"I’VE spent a few of days in the company of Fedora 9 Preview and my
first impressions are very favourable. Installed into an 8GB Virtualbox
virtual machine, it’s a snappy release with a high degree of consistency
and stability throughout. A lot of the hard work has been done on
background stuff – those items mentioned in my ‘Big Stuff’ list below.
But that’s not to ignore the importance of visual appeal, where Fedora 9
scores very highly too. Anyway, here’s my early impressions and a few
screenshots to whet your appetites."
