Fedora 19 Schrodinger's Cat Feature Review

Filed under
Linux

There's much to be said about going with a Distro which provides true innovation and leading edge technology. So much so that today I have chosen to review Red Hat supported Fedora 19, aka Schrodinger's Cat, currently in its beta testing cycle. I didn't waste time downloading it--this is my desktop on the Xfce spin.

Simple, elegant, intuitive. I've been running Fedora 18 for quite a while now and will tell you without equivocation that it has been quite stable and there isn't a single thing I can think of that I miss coming from the Debian derivative world. No, this Red Hat-sponsored Distro has everything but the kitchen sink. Yum running with FastestMirror and AxelGet technology flames through updates and software installs. APT has no particular advantage over yum. And all of the stability nonsense which spews forth from the Debian fiefdom simply doesn't hold water.

  • SMS based Cosmos Browser for the developing countries
    Browsing the internet has different meaning to different people. While to some the web is a source of entertainment, to others it is a valuable and source of learning. Sadly enough, the internet is not widely available and easily affordable everywhere in the globe. Slow network speed is another problem. Developer Stefan Aleksic of ColdSauce tries to find a solution in an SMS (text) based browser for the third world countries which are yet to see the internet as we know it. He has named it the Cosmos Browser. If you ever used elinks on Linux, you know how efficient and low-bandwidth text only browsing can be. Of course, it is not meant for visiting a website for downloading wallpapers, but it is more than sufficient if you want to read some information from the web. Cosmos will work on text and will not need any data plan or WiFi.
