| The Fedora Project has released a beta version of its community-sponsored, 
| Red Hat-based Linux distribution, with the final due in May. The Fedora 11 
| beta release offers faster, 20-second bootups, improved package management, 
| new virtualization features, and support for cross-compiling Windows 
| applications, says the open-source project.

| Fedora project developers also have added security for virtualized containers 
| running on the OS by extending Fedora's security model, SELinux, Frields 
| said. A new extension called Svirt provides access control for virtual 
| guests, locking what processes the guests have access to, he said.

| brand new wallpaper featuring the famous Greek Acropolis, to be in tone with 
| Fedora 11's codename, Leonidas. Moreover, a Clearlooks-based theme is in 
| testings (see the first screenshot below). Without futher ado, we will let

Testing the Fedora 11 Installation Guide

,----[ Quote ]
| Every release, the dedicated volunteers in the Documentation team produce the 
| Fedora Installation Guide, an exhaustive and detailed guide to installing 
| Fedora. For Fedora 11, they have asked us in the QA team to 
| co-ordinate ‘testing’ of the Installation Guide. By doing installations 
| following the instructions in the Installation Guide, we can find issues in 
| both the Guide and the installation process itself, and thus improve both.

| If anyone out there persists in believing that Linux isn't ready for serious
| prime time, NYSE Euronext's dependence on Red Hat should finally lay that
| silly notion to rest. As announced, the New York Stock Exchange Euronext
| dumped its proprietary UNIX heritage (AIX, HP UX, Solaris) for the freedom,
| flexibility, and performance of Linux.

| "We favor Linux for what we do. We don't want to be beholden to any one
| [hardware or software] supplier, even if it is very good. We want the freedom
