"Red Hat's Fedora Core 3 is a solid, general-purpose Linux distribution, the greatest strength—and weakness—of which is its breakneck release pace. With a broad user base and a strong development team, Fedora can shine in roles from desktop to small-server use, but companies running Fedora must plan for at-least-yearly upgrades. Fedora Core 3 is free and can be downloaded at fedora.redhat.com.
As with the previous two releases, Fedora Core 3, which became available this month, is a strong general-purpose Linux distribution and ships with a good variety of open-source software. It also benefits from a range of precompiled packages of other software not included by default that's rivaled only by Debian GNU/Linux."
