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.

We hate to give you guys bad news, but Canonical's engineers are still working hard these days to port all the goodies from the Ubuntu 16.10 (Yakkety Yak) repositories to Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, which is a long-term supported version, until 2019. These include the Linux 4.8 kernel packages and an updated graphics stack based on a newer X.Org Server version and Mesa 3D Graphics Library. Read more

  • Due to Popular Request, KDE Neon Is Adopting the Calamares Graphical Installer
    KDE Neon maintainer Jonathan Riddell is announcing today the immediate availability of the popular Calamares distribution-independent Linux installer framework on the Developer Unstable Edition of KDE Neon.
