Fedora project goodies [Update]

,----[ Quote ]
| Two minor issues of the fedoraproject web pages and services have been fixed 
| recently: the repoview is back again, and the build service search is now 
| case-insensitive. In the meantime the package database shapes up to a central 
| place for all package related tasks.   



Fedora/Linux for Noobs

| The desktop in Fedora 7 (Gnome) is very pleasing to look at. With clean lines 
| and soft colors it has a Mac-like appeal with the taskbars of Windows. You 
| can easily add items to the taskbars (panels), move them around, make them 
| transparent, and even remove them if wanted. Icons are clear and resizable so 
| you’re not stuck with dinky XP icons. I have modified my desktop somewhat for 
| productivity. One of the beauties of Linux is the degree of customization 
| available to make your workspace the way you want it.      


Review of Fedora 8 (by Simon G. Hildenbrand)

,----[ Quote ]
| Overall, I truly believe that Fedora 8 is by far the best Fedora release to 
| date (and I've tried every one of them). From the look and feel of the 
| system, to the out-of-the-box configuration during installation, I couldn't 
| be happier with a cutting edge release.   
| As I mentioned before, the biggest aspects of a successful distribution for 
| me are suspend/hibernate, correct screen resolution and the the ability to 
| change the screen resolution in a GUI if it didn't configure it correctly the 
| first time, system stability, and overall look and feel of a distribution. 
| For me, Fedora 8 has excelled in all categories when I evaluate and review a 
| system and I hope that Fedora continues to release versions that are put  
| together as good as Fedora 8 has been.     


Community Welcomes Fedora 8 With Strong Download Numbers

,----[ Quote ]
| Fedora 8 offers both GNOME and KDE-based Live CDs and a general-purpose 
| installable DVD for workstations and servers. It also includes improved Live 
| USB support, making it possible to install, boot and run the entire 
| distribution off of a USB key without touching the computer's hard disk at 
| all. This enhancement makes Fedora attractive to those who wish to experiment 
| with Linux without risking their data.     


Red Hat's Fedora 8 hope: An all-purpose Linux foundation

,----[ Quote ]
| The ability to "re-spin" Fedora is attracting some interest. Among the 
| Fedora-based variations that will be available are one for gaming, one for 
| designing microprocessors, and one for programmers.  


An old hat with new tricks: Fedora 8 officially released

,----[ Quote ]
| I've been experimenting with Fedora 8 test 3, and I like what I see. This is 
| a nice release with a pretty sweet assortment of features that you won't find 
| anywhere else. Fedora still manages to differentiate itself and rise above 
| many other contenders by delivering early access to new technologies.   


A peek at Red Hat's Fedora 8 Linux [Screenshots tour]

,----[ Quote ]
| Red Hat's Fedora 8 version of Linux is set to debut Thursday, the latest 
| version of a product line geared for enthusiasts, programmers, and Linux 
| users who want to get a taste of what's to come in the supported Red Hat 
| Enterprise Linux.
