!rpm is a messy thing!
    personally i'll say get Debian Etch 4.0

    debianise the Linux World. :))

    @Desmataks, ATI chipset doesn't work very well with Linux. ATI is notorious for it's
    messy behavoir with Linux. So I can't say anything more here.

    well Ubuntu 6.10 is not much different than 6.06 that's why i'll try Fedora core 6 this time ( posting this on FC6 )

    ubuntu only. i am quite comfortable with it and i love apt. besides, my bandwidth is not that much to download fedora. i have done it once but it took days. i am using ubuntu edgy rt now.

    i wud choose ubuntu edgy as i am fond of debian and apt. also, the size of download is much less. the hefty size of fedora core 6 will drive a person of low bandwith crazy.
