I'm running Fedora Core 1 (upgraded from formerly RH8 then RH9) on one of my PCs
that I use daily and it's been solid, reliable and full-featured. I really like
it. However, it seems a bit "heavy" for an audio application... It's got a lot
of fluff that gets installed without any real choice in the matter. I have
learned that cleaner is better for my audio PC.
Of course rpm binaries and a familiar environment is a big plus.
