    I wonder how people can live with all the breakage in this distro. I guess most of them are developers.

    Guhh, they're doing almost everything I want Ubuntu to do.
    You know, I'm going to keep telling people about Ubuntu (and wearing my Ubuntu hoodie), but for my personal use.. I may just have to go with Fedora instead..

    ..but then, let's be honest; until Thunderbird supports proper conversation threading, gmail is better.

    Sounds nice. But risky, so I don't mind waiting half a year to try it out.

    That is exacly my situation

    I use Fedora, but recommend Ubuntu to others. I think the Fedora artwork can scare anyone away

    Well most of what is now new in Fedora will be part of the next version of the other major distros. It seems as if Fedora is more and more becoming the test bed for new technologies that then move to become standard upstream in the next cycle(s).

    If anyone are too lazt to download the nightly build from
    http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.o.../latest-trunk/

    and fire it up under an another account than your default (just for safely), then check out this blog:

    and scroll down a bit, and you will see the most amazing new features in action.

    I welcome Thunderbird 3 (beta) in Fedora 11, even if it means I will have to give up on a few extensions.
