Redhats distribusjon for personlig bruk har lenge vært en av de mest populære Linux-distroene der ute. Jeg snakker selvfølgelig om Fedora, som nå er i gang med betatesting av den niende versjonen i rekken. Oppfølgeren til suksessversjonen Fedora 8. Blant finessene finner man GNOME 2.22, samt en helt ny kjerne. Les endringene…

— GNOME 2.22, with new features like a helpful world time clock, better
file system performance, security improvements, power management at the
login screen, the ability to dynamically configure displays, better
Bluetooth integration, improved podcast support, and many other
— KDE 4.0.2, which includes a brand new desktop and panel with many new
concepts, integrated desktop search, a brand new visual style called
Oxygen, a new multimedia API called Phonon, and a new hardware
integration framework called Solid — all integrated by Fedora’s KDE SIG
— Firefox 3 Beta 5, featuring a native look and feel, desktop
integration, the new Places that replaces bookmarks, and a reworked
address bar
— Support for resizing ext2, ext3 and NTFS partitions during install
— Support for creating and installing to encrypted filesystems
— PackageKit, a cross-distribution package management solution with a
complete yum backend, designed to unify different distributions’
software management with the latest technologies
— Kernel 2.6.25-rc5
