It's from February. I just saw it. Sorry if it's already been posted.

Interesting comparison, maybe a little superficial.

But that website craps on their visitors, ads and nag screens galore. Don't visit this without an ad blocker.
My browser went to 100% CPU utilization just from opening that page.

Oops, I didn't notice; I use a good blocker.

That's good, I like fun! I would have also talked about the distribution's community. I still think Gentoo would have won, the Gentoo community is full of fun people.

I just lost a lot of respect for techradar. My company uses it for some things, but generally with the tools we pay attention to they have a useful article about what the product is, where it's going and why it's important.

This article is a travesty.

You're right. To heck with this, I'm going back to Fedora. Thanks for clearing things up for me.

Oh my, they find it amazing that some IT dinosaurs (hint: we) set hostname from command line. So PRO of us, indeed :lol:
Well, I see I wasn't the only one disappointed with overall quality of the article.

Even though we couldn't find any fault in APT or yum, Arch's Pacman and Gentoo's Portage system fare better because of the level of sophistication and elegance with which they manage packages.
No matter how serious that article can be taken, I am glad the authors recognized the elegance of Portage! :lol:

Fedora is a distribution for power user? I thought it was the beginners distribution of Red Hat... But I can be wrong.

Anyway, too bad they didn't mention Alpine (Musl and Openrc based distribution) and Void Linux (Runit based distribution). Both are minimalist yet powerful distributions. Not as customizable as Gentoo but at least as powerful as Debian (for Alpine) and Arch (for Void).

I thought Redhat was essentially a testing version of RHEL. I was on Redhat before they went public, and the buzz then was that Fedora was supposed to be a relatively normal distro, supported by Redhat.

I thought RHEL was just a testing distro for CentOS.
