Fedora 13 gives off plain vibe, but offers power and stability under the hood

,----[ Quote ]
| The differences between Linux distributions 
| these days are often so minute, there seems 
| little reason to even review them anymore.
| After all, one distro running GNOME 2.30 or 
| KDE 4.4 is going to look very much like any 
| other distro running the same interfaces. The 
| interfaces will be nearly identical -- all 
| that remains different are underlying 
| administration tools and a few variant 
| choices on the apps that are included.
| That was the conundrum recently faced when 
| turning to review the latest beta of Fedora 
| 13: it looked so much like other GNOME 2.30-
| interfaced distros I have seen lately, the 
| initial thought was "what's the diff?"
| Such an attitude is, for the most part, not 
| fair to the developers of the Fedora Project, 
| who have put together a darn fine 
| distribution that reads as rock-solid and 
| very user-friendly.

| "The Fedora Project looks to encourage
| future generations to be more than just
| consumers of free and open source software,
| but to participate in the culture of
| contribution which helps create it," said
| Paul Frields, Fedora Project Leader at Red
| Hat. "Through this scholarship program,
| Fedora aims to inspire new contributors to
| continue their work with open source
| throughout their college years and into
| their future careers and personal computing
| experiences."


Fedora 13 set for release in May

| The Fedora Project is reporting version 13
| (code name "Goddard") of the Fedora Linux
| distribution is scheduled for release on
| May 18th of this year. Featuring Gnome
| 2.30, KDE 4.4, and RPM 4.8, Release 13 will
| also use NFS v4 by default, and include
| support for mounting NFS servers over IPv6.
