The Three Faces of Fedora – Prologue
Although the title above takes a page from film history, Joanne Woodward won’t be appearing in this blog.
[Okay kids, Joanne Woodward was an actress in the mid-20th Century who was married to Paul Newman, another actor around the same time who retired from acting to race cars and make great salad dressing and cookies. One of her most famous roles was playing the schizophrenic woman in “The Three Faces of Eve,” hence the source of the title of this blog series.]
[No, I’m not saying I think Fedora is schizophrenic. I’m just playing off the film title. Sheesh.]
With a few of boxes to spare at the offices of Redwood Digital Research in beautiful downtown Felton, Calif. — no, you can’t have them — I thought I’d run a small experiment: Take Fedora 11 and run it on separate machines with three different desktop environments. You know the lineup — GNOME, KDE and Xfce, which comes as a Fedora spin.
Then, of course, write about the results and observations here.
Starting Monday: The Three Faces of Fedora: GNOME on F11. Watch this space.
