    Fedora 28 KDE Plasma--Top Quality Product

    New Fedora user here,

    Just want to say how pleased I am with the experience so far with Fedora 28. Previously, I have used Mandriva/Mageia/Rosa, Kubuntu, Netrunner (Debian and Rolling) and Arch variants. Although they all have their strengths it always felt like something was just not quite right. They all seemed to lack a cohesiveness especially when it came to packaging and repository quality. With the exception of the Arch variants, they all suffered from out of date packages. The Arch variants were either not quite as refined or they suffered from occasional breakdowns after updates.

    Finally, I looked at Fedora 28. I had less than succesful experiences with Fedora in the past but decided to give it another try and was pleasantly surprised. The installation was without issues and the repositories are far more up-to-date than I expected. I only have a problem with one application but I am convinced it is related to the NVIDIA graphics driver. This issue always seems to introduce complications no matter what distribution it is.

    The community seems to be "down to earth" even though Fedora is backed by Red Hat. I should have tried Fedora much sooner. I may have saved months, if not years, of distro-hopping. So far it looks like I can be happy with Fedora for the foreseeable future. Kudos to the developers and supporting community. This is a high quality product.

    Thank you,

    Me too.
    I run Fedora KDE Plasma 5.13 on one disk drive and Gnome on a second diskdrive.
    Gnome doesn't like to advertise it's version or date of last update.

    Like a man in love with two women and can't decide between,
    Gnome and KDE are like that for me, except I don't have to abandon either.

    Since I am doing some programming, either of the interfaces is for me.

    Yeah, I'll "third" that notion. I've used KDE ever since Mandrake/Mandriva in 2003. They were KDE from the ground up the same way Fedora is Gnome-based (at least, it used to be considered that).

    I never had severe problems with KDE on Fedora, except for the ones that were traceable to my use of nVidia drivers. They played havoc with scrolling at one point. F28 has been exceptional - KDE just "feels right" these days. Krunner is now a bit of a mandatory tool as far as I'm concerned.

    think so too. has been working with linux since 1996, with red since 2007 and fedora since 2004.

    since the shell I can not work anymore with gnome, so i use kde now, which is always more fun.

    it is usually stable, it is always up to date, what more do I want?

    Debian is another distro that suffers from out-of-date software. I wouldn't mind Debian on a secondary computer - it just so happens that I have Fedora on all my computers. Fedora 28 should be your main system, especially for personal stuff, the out-of-date-software-distros are a good second, if you have programming work to do and you care for nothing except compiling stuff.

    I can testify that the Fedora community is one of the best. Ubuntu's community is far too hypocritical and political (especially so because of the forum moderators)

    Fedora lacks marketing. It's the only thing it lacks.

    This forum is a nice and quiet place, mainly for productivity.

    I've been jumping between Kubuntu and Linux Mint KDE/Cinnamon since I stopped using Fedora (Sorry) Now I'm on KDE Neon. I like the idea of an up to date desktop on a stable long term base. I like Cinnamon but it just doesn't quite feel "there" for me. Maybe after a couple more releases. I was almost tempted to install Manjaro because of the rolling release factor, maybe one day. My wireless Brother printer/scanner was a breeze to get going on an Ubuntu base was an another reason to stay put. As for the forums, Fedora is still my fav, with Kubuntu and Mint coming in second. Forget the Ubuntu forum, it's a friggin' nightmare!
    I used to miss my wife but then my aim improved.

    Re: Fedora 28 KDE Plasma--Top Quality Product

    Hi Guys,
    I just installed F29 Pre-GoLive KDE and its as good or better than the F28 version. Don't dispair, F29KDE is to be released by November.
    If you want an early evalution, look for:
