Upcoming Fedora 10 Release Has Style and Substance

,----[ Quote ]
| These are good times for Linux users. Ubuntu's 8.10 release recently went
| live, Fedora's 10 release is coming up in mere weeks, and openSUSE will
| finalize its 11.1 offering in December. Even if none of these distributions
| are your first choice for daily use, they are popular and are frequently
| worth checking out on liveCD, even if you plan to continue using your current
| distribution.

Blade Servers vs. Racks compared for price, performance

,----[ Quote ]
| One former client of mine, for example, had a significant number of blade
| servers running Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 (RHEL 4) that were lightly loaded.
| Since the release of RHEL 5, it has been a viable option for them to use a
| single physical machine with a Xen instance for each server (with significant
| savings in hardware purchase costs).

Fedora 10 Prepares For Development Freeze

,----[ Quote ]
| The release date for Fedora 10 (codenamed Cambridge) is less than one month
| away and as a result this Red Hat distribution will go into a development
| freeze beginning Tuesday. The Fedora 10 Beta occurred in late September, but
| over the course of the past month there have been three snapshot releases. In
| the third and final snapshot that was released this past week there are new
| improvements to this popular Linux distribution along with a new desktop
| background and better integrated version of Plymouth to greet its users. We
| have also recorded a new video showing the enhanced start-up process via
| kernel-based mode-setting.

23,000 Linux PCs forge education revolution in Philippines

,----[ Quote ]
| Providing high school students with PCs is seen as a first step to preparing
| them for a technology-literate future, but in the Philippines many schools
| cannot afford to provide computing facilities so after a successful
| deployment of 13,000 Fedora Linux systems from a government grant, plans are
| underway to roll out another 10,000 based on Ubuntu.

Omega 10 Desktop Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| The Red Hat community engineer behind the Fedora Games and Fedora Xfce media
| spins, Rahul Sundaram, had announced the release of Omega 10 Beta this past
| weekend. Omega is a desktop/mobile Linux distribution that is based upon
| Fedora but includes packages from the Livna RPM repository. The Omega 10 Beta
| release is roughly equivalent to the Fedora 10 Beta to be released tomorrow,
| but integrates multimedia support not found in Fedora along with delivering
| other added functionality.
