A Look Through Fedora 16 Alpha

Filed under
Linux

Fedora 16 Alpha was released earlier this week while the final release is not due until early November. If you have not yet tried out this latest Fedora development release, in this Phoronix article is a brief look through the Red Hat sponsored Linux distribution.

As the default desktop, Fedora 16 will be using GNOME 3.2. Right now an early development snapshot of GNOME 3.2 (the GNOME 3.1 series) is being used. It is more polished and stable than GNOME 3.0, plus there are other improvements to this desktop environment. GNOME 3.2 will be officially released in September. For those not fond of the GNOME desktop, there is also KDE Software Compilation 4.7, Xfce 4.8, and the Sugar 0.94 environments.
