Fedora Core 6 Screenshots

Filed under
Linux

Tuesday night Jesse Keating announced that Fedora Core 6 would not ship this week as many had hoped for, but rather will launch on Tuesday, October 24. This release was pushed back twice this week due to last minute bugs. However, with Rawhide being complete, all that is left is last minute testing and then spinning the ISOs and sending them off to the mirrors. For those dieing to see what Fedora Core 6 final shall look like, we have built it from Rawhide on October 18, which should be the final packages for this build.

New in FC6 from Fedora Core 5 is a multitude of improvements, and is certainly a release for the open-source community to be proud of. If you're opposed to Microsoft Vista's licensing agreements or you're finally ready to make the jump to GNU/Linux, Fedora Core 6 is definitely worth checking out. Fedora 6 ships with GNOME 2.16 and features several improvements such as a yum applet, Anaconda installation from yum repositories, and many more terrific features. Check it out over at Phoronix.

Fedora Core 6 Screenshots.

You can't judge a book by its cover.

No, you can't tell by looking at some screenshots. You must test to conclude if it's ready for release or not. And mate, you're still not skilled enough to tell the difference.

re: Screenshots

I'm still amazed that people waste the time and bandwidth to show each and every screen of whatever flavor of Linux they're hawking today.

As you say - what does a screenshot tell you?

It's as boring as being invited over to the neighbors to see their "exciting" photo essay (i.e. slideshow) of their latest trip to Wal-Marts, and about as informative.

Not once (never!) have I decided to install & test (or the flip side - ignore) a distro/app/etc. because of the screenshots.

Ubuntu: Mir running on Fedora and Ubuntu 17.10 Guidance

  • Mir running on Fedora
    Last week we released Mir 0.28 and this week we settled down to tidy up a few bugs fixes and feature requests that didn’t make the release. I’ve started collecting these for a Mir 0.28.1 release to come in the next few weeks. The most interesting of these comes from conversations at the Ubuntu Rally: there were several requests from community members around getting Mir working (or even building!) on other distributions.
  • Ubuntu Developer Gets Mir Running On Fedora
    Lead Mir developer Alan Griffiths has spent the time getting the Mir display server running on Fedora. This is part of a broader feature request of getting Mir running on more Linux distributions than just Ubuntu. The changes to get Mir running on at least Fedora should be merged for the upcoming Mir 0.28.1 point release. Mir 0.28.1 will also incorporate other bug fixes.
