Template for Final Talking Points Selected

These are the Talking Points for the Fedora 19 release. For information on how these talking points were chosen, see Talking Points SOP. They are intended to help Ambassadors quickly present an overview of highlighted features when talking about the release.

The talking points are based in part on the features for this release. Any Fedora community member can introduce a feature, using our feature process.

Spins

Spins are alternate versions of Fedora, tailored for various uses by community members.

Spins are alternate versions of Fedora. In addition to various desktop environments for Fedora, spins are also available as tailored environments for various types of users via hand-picked application sets or customizations.

(OLD EXAMPLE FOLLOWS - need to replace with what is submitted for F19!) Interest-specific Spins include the Design Suite Spin, Games Spin, and Security Spin, among others. Available desktop environments, in addition to the GNOME 3 desktop which is shipped in the default version of Fedora 15, include Xfce, Sugar on a Stick, KDE, and LXDE.
