  • Fedora 15 confident of a good release

    hi all Linux Fans. I am a long time Fedora and OpenSuSe user from many years ago. For me, if I want to get serious work done, and a bit of play as well, both suit fine. I am confident that F15 will be a good, possibly bordering on great release. I have used F12 with updates, until F14 was released am running F13 with updates as a workhorse machine ATM.

    Given Fedora's excellent track record on QA from F10 + (i have used all releases since then) I think and I hope that F15 will be a stable, and fast release.

    I know that many have commented on GNOME 3 and the rights/wrongs of it I won't judge it until I've used it. Will give it couple of months for updates as well, before I make up muy mind.

    All the best to my fellow Linux fans!.
