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.

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.
