Publisher's Description

The Fedora Project is an openly-developed project designed by Red Hat, open for general participation, led by a meritocracy, following a set of project objectives. The goal of The Fedora Project is to work with the Linux community to build a complete, general purpose operating system exclusively from open source software. Development will be done in a public forum. The project will produce time-based releases of Fedora Core about 2-3 times a year, with a public release schedule. The Red Hat engineering team will continue to participate in building Fedora Core and will invite and encourage more outside participation than in past releases. By using this more open process, we hope to provide an operating system more in line with the ideals of free software and more appealing to the open source community.

This is a link to the 386 version. Use Fedora Torrent Server instead to get what you want . https://torrents.fedoraproject.org/

Fedora itself is a nice operating system but the new version of the anaconda installer is terrible. Don't even think about installing Fedora in a complex partitioning system.

This is an excellent distro - but only if you have a very uncomplicated partitioning setup. I defy anybody to tell me how you could setup a RAID5 for examp[le - especially with other OS's on the disks. I need to take an upgrae path form FC17-Fedora18 (and maybe the Alphia if I can). This was very easy in Fedora 17. So because of he new Anaconda installer it gets a 3 (but for me a 0)

I love Fedora with LXDE but it's sad they don't bundle VLC.

Works like a charm on my 2 yr. old laptop, no issues whatsoever. Did the job where Ubuntu could not, esp. with wireless drivers. A great distro!

the finest distro until the moment , iv been using it since it came out , tried it with the applications that i usually use on ubuntu 9.04 , and it shocked me with the stability , its fast and stable , never crashed " i play alot with the system settings and configurations" .

gnome kde , kde gome , its a matter of taste , you can do everything using both but in different ways and shortcuts.

Finally, full EFI support for AMD64 platforms. There's still no Linux distribution that can hold a candle to Mac OS X. Mac OS X has better graphics than every Linux distribution and is much more stable. It is harder to crash Mac OS X than any other operating system.

After I installed the Nvidia driver for F11Preview via Yumming it, it eventually booted up after I forced my PC to shut off. I like KDE 4.2.2 a lot, but I also like Gnome 2.26, yet I got the wireless icon on the taskbar on both. Yeah, it's stable. I have 2.6.29.3 kernel. EXT4 is about time! Needs extents badly. I used EXT4 in Fedora 10 as well.

I'm actually giving F11 Preview a 9.5, because I had to use the basic video driver for Geforce 8800 GTX like in OpenSuse 11.1. OpenSuse 11 and Fedora 10 didn't have these normal install problems. I am fair where Wine isn't avaliable, because it puts Red Hat's butt in the court room vs. Microsoft. They could finally add Linux unified kernel though! I wish KDE or Gnome made a desktop screen recording application into x264. Neither Fedora and OpenSuse package install DVD with Mediacoder!

I've always appreciated Fedora for its broad hardware compatibility, especially compared to the ubuntu family. And this Fedora 10 preview is very stable.

However, like DudeBoyz, unless you're constantly updating your system, OpenSUSE (or SLED) is likely a better (RPM) option than Fedora for most users. At the least, you'll get the best graphics -- better than Mac IMO -- a system that plays well with Windows, and extreme stability.

KDE is buggier than gnome (though its much more configurable). This distro is not as good as ubuntu.

Pretty decent product, but I think I would take SUSE Linux over this for business and Mandriva Linux for home. Both of those apps are updated pretty frequently and do a better job of keeping up with the small business / consumer market.

Not bad, but nothing special either, imo. In fact, the dumbed down config stands in the way of making the environment fit the preferences of the users. I do not think it holds up well against the competition.
