Fedora 8 Proves Popular and Powerful
Many users have already taken Red Hat's latest community Linux for a "spin." (DesktopLinux.com)It took just three days before 54,000 copies of Fedora 8, the Red-Hat-sponsored and community-supported Linux distribution, were up and running. Fedora 8 was released on Nov. 8. Fedora 8 enhancements include the expanded ability for users to create custom spins or appliances, increased security features, a new look and feel, and numerous technical advances.
If you dont like how Fedora 8 looks, works, or whats inside it, you can always create your own custom "spin" of Fedora. A spin is a combination of specific software to meet an individual users requirements. This feature was first introduced in Fedora 7. In Fedora 8, the default system comes with four new spins: Games, Developer, Electronic Lab and KDE, which uses the popular desktop in place of Fedoras default GNOME desktop interface.
