Installing Fedora was no problem and I felt instantly at home. One of
the benefits of Fedora is “yum”. Using this, I can install applications
without having to hunt down the source and compile it. From the console,
“yum install firefox” would download and install the latest version of
FireFox, compiled for my system. By using the yum system, you can
periodically run “yum update” and any newer packages can be downloaded
and updated. There is also a GUI front end to yum, should you be afraid
of using the console.
