And now, I have another reason for running Fedora: CentOS doesn't have a version of evolution which supports EWS (Exchange Web Services) which means that would have to use web mail again. I gave CentOS another look, just to see whether I should use it as my basic distro and there are several things missing: perl-5.16 (can be obtained from Activestate), PHP-5.4 (can be built locally) and evolution-ews, which I cannot replace. However, the fact that Fedora is now just a container distro, used for running VirtualBox, opens the field a bit, since I can also use Ubuntu 13.04. Fedora is really starting to get on my nerves with its installer, lack of configuration possibilities (grub2,systemctl) and updates which occasionally sc*w up my X11 system because the kernel updates are released without the accompanying NVIDIA module.
