Fedora 12 Beta Roundup

Lots of people have downloaded, installed and written up their experiences with the just-released Fedora 12 Beta. Collected here are some of the Fedora Planet blog posts on the topic.

Adam Williamson[1], Sandro Mathys[2], Paul W. Frields[3] and Andrew Vermilya Jamison[4] all installed the Beta and posted their initial thoughts.

Nicu Buceli noted[5] F12's better webcam support and threw[6] a Windows 7 party to celebrate. And if you want your menu icons back, Nicu can tell[7] you how to do that too.

Nicu also reviewed[8] the new GNOME Shell, as did Jeff Ollie[9].

Matt Domsch mentioned[10] that Fedora 12 is now self-hosting. "What does this mean? Simply put, it means that you can use a copy of Fedora 12 to rebuild, from source, all of Fedora 12 again."

Máirín Duffy displayed[11] the work so far in developing a new desktop wallpaper background image.

And finally, some news from off-planet. Ars Technica took a look[12] at the Fedora 12 Beta release.
