Reviews: First look at Fedora 12

,----[ Quote ]
| After spending several days with Fedora, I 
| find that I'm happy with this release. 



Intel Linux Graphics Shine With Fedora 12

| Lastly, we have the results from Urban
| Terror. Fedora 12 was the clear winner here
| where it offered much better performance
| than 10 and 11. In fact, the frame-rate for
| Urban Terror in Fedora 12 was doubled of
| where it was at in Fedora 11.


Fedora 13 May Support Btrfs System Rollbacks

,----[ Quote ]
| Fedora 12 was just released this week, but
| features for Fedora 13 have been in
| planning long before this release made it
| out the door. In fact, it was last month
| that we began talking about features for
| Fedora 13. One of the features though that
| has just been proposed for Fedora 13 is
| rather interesting and that is system
| rollback support via Btrfs file-system
| snapshots.


Saving the "Best" for Last - Fedora 12 (Constantine)

,----[ Quote ]
| So, of the four "major" distributions over
| the past month (Ubuntu 9.10, Mandriva 2010,
| openSuSE 11.2 and Fedora 12), the only one
| that didn't crash, hang or otherwise
| misbehave on at least one of my
| laptop/netbook/nettop systems was Fedora.
| Of course, there is plenty more fun to come
| yet. New releases of Linux Mint and
| SimplyMEPIS are already on the horizon, and
| I don't think it will be long before there
| is another PCLinuxOS release, too. The fun
| never stops in the Linux world!


Fedora 12 rolls out impressive features

,----[ Quote ]
| Although last in this line of releases,
| Fedora is perhaps the most interesting of
| the releases. While it is the community
| version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Fedora
| is not nearly as conservative and prides
| itself on its just-out-of-beta features.
| This time around Fedora introduces features
| such as Bluetooth audio support, multi-
| touch input for tablet PCs, better package
| management and broader network support.
| On the desktop Fedora includes Empathy, a
| new generation of instant messenger that
| supports chat, video and audio on most
| popular IM platforms including AIM, Yahoo,
| Google Talk, Jabber, Live (MSN) and
| MySpace. Using Empathy users can share
| their desktop with friends and use a webcam
| to create audio and video chats.

Upgrade from Fedora11 to Fedora12 Constantine


Fedora 12 - it's a horse, not a camel

,----[ Quote ]
| On the desktop, Fedora 12 offers the latest
| versions of GNOME and KDE, complete with
| all the usual updates to the standard GNOME
| and KDE applications. On the GNOME side
| that means the new Empathy IM client and
| the slightly revamped, somewhat more
| polished theme we mentioned in our review
| of the Fedora 12 beta release.


Fedora, Still Pushing The Envelope

,----[ Quote ]
| This new release certainly feels very solid
| and is definitely worth the upgrade, today.
| Due to Fedoraâs stance on free software,
| users might not get the same âout of the
| boxâ experience that other distributions
| might offer. Even so, is that a good thing
| or a bad thing? Either way, using only free
| software certainly helps to make Fedora
| more stable and itâs great for users who
| donât need proprietary software.
| That aside, Fedora 12 âConstantineâ
| continues the tradition of pushing the
| envelope of free software and could just
| be, the very best Linux distribution of
| 2009.

Fedora 12 Installation and Post Installation Guide

,----[ Quote ]
| Fedora 12, codenamed Constantine, is
| released! Just for the info, Fedora is an
| RPM based Linux Distribution, an Operating
| System in other words, developed by the
| community supported Fedora Project and
| sponsored by Red Hat. Fedora contains only
| free and Open Source software. Some of
| Fedora's 12 new features are Gnome 2.28,
| KDE 4.3, better web cam support!, and many
| others. Finally presto is enabled by
| default which means smaller updates to be
| downloaded and faster updates also!

New Fedora Spins site with Fedora 12

| It's an orientation that Frields sees as
| central to the GNU/Linux distribution's
| rapid growth over the last five years, as
| well as the focus in the new Fedora 12
| release.


Fedora 12 Review and Commentary

,----[ Quote ]
| There is a great third party product for
| Fedora called Easy Life that you can
| download that installs and configures a
| ton of settings by default for you (ubuntu
| users may compare it to the deceased
| automatix).
| It does the following:
|     * Sets "sudo" command up for your
|     regular user;
|     * Configures RPMFusion repository for
|     extra and non-free software;
|     * Installs Flash Player plugin;
|     * Installs all kinds of multimedia
|     Codecs (h264,divx,xvid,mp3 etc);
|     * Installs additional fonts;
|     * Installs Skype;
|     * Installs Sun Java and Sun Java
|     Plugin for Firefox;
|     * Integrates Sun Java with system-
|     switch-java;
|     * Installs Google apps (Picasa,
|     Desktop);
|     * And many others...

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
