Latest Fedora News

I just received the latest Red Hat email newsletter, which contained this news on Fedora:

"Fedora, the community-supported Linux distribution project sponsored by Red Hat, has been making great progress as of late. Fedora Core 2, Test 2 is expected to be released in early April and the finished Fedora Core 2 distribution should be available in May. FC2 is the industry's first Linux distribution based on the Linux 2.6 kernel, and supports 32-bit x86 and 64-bit x86-84 systems. It also includes Security Enhanced Linux (SELinux) technology, which was co- developed with the U.S. Government's NSA. With Gnome 2.5, KDE 3.2, and OpenOffice.org 1.1, FC2 is the ideal Linux playground for technology enthusiasts and open source developers."

Soon the only Linux box I will have in my house is a Pentium 90 (with a non-bootable dual-speed CD-ROM) running Debian. I'll report on how I set it up in a future blog entry.
