Fedora 12 Beta on Thinkpad T500 

,----[ Quote ]
| The laptop arrived yesterday, I 
| immediately removed the 'Windows Vista' 
| off the body of the machine, and booted
| and installed Fedora 12 beta on it. It's 
| working great! I have had absolutely no 
| problem with any piece of hardware 
| interacting with Fedora 12. I couldn't be 
| happier with it.

| Iâm very pleased that Fedora is able to 
| contribute to this effort through our 
| stance on freedom. While we try not to get 
| in the way of users making their own 
| personal choices in software, we are also 
| working hard at making proprietary bits 
| more unnecessary. With every new release 
| of Fedora, you can see the advances that 
| are gained through those efforts.

| Fedora 12 which is scheduled to debut this
| November  has some of the best features
| ever. Like all itâs previous releases,
| Fedora has always included cutting edge
| technologies. In this article we will have
| a look at 9 awesome features that Fedora 12
| has.


Open-Source ATI R600/700 3D Support In Fedora 12

,----[ Quote ]
| Fedora 12 provides "out of the box" support
| for kernel mode-setting with ATI R600/700
| series graphics hardware, but it does not
| provide 3D acceleration by default.
| However, Red Hat's X developers have made
| it very easy to enable this 3D support for
| the ATI Radeon HD 2000, 3000, and 4000
| series hardware by just installing a
| special Mesa package from yum. In this
| article we are taking a quick look at where
| the R600/700 3D support is at in Fedora 12.


REVIEW: Red Hat Fedora 12 Beta Makes Progress on
System Privilege, Virtualization Fronts

,----[ Quote ]
| Fedora, Red Hat's leading-edge Linux-based OS,
| has hit a beta milestone. eWEEK Labs' tests
| show that Fedora 12 will provide the latest and
| greatest versions of popular open-source
| applications, as well as features that
| strengthen not only Fedora but also Linux
| distributions in general. In particular, Fedora
| 12 advances the state of Linux system privilege
| management on multiple fronts and exhibits
| continued progress in virtualization.

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.


Five Linux alternatives to Windows 7

| 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)
