Planet Fedora

In this section, we cover the highlights of Planet Fedora[1] - an aggregation of blogs from Fedora contributors worldwide.

Contributing Writer: Adam Batkin


Greg DeKoenigsberg responded[1] to slashdot[2] to correct what Nicholas Negroponte actually said regarding the Sugar UI and OLPC. "But what we did...was we had Sugar do the power management, we had Sugar do the wireless management -- it became sort of an omelet. The Bios talked directly with Sugar, so Sugar became a bit of a mess. It should have been much cleaner, like the way they offer [it] on a stick now."

Jef Spaleta was excited[3] by the news that all of Launchpad has finally been open sourced by Canonical.

Harish Pillay questioned[4] Microsoft's true motives behind contributing GPL patches to the Linux kernel. Martin Sourada quoted[5] Linus' response to the general feeling of hatred toward Microsoft in the Linux community.

Daniel Walsh explained[6] how the SELinux "unconfined" domain works.

Peter Hutterer added[7] part 5 to the XI2 Recipes series, explaining "grabs" and part 6[8], showing examples dealing with the client pointer.

Steven Moix provided[9] a few tips for natively running Fedora 11 on an Intel Mac.

Jesse Keating described[10] how to tether an iPhone to Fedora over bluetooth, for a truly wires-free internet experience.
