Fedora 8 is the latest rpm-based linux distribution managed and operated by Planet Fedora which offers the latest and free opensource linux softwares. Born to be Fedora Core continuous to be a fully established bleeding-edge razor-sharp linux distro for desktop and production servers. Fedora 8, released 7 days ago is now available to many mirror sites from the web.
I am writing this blog entry for me to have my record keeping of having my own Fedora 8 desktop linux diary.
Yes, I am proud that I am currently using Fedora 8 as my current desktop now.
GETTING FEDORA 8
Downloading Fedora 8 is really quite easy using Bittorrent downloader software. I was using bittorrent from Fedora 7 OS when I did the Fedora 8 downloads. Simply to put, I downloaded the Fedora 8 torrent file from here. I did that before I watch my favorite midnight show as I do not have the fastest means of downloading the full DVD ISO in a flash and work on it immediately after the download.
