Ever wanted to run Fedora Core Linux as a Live CD? Well now you can. Though Red Hat's sponsored community distribution, Fedora Core, includes a lot of applications and has an easy-to-use installer, it has long been missing a critical piece, namely a Live CD.
You walk into the room. It’s cool and quiet. You see thirty new workstations giving great service. Your software costs were only some download and CD burn time and forty minutes for installation.

If you do, however, you might miss out on a wealth of software available that could help you get more out of your computer.
