[News] Red Hat Did Great with Fedora 10 -- All Works Well

Hash: SHA1

Fedora 10: Living on the edge

,----[ Quote ]
| All my hardware worked out of the box, although I don't have any "exotic" 
| devices (ATI 3650 video card, Sound Blaster X-FI and onboard ethernet 
| controller). Pulse audio gave me no problems. A nice addition is LXDE Desktop 
| (Lightweight X11 Desktop Environment), as it uses less system resources than 
| Gnome or KDE and is ideal for older computers and netbooks.    


There are too many polished and powerful distros out there right now. No wonder
Microsoft behaves like SCO (suing TomTom)... Microsoft know what's coming. It
even dumps free (gratis) Windows on sub-notebooks.


Linux Fedora KDE 10: First Look

,----[ Quote ]
| As you have seen, I have only graced the surface of Fedora 10.  It really it
| is not that hard to use since the interface is very Windows-like.  If you
| want to try it in your machine, get the Live CD first so you can check it out
| without touching your actual system setup.


Thunderbird 3 Coming To Fedora 11

| Fedora 11 is reaching an impressive number of accepted features. Beyond
| introducing Intel and NVIDIA kernel mode-setting, Nouveau becoming the
| default NVIDIA driver, and a new volume control interface, there will be a
| plethora of package updates. Fedora 11 will have available Xfce 4.6, GNOME
| 2.26, and KDE 4.2 for the desktops.


Fedora 11 Will Have An Incredible Number Of New Features

,----[ Quote ]
| Fedora 10, an amazing Fedora release in its own right, had 28 approved
| features. Fedora 9 had 30 and Fedora 8 had 21.
| As of writing this Fedora 11 has 51 which have already been approved, plus
| another 9 waiting to be approved any day now. That means in the end there
| should be ~60 approved features which make it into Fedora 11! This doesn’t
| even count the work going into external things such as overhauling the
| documentation or the community work going into the Moksha project.


Fedora 10 regains Linux fans

,----[ Quote ]
| I know personally, I'm been very impressed by Fedora 10. This edition of
| Fedora is the first one in years to have won a long-term place on my Linux
| desktop line-up in my office/lab. While I have over two-dozen computers that
| I use for evaluations, that still isn't enough. So I only keep operating
| systems around that I think are either truly useful or matter to many users.
| Fedora makes it on both accounts.
| I suspect too that Red Hat, which is re-entering the Linux desktop market,
| has been working hard to improve Fedora as a desktop system for the last few
| months. From where I sit, it's certainly Red Hat's best desktop in years.


Red Hat Fedora Linux 10 nears 1 million user mark

,----[ Quote ]
| When combined with other actively used Fedora distributions as of Feb 16,
| 2009, Fedora's counting method reports 12,188,598 Fedora Linux installations
| across Fedora 7,8,9 and 10 releases.


Fedora Users Gather In Berlin for LinuxTag And Fedora 11 Development

,----[ Quote ]
| The Fedora Project, a Red Hat (NYSE: RHT) sponsored and community-supported
| open source collaboration project, announced today that the Fedora Project
| will host the Fedora Users and Developers Conference (FUDCon) between June
| 26-28, 2009 in Berlin, Germany. FUDCon is a periodically held, community
| event where the Fedora community meets to discuss and collaborate on cutting
| edge technology features that eventually become part of the next release of
| the Fedora platform.


Red Hat returns to the Linux desktop

,----[ Quote ]
| Does this mean that Red Hat will be getting back into the Linux desktop
| business? That's the question I posed to Red Hat CTO Brian Stevens, in a
| phone call after the Red Hat/KVM press conference, and he told me that, "Yes.
| Red Hat will indeed be pushing the Linux desktop again."


Nouveau Becomes The Default Driver In Fedora 11

,----[ Quote ]
| Among a horde of other features to be introduced with Fedora 11 (a.k.a.
| Leonidas), the Nouveau driver will become the default NVIDIA driver on this
| Red Hat distribution.


Video: FUDCon F11

,----[ Quote ]
| In January, a whole slew of Red Hat engineers and Fedora Project volunteers
| got together at the Fedora Users and Developers Conference (FUDCon) to
| collaborate on features for Fedora 11, setting team objectives, and other
| initiatives. Contributors including QA experts, marketing gurus, community
| managers, and our friends from the One Laptop Per Child project all came
| together. They presented new ideas at technical talks, worked on tasks, and
| most of all had fun in the brilliant, vibrant atmosphere that defines Fedora.
| If you weren’t able to make it, here’s a chance for you to see what you
| missed. Get a taste for how FUDCon works and the excitement it generates for
| everyone in the community.
