[News] Review of Fedora LiveUSB Creator, Linux-based gPCmini

Fedora 9 tools demystify installation and upgrades

,----[ Quote ]
| The Fedora project has always offered installation options. The best known of 
| these options are the Fedora spins -- roll-your-own install images that 
| emphasize a particular desktop or purpose, such as providing the 
| distribution's complete repository on DVD. With Fedora 9, the project has 
| expanded its traditional emphasis with two new tools: LiveUSB Creator, a 
| Windows application for producing live Fedora flash drives, and PreUpgrade, a 
| wizard to help existing users move from one release to another. Each in its 
| own way helps to clarify part of the process of installing the Fedora 
| operating system.

| Everex's gPC mini is a small, quiet, powerful $500 computer with a hip 
| Linux-based operating system designed for MySpace users and others who 
| appreciate the entertainment value of PCs. With a few simple hardware tweaks, 
| the gPC is sure to delight fun-loving PC users of all ages.

| So, what else did I try? I tried out World of Warcraft on Wine, and that 
| seemed to work, although not being a WoW player, I didn't really have a 
| character to try out. But the high-definition introductory video was 
| spectacular!

Acid Test For Windows: Fedora Sulphur Is Here

| The best part with most GNU/Linux distros is you can try them even without
| touching your hard drive. So, you can try Fedora 9 Live CD to have a look at
| the offering; and then you may go on to install it. Now, what's better? A
| lot.


Fedora 9 - an OS that even the Linux challenged can love

| The new KDE look, dubbed Oxygen, is very slick, some might even say
| beautiful. Fedora is the first major distro to ship with KDE 4 enabled by
| default, but thankfully KDE 4 does support older applications that haven't
| yet been ported. Such apps won't be able to take advantage of the new
| features, but at least you can use them until new versions are released.
| Fedora 9 also marks the first release under Paul Frields, Fedora project
| leader at Red Hat, who took over for longtime Fedora maintainer Max Spivak
| earlier this year. Fedora has also revamped its board slightly making the
| distro a more community-managed affair. The majority of the Fedora board is
| now made up of community elected members.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.6 (GNU/Linux)
