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 11 Release Schedule, Along With Five Features

,----[ Quote ]
| Fedora 10 isn't even being released until next week, but five features have 
| already been approved for Fedora 11 and a release schedule has been put in 
| motion. FESCo, or the Fedora Engineering Steering Committee, convened 
| yesterday and approved the Fedora 11 release schedule (though it's likely to 
| change as with all past releases) and approved five of the proposed Fedora 
| features.     
| The five features that are marked to be introduced in Fedora 11 include 
| DeviceKit integration, improved volume controls, Windows cross-compiler  
| support, Presto plug-in integration, and simple support for setting up a 
| multi-seat system.   



Upcoming Fedora 10 Release Has Style and Substance

,----[ Quote ]
| These are good times for Linux users. Ubuntu's 8.10 release recently went
| live, Fedora's 10 release is coming up in mere weeks, and openSUSE will
| finalize its 11.1 offering in December. Even if none of these distributions
| are your first choice for daily use, they are popular and are frequently
| worth checking out on liveCD, even if you plan to continue using your current
| distribution.


Fedora 10 Prepares For Development Freeze

,----[ Quote ]
| The release date for Fedora 10 (codenamed Cambridge) is less than one month
| away and as a result this Red Hat distribution will go into a development
| freeze beginning Tuesday. The Fedora 10 Beta occurred in late September, but
| over the course of the past month there have been three snapshot releases. In
| the third and final snapshot that was released this past week there are new
| improvements to this popular Linux distribution along with a new desktop
| background and better integrated version of Plymouth to greet its users. We
| have also recorded a new video showing the enhanced start-up process via
| kernel-based mode-setting.


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.


Sugar-Coated Fedora LiveCD Gives A Taste of the OLPC XO

,----[ Quote ]
| It's interesting to watch Sugar spread from the OLPC XO laptop and appear in
| several major distributions. Aside from encouraging wider development, it
| opens up a very targeted environment and platform to an audience of users who
| might never consider an OLPC machine.


Cambridge (F-10) Preview Release announcement

,----[ Quote ]
| The Fedora Project is proud to announce the availability of the Fedora
| 10 Preview Release. The Fedora 10 Preview Release is our last
| pre-release offering before we let everyone taste the goods for real.


RPM Fusion is now Available

,----[ Quote ]
| The RPM Fusion team is proud to announce the public availability of
| our repositories that provide software which the Fedora project cannot
| provide as easy-to-install RPM packages.


Fedora Classroom begins November 8

,----[ Quote ]
| Want to learn a new tool within Fedora?  Interested in getting a better hold
| on your skillset?  Want to share with others something you’ve learned?  Let
| us know at the newly formed Fedora Classroom.



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.


Khadi Board visits the GNU/Linux installfest at Technopark today ..

,----[ Quote ]
| We at the installfest were
| lucky enough to have that heady feeling that accompanies a picture of
| FOSS working its magic and people benefitting from it. Today we had a visit
| from Khadi board.
| Khadi board has been using Fedora and Ubuntu to run their office for quiet
| sometime now.


Omega 10 Desktop Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| The Red Hat community engineer behind the Fedora Games and Fedora Xfce media
| spins, Rahul Sundaram, had announced the release of Omega 10 Beta this past
| weekend. Omega is a desktop/mobile Linux distribution that is based upon
| Fedora but includes packages from the Livna RPM repository. The Omega 10 Beta
| release is roughly equivalent to the Fedora 10 Beta to be released tomorrow,
| but integrates multimedia support not found in Fedora along with delivering
| other added functionality.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
