Fedora 17 Beta

Karin Bakis posted[1] a batch of stories covering the Fedora 17 beta release:

"The Fedora Project has announced the release of the first and only beta version of Fedora 17, the final version of which is due for publication on 22 May. The beta implements all major changes in full, including the 'UsrMove' modification to filesystem structure, which will result in all applications and libraries being stored in subdirectories of /usr/." (The H)

The coverage includes articles from The H[2], Linux Today[3], PC World[4], Internet News[5]and DistroWatch[6].

Additional Fedora 17 beta release coverage in German, posted[7] by Henrik Heigl, includes stories from Golem[8], Heise[9], Linux Magazin[10] and Pressebox[11].

Will Fedora End Linux Distro Naming?

Jason Brooks posted[1]:

"Linux distro names started to get 'weird' when Ubuntu arrived on the scenes with Weirdly Wacky African-inspired Animal names. Other distros, notably Fedora have taken a more democratic approach where community members vote on the release name, but that could soon change.

'This cycle, the Board is also asking contributors to let us know if we should continue to have release names for future Fedora releases,' Fedora developer Toshio Kuratomi wrote."

HealthCheck Fedora: Where's the beef?

Jason Brooks posted[1] a lengthy (2,800 word) take on Fedora and its history from The H:

"To the right kind of user, with imagination and adventure to spare, Fedora is a thing of wonder. And for other users there are Fedora spins which give a different set of perspectives for those with specialised tastes and preferences. The value of Fedora to ordinary users is that it doesn't stand still, and each new release brings new possibilities."
