Good Things on the Way

,----[ Quote ]
| - Fedora 12: Just five days after openSuSE, 
| the final release of Fedora 12. In addition 
| to the usual progress to the latest Linux 
| kernel, Gnome and such, there is new and 
| better video support, an ingenious 
| improvement in Bluetooth support (good news 
| for me, as I use mice and printers this 
| way), and much, much more.

| Fedora
| Fedora is Red Hat's community Linux 
| distribution and it's a winner. That said, 
| it's a cutting edge distribution. You'll 
| find new features in the forthcoming Fedora 
| 12, like kernel memory management via KSM 
| KSM (kernel samepage merging) that are may 
| be a little too bleeding edge for some 
| users. I like Fedora, but its target 
| audience is Linux experts, not Linux 
| newcomers.



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)
