[News] Fedora Beats the Competition on Sub-notebooks

Hash: SHA1

Ubuntu and Back Again, a Scenic Journey

,----[ Quote ]
| The result really surprised me in the end, but i have to say that Fedora is 
| the best distro i've put on the EEE so far! The perfect tradeoff between 
| speed and beauty ( with KDE 4.1 ), they have really done a fantastic job of 
| making sure that the core elements are provided without losing any 
| performance. I still need to retry Mandriva and openSUSE 11.1 ( not that 
| factory nonsense ) to be fair, but i'm not convinced that they will be able 
| to dethrone Fedora.      


Linpus is Fedora based as well and so is OLPC. Linux is big on sub-notebooks,
even when faced against $5 Windows (yes, just $5).

| The launch of the netbook was also aided by the progression of Linux, 
| allowing vendors to cut out the cost of the operating system as well as 
| customise it to offer a very basic and simple to navigate interface.  



Red Hat Fedora Claims It's the Leader in Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| Red Hat's Fedora community Linux distribution has now tallied its user base,
| and it's a number that on the surface would make it the largest installed
| base of any Linux distribution, with at least 9.5 million users and possibly
| as many as 10.5 million.


Fedora 10, a "Live" solution for One Laptop Per Child.

,----[ Quote ]
| When One Laptop Per Child starts their next Give 1 Get 1 program on November
| 17th, there will be an option to purchase an upgrade that will allow users to
| run a standard Linux desktop based on Fedora 10, on their XO system
| (pronounced "ex - oh"). This special edition of Fedora 10 is an alternative
| for adults who may not find the child focused graphical interface called
| Sugar practical for daily use. With this "Live" release the Fedora Project is
| once again highlighting a fantastic feature unique to modern Linux
| distributions.



23,000 Linux PCs forge education revolution in Philippines

,----[ Quote ]
| Providing high school students with PCs is seen as a first step to preparing
| them for a technology-literate future, but in the Philippines many schools
| cannot afford to provide computing facilities so after a successful
| deployment of 13,000 Fedora Linux systems from a government grant, plans are
| underway to roll out another 10,000 based on Ubuntu.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
