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.

Distro Development: Rescatux and Bodhi

  • Rescatux 0.40 beta 9 released
    Many code in the grub side and in the windows registry side has been rewritten so that these new features could be rewritten. As a consequence it will be easier to maintain Rescapp. Finally the chntpw based options which modify the Windows registry now perform a backup of the Windows registry files in the unlikely case you want to undo some of the changes that Rescapp performs. I guess that in the future there will be a feature to be able to restore such backups from Rescapp itself, but, let’s focus on releasing an stable release. It’s been a while since the last one. UEFI feedback is still welcome. Specially if the Debian installation disks work for you but not the Rescatux ones.
  • Bodhi 4.0.0 Updates and July Donation Totals
    Late last month I posted a first alpha look at Bodhi 4.0.0. Work since then has been coming along slowly due to a few unpredictable issues and my own work schedule outside of Bodhi being hectic over the summer. Bodhi 4.0.0 will be happening, but likely not with a stable release until September. I am traveling again this weekend, but am hoping to get out a full alpha release with 32bit and non-PAE discs next week.
