Default Fedora / Backtrack - 03-04-2010, 01:39 AM

Howdy, was just looking for some opinions on installing Fedora or Backtrack on my new mini 9 (A90). In a nutshell could you share your thoughts or opinions on how you did it, how it worked out etc.

I really haven't gotten too in to Ubuntu and would like to stick with something I know.

Thanks for your time.

I briefly had Fedora 12 installed on my Mini 9. If you are an experienced Fedora user, you probably know about RPMfusion for your non-free software needs... I believe that is where I found the broadcom wireless driver.

I have nothing bad to say about Fedora (it's a great distro) but ultimately I didn't find anything really special or unique about it either, so it didn't last long on my Mini. Your mileage may vary....
