| background on the release, specifically the new custom spins. 


Fedora 8 Review

,----[ Quote ]
| Fedora (previously called Fedora Core) is an RPM-based, general purpose Linux 
| distribution, developed by the community-supported Fedora Project and 
| sponsored by Red Hat. Fedora's mission statement is: "Fedora is about the 
| rapid progress of Free and Open Source software."   
| [...]
| Red Hat ruled the Linux distribution world, before Ubuntu came and took over. 
| With the current release for Fedora, it seems that Red Hat is fighting really 
| hard to control the lost ground. The intense effort is clear from the current  
| release. If we ignore minor hick-ups, werewolf is one of the best releases 
| from Fedora. With this release Fedora is returning to my workstation as 
| distribution of choice, after a long time.    


Fedora 8 Review on DELL D620.

,----[ Quote ]
| I have 2 Pentium D PC's running FC7 and DELL D620 Laptop running Ubuntu in 
| dual boot. 
| I'm so satisfied with the configuration and performance of FC7 that as soon 
| as I heard FC8 was available I went ahead and tried to blast away Ubuntu from 
| my laptop and replace it with FC8.  


A Java Developer's Review of Fedora 8

,----[ Quote ]
| I just finished installing Fedora 8. One new feature that really caught my 
| eye is that it includes an unencumbered version of Java, based on OpenJDk, 
| called IcedTea. In addition to IcedTea, Fedora 8 includes a lot of Java 
| software out of the box including Eclipse, Maven, ANT, Tomcat 5, and Jetty, 
| among others.    



What's New in Fedora 8?

,----[ Quote ]
| Spins are Fedora Live CDs that are created to serve a certain number of 
| people. It does so by having the applications that those people would need, 
| in other words, it saves them the time to install these software.   
| There are three new spins shipped with Fedora 8: Games; Developer; and 
| Electronic Lab.  


Red Hat's Fedora 8 hope: An all-purpose Linux foundation

,----[ Quote ]
| The ability to "re-spin" Fedora is attracting some interest. Among the 
| Fedora-based variations that will be available are one for gaming, one for 
| designing microprocessors, and one for programmers.  


An old hat with new tricks: Fedora 8 officially released

,----[ Quote ]
| I've been experimenting with Fedora 8 test 3, and I like what I see. This is 
| a nice release with a pretty sweet assortment of features that you won't find 
| anywhere else. Fedora still manages to differentiate itself and rise above 
| many other contenders by delivering early access to new technologies.   


A peek at Red Hat's Fedora 8 Linux [Screenshots tour]

| version of a product line geared for enthusiasts, programmers, and Linux

| Enterprise Linux.
