"The One Laptop Per Child project has decided to utilize a Linux 2.6.19
OLPC kernel with a Red Hat Fedora Core 6 'run-time environment' for the
first build of its giveaway portable notebook computer, the project's

Bender announced the decision via his weekly progress report."
"Fedora Core 6, codenamed Zod, was released on October 24 for x86,
PowerPC, and AMD64 systems. With a number of improvements over its

Hey All just found this interesting article.
Its a personal opinion has some critique in it which is understandable

Not related to FC-6 but to linux in general.
I'm hoping the article is partly true in the sense that the 'time' is
right to increase market share. Hopefully the masses will leave
Microsoft to force companies to provide support to linux finally.
