"Fedora 14 is a good distribution. Parts of it may not be for the
inexperienced, such as partitioning disk drives. It may also require
more knowledge and understanding to add multimedia functionality to the
system, but once everything is set up, the user is generally good to go"
"SELinux runs a Firefox in a restricted session that doesn't have access
to rest of the system. That includes the X session. Firefox will run in
a nested X server (Xephyr), and you won't be able to even copy & paste
from or to the Firefox session and other apps. /But/, it also means that
Firefox is totally restricted from reading any other files on your
system and that malicious Web pages or attacks on plugins like Flash are
sandboxed as well."
Author makes the point that the Live CD installation is somewhat
minimalistic and doesn't give a full set of tools for the desktop by default
"Don’t get me wrong, Fedora 14 is a great installation in the Fedora
time line. It builds upon the strengths of Fedora 13. My biggest problem
is in what was left out. It is my belief that ALL Linux distributions
(the exception being the likes of Puppy Linux and other small to tiny
distributions - as well as rescue distributions) should ship with all
the tools necessary to get to work out-of-the-box (on top of the
standard and system tools)."
"It has been an exciting time for me to use Ubuntu for almost 3 years
and it's time to move forward and learn more about Linux by using
Fedora. My decision to use Fedora comes from my passion with GNOME. For
me Fedora is a GNOME-centric distro and i hope that they will continue
using and helping the development of GNOME"
"Fuduntu is a Fedora 14 remix (remaster) designed especially for Asus Eee
(but you can of course use it on other netbooks and any laptop/desktop
computer) and comes with some interesting performance tweaks by default. It
was created by Fewt, the Jupiter (an hardware and power management applet
for netbooks and Laptops) developer"
Hey Marketing Crew:
I've added all the articles that have come to the mailing list tagged
with [in-the-news] to the F14 press archive, which can be seen here:
If you see any more, please continue to send them to the list! A big
thank you to those of you who have been sending the things you see our
way. Also, if you notice anything I've missed, feel free to add it to
the wiki, or ask on the marketing mailing list to have it added.
here another german one about openrespect.org:
I let the interresting middle part translate by babelfish:
Originally the declaration should be carried by several projects
together. This can be inferred anyhow to minutes of the
last meeting of the Fedora executive committee. The Fedora executive
committee appeared surprised that Bacon finally published its own
version of the text despite the original offer to co-operation, and
decided, not to support these. Individual members of the executive
committee saw in the text a transparent attempt, criticism at Canonical,
to the company behind Ubuntu to repel. Also the question, whether the
text falsely equates politeness with respect, was raised.

"One of the determining factors in the popularity of distributions is
the size of their community. That puts Fedora near the top of the list.
Another advantage is the level of quality found throughout the
distribution. Fedora developers contribute not only to Fedora, but also
to upstream projects, and cherish the highest standards of quality
control. Bugs are everywhere in code and Fedora is no exception, but
Fedora developers seem to rise just a bit higher than some other
