Fedora 18 part one

Filed under
Linux

Yesterday, I was wondering if there shouldn’t be a new Fedora out by now and if it would fix a bunch of my current GNOME 3 annoyances. So I checked, and lo and behold, the final release date was yesterday! Excellent.

Let’s do some completely unscientific scoring this time around. In part one, it’s bound to get ugly because you always run into the negatives first when doing an upgrade.

First challenge was finding the torrent links for the full DVD. Apparently the DVD is now a well-hidden option, and the torrent even more so – I had to google for it, I couldn’t find any links on the download site. -1 and -1. I appreciate that there is a small CD with a live installer and everything, but I have to upgrade 3 computers in total so I prefer to download once as much as I can – although it’s likely all of them will need to upgrade gazillions of packages soon after.
