[In the news] The register: Fedora back on track with Schrödinger's cat

"Fedora 19, codenamed Schrödinger's Cat, follows the much-delayed Fedora
18 and the good news is things looks to be back on track. Not only is
the release just a week away but it also sees Fedora returning to its
core focus: building useful software for developers.

The Ubuntu Linux distro may be busy tricking out its new touch-based
interfaces and getting ready for the first Ubuntu-based phones and
tablets to arrive, but the project has had precious little to offer the
still-dominant desktop and laptop users of late, particularly

Not so with Fedora. Sure, the GNOME project is pursuing its own tablet
and mobile dreams - though thus far no one seems interested - but
underneath the GNOME trappings Fedora has a couple of great new pieces
of software designed to make developers' lives easier.

Perhaps the most intriguing of these is the new "Developer's Assistant",
which aims to make setting up your development toolchain a bit simpler.
The idea behind Developer's Assistant is to make it easy for new Linux
developers, as well as seasoned developers new to Fedora, to get up and
running with all the tools they need quickly.

You'll need to install Developer's Assistant yourself from the Fedora
repos and unfortunately there's not much in the way of documentation at
the moment. I would suggest reading through the devassistant main page
to get an idea of how it works. Once you've got your head wrapped around
the syntax, you can create entire working environments with a single
line in the shell."

Warm regards,
