A Few Of Fedora 12's Coming Features

,----[ Quote ]
| Fedora 12's public beta is now out -- what 
| timing, right? -- and while a cursory glance 
| at the feature list as a whole doesn't sport 
| anything revolutionary, there's more than a 
| few goodies worth singling out.


Ars takes a first look under the hood of Fedora 12

,----[ Quote ]
| This week the Fedora community announced the 
| availability of the Fedora 12 beta. We took 
| a look under the hood and explored some of 
| the important technical features, including 
| significant improvements to virtualization 
| and netbook support.
| [...]
| Fedora 12 has a lot of compelling technical | improvements under the hood. The new 
| virtualization features and netbook-related 
| enhancements are particularly impressive and 
| will bring a lot of value to the distro.

Fedora 12 polishes Linux for netbooks

,----[ Quote ]
| The Fedora Project has released the first beta
| of Fedora 12, the next major revision of the
| Fedora Linux line, and though it's still a work
| in progress, there are already some standout
| features, including a much improved power
| management system and support for the Moblin
| project, Intel's effort to make Linux work
| better on netbooks and mobile devices.


Fedora 12 Beta Chock Full of Enhancements

,----[ Quote ]
| Speed is a key issue for all Linux distros, and
| Fedora is taking an interesting approach by
| compiling all of its software for i686 with
| 'special' optimization for Intel Atom. What
| that means is instead of the typical generic
| x86 compilation, all apps could potentially run
| faster. Fedora now does have a specific netbook
| Moblin graphical interface and a Fedora 12
| Moblin Fedora Remix too -- who said Fedora (or
| Red Hat) wasn't interested in netbooks or the
| Linux desktop?

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
