Fedora 14 Theme: concepts feedback

,----[ Quote ]
| Design team has kicked off concepts for 
| Laughling release theme quoted: Something 
| that can illustrate the emergence concept, 
| like multiple objects combined to create a 
| new one (more complex).


Helping others get Fedora

,----[ Quote ]
| When I find an outstanding distro, such as 
| Fedora, I prefer to buy the media from an 
| on-line vendor as a way of showing my 
| support. Most of the time the money goes 
| directly to the vendor, however, I happened 
| upon the Sponsored Media Program today and 
| found a vendor who participates in this 
| program.


IT Infrastructure: Red Hat's Fedora Linux: 13 Releases of Cutting-Edge Open Source


Fedora 13 - Xfce spin vs. LXDE spin

,----[ Quote ]
| The Fedora 13 Xfce spin has more 
| applications than the LXDE spin. So far the 
| machine crashed on the screensaver (in Xfce, 
| not in LXDE, and the same thing has been 
| happening with Ubuntu Lucid if I don't 
| choose blanking the screen instead of a 
| random screensaver).



I am Fedora

,----[ Quote ]
| Back in 1999, my employer, Pittsburgh
| Supercomputing Center put a Red Hat Linux
| system running an Alpha processor on my desk.
| From there I was supposed to do write
| parallel code for a Red Hat Linux beowulf
| cluster. It was tricky without some basic
| desktop tools.


Fedora 13 Goddard. Bah. Meh. Hmm? Ok.

,----[ Quote ]
| To sum it up, I think Fedora 13 is much better
| than its predecessors, but still cannot compete
| with the likes of Mint, Ubuntu, Mandriva, and
| associated folks, which provide the common
| users with more tools and more intuitive tools
| to enjoy their desktop. Fedora makes sense for
| veterans, developers, tech junkies, and
| explorers, who want to dabble in what will and
| could become the mainstream in 3-4 years.


Why Iâm using Fedora 13 now

,----[ Quote ]
| In short, Iâm not running the latest
| versions of applications anymore, because
| Fedora doesnât have a rolling release
| schedule. This used to be a big deal for
| me, now I find that I donât care. The
| repositories are extensive, but of course
| Arch has the AUR which contains almost all
| open software known to manâbut Iâm not
| running anything exotic anymore.


Fedora 13 review

,----[ Quote ]
| Fedora 13 is the latest update to the
| Redhat-sponsored, RPM-based Linux
| distribution. It has long held a
| reputation of being a testbed for features
| that will eventually make it into Redhat
| Enterprise Linux, and, therefore, less
| stable than other desktop-oriented
| distributions. And I think thatâs one
| reason why Fedora has features that youâll
| not find on other desktop-focused
| distributions.


Fedora 13 Boasts Many Leading-Edge Enhancements

,----[ Quote ]
| Red Hat's Fedora 13 open-source software can
| serve in a full gamut of Linux roles, as long
| as users are prepared to upgrade their
| systems about once a year.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.10 (GNU/Linux)
