"The Fedora Audio spin will be targeted at both enthusiasts and professionals alike. We are also see the Live CD's for new users who have always wanted to try out Linux Audio but weren't sure where to start. Hopefully the live CD can also serve as a backup portable studio with all the packages you need!"

GNOME 3.4: Are We There Yet?

Jason Brooks posted[1]:

At Linux.com, Joe Brockmeier reviews GNOME 3.4 running on Fedora 17 alpha:

"So the big question for GNOME 3.4 is... are we there yet? Different people will define 'there' differently, but I define 'there' as 'a welcome desktop environment for users who liked and used GNOME 2.x.'

"I think the answer is yes, but only with a bit of tweaking. If choosing a desktop for myself, I'd probably opt for the Cinnamon fork of GNOME 3.x for now. But I wouldn't be hesitant to put GNOME 3.4 on a desktop for a friend or family member at this point."

Fedora 18 to use tmpfs by default

Jason Brooks posted[1]:

"A feature proposal by Lennart Poettering and Kay Sievers to mount the /tmp directory using tmpfs by default in Fedora 18 was recently accepted by the Fedora Engineering Steering Committee (FESCo). This means that the next version of Fedora will store the temporary directory in RAM rather than on a partition on the disk. This makes the system gain some performance and improves the lifetime of solid state drives (SSDs) as it limits writes to the disk."
