Re: [PLUG] Fedora 25

I would never recommend using Fedora as a work station as its more or less just a test distro for RedHat (for any Fedora Fan boys/girls out there I am not saying anything against Fedora as a distro just not smart to use as a workstation). If you need a workstation that is stable I would def recommend CentOS 7 or Ubuntu 16.04 (personally I like Mate or Gnome but Unity is nice if you can spare the ram lol). If your looking more for up to date but still reasonably stable Antergos is a nice Arch based distro with the only issue Ive ran into running it was a Gnome update that made login strange but was fixed within a few days.

If you don't mind me asking, why are you using Fedora?  Would or does
not CentOS fulfill your needs?
