GNOME Online Desktop: Touching the Face of GOD

,----[ Quote ]
| Currently in alpha release, GOD is best tested in a distribution that uses 
| GNOME 2.20, such as Fedora 8. In Fedora 8, it requires three packages: 
| online-desktop, mugshot, and bigboard (the exact names may vary with your 
| distribution). If these packages are unavailable in your distro, you can use 
| the instructions at live.gnome.org to compile the programs for yourself.

Red Hat Offers Global Desktop for Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| With Red Hat launching a new Linux-based desktop operating system, 
| called Global Desktop for Linux, one analyst is saying the software 
| could be "huge" for Linux, particularly in developing countries that 
| haven't gone the Microsoft Windows route. Red Hat's Global Desktop 
| for Linux is a commercial spinoff of the One Laptop Per Child project.


Tour of GNOME Online Desktop

| Here’s a tour of the pre-alpha demo release of GNOME Online Desktop included 
| in Fedora 8. 


GNOME Online Desktop: "We will have to include Windows"

,----[ Quote ]
| But to me when I use a desktop today I feel like there are major negatives to 
| it - there are all kinds of maintenance and backups to worry about. Just 
| cleaning up the desktop background, cause it's cluttered full of junk to not 
| having calendar notifications, having recent documents be the wrong documents 
| and not the online documents that I'm actually using.    


Open Source Developers calling for the next desktop revolution

,----[ Quote ]
| Future GNOME releases might have seamless integration with online services 
| and store their configuration on the web - Novell and parts of the community 
| seem to agree with Red Hats proposal  


Desktop On Demand - New WebOS Launches

,----[ Quote ]
| The product is being built by a company called Defuturo, which says
| that the core of DOD is the Linux Gnome desktop environment "and the
| growing myriad of applications constantly being developed for it." So
| it is using an open source platform and building a virtual desktop
| service on top of that. DOD aims to extend rather than replace a
| local computer, but I think they need to work on their messaging
| on how exactly they'll do this.

Fedora 8 Test Drive

| I’m very happy with this Fedora release and the new Gnome is very promising 
| and it’s extremely easy to use without separating the user from going deep 
| into the system if he likes to. It has multiple “spins” (flavors) and you can 
| create your own custom spin with a nice tool. for me it’s very stable till 
| now and it has solved my DVD burner I/O problems completely and it saved 
| power “GREATLY”. it stays running on my 12-Cell battery for 5:30 hours!  
| Thanks for “powertop” from Intel for its utility and great thanks for the 
| tickless kernel.       


Fedora 8 - a video tour

,----[ Quote ]
| These three short videos -- all less than 8 minutes long -- give you an idea 
| of Fedora 8's "look and feel" during the installation and setup process, and 
| show you what software is installed by default. The third video shows you how 
| to install and -- just as important -- uninstall software in Fedora 8.   


Fedora/Linux for Noobs

,----[ Quote ]
| 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]
