Mad Penguin has posted a review on Fedora Core 2

Fedora Core 2 (FC2) is the latest offering from the Red Hat community driven Fedora Project. It has a plethora of new features including the new 2.6.5 Kernel, Gnome 2.6, KDE 3.2, an implementation of SE Linux and the X.org X11 windowing system. Fedora Core 2 is a professional distribution that focuses on functionality and ease of use, without patronising the user and keeping the clutter to a minimum.

This review was conducted on three different machines in order to ascertain performance on each of the machines. The first and main machine for which the majority of the review was conducted on was an ageing P3 450mhz machine with 384 mb of Ram, a Voodoo 3 3000 16 mb graphics card and a 17 gb Hard disk. The second machine was an Athlon AMD 1800+ XP with 512 mb of Ram, a Radeon 9600 Pro together with 2 40 gb hard disks. The third machine was a P4 3.06 mhz laptop, with 256 mb of Ram, a NVIDIA GeForce FX 64 mb graphics card and a 60 gb hard disk.
