If you want a distro which does just about everything you want, go Mint. It has closed source drivers and apps, and vendor drivers. It supports all of the codecs, protocols, and rip-offs which Fedora can't because it obeys the law, stays open source, and avoids legal issues. If you think that's a bad thing, go elsewhere. You have almost completed your metamorphosis from contributor and explorer to "just user" and are passing through the troll stage. As the vestiges of the urge to _understand_ rather than _use_ atrophies, we will no longer have to watch your deterioration, and you will lose the urge to tell us how nice it is to just use what someone tells you you need.On Wed, Jul 4, 2012 at 3:09 PM, Fernando Cassia <fcassia@xxxxxxxxx> wrote:On Wed, Jul 4, 2012 at 1:05 PM, Robert Myers <rbmyersusa@xxxxxxxxx> wrote:I am anticipating that I will be able to do that in Ubuntu but not in Fedora, and conversations in Ubuntu forums indicates that my exact hardware should work just fine.I fail to grasp what would be so fundamentally different between Ubuntu and Fedora with regards to virtualization and flash support.There is no fundamental difference that I know of between Ubuntu and Fedora with regard to virtualization. With regard to flash support, Ubuntu supports it more or less transparently and, if you want to use it on Fedora, you can spend the rest of your life on forums like this one. You don't really want me here forever, do you?
You are posting in the wrong place for the problems you are having, you have gotten pointers to better places, and you stay here sadly repeating "no one here cares..." People are saying "ask over here" and you are hearing "we don't care."The difference between Fedora and Ubuntu that really matters, and if you don't want to hear it, just stop reading my posts, is that the people who use Ubuntu are generally more like the people who use Windows and Canonical knows it and caters to them. Red Hat (along with Fedora and its manifestly snotty community) turns up its nose at such users. It doesn't want them.
Anyway thanks for being who you used to be, but you don't seem to be any more. -- Bill Davidsen <davidsen@xxxxxxx> "We have more to fear from the bungling of the incompetent than from the machinations of the wicked." - from Slashdot -- users mailing list users@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx To unsubscribe or change subscription options: https://admin.fedoraproject.org/mailman/listinfo/users Guidelines: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Mailing_list_guidelines Have a question?
