Fedora 18 Set to Redefine the Initial User Experience

Filed under
Linux

One of the reasons why I've personally long enjoyed using Red Hat Linux and now Fedora is because of ease of installation (mostly Anaconda). It's an experience that is set to get even better in the upcoming Fedora 18 'Spherical Cow' release later this year.

One of the major new features that is set for inclusion in Fedora 18 is something called 'Initial Experience.' The basic idea is to enable new users to have a fully functional desktop out of the box in a very seamless manner. This new Initial Experience will also give users a tour of GNOME 3 so they will know what's what.
