I am from Brazil and I am thinking about an improvement to our Announcement
of new version.
What do all you thing if we separate the new features for groups of interest?
Same as the Announcement of Gnome. Take a look:
IMO It is better than we have now.

Fedora Marketing Team Meeting
When: Tuesday the 31st of March 2009 @ 21.00 UTC, remember this is now
5PM Eastern and 2PM Pacific.
Where: #fedora-meeting on irc.freenode.net
What: On the agenda is to make sure we wrap everything that was in the
beta time frame and to move forward on everything from preview and until
release. We need to start tightening things up so that we can have an
See you all there,
I am big fan of Fedora. I tried to help Fedora several times before but my
attempts were not very successful. This time, I have an idea how to
contribute in a different way. I have prepared a remote desktop server with
additional features available for all users interested in try Fedora and
GNU/Linux. Also, I wrote a client application capable to connect to this
server. Please, have a look at:
This is a remote desktop server running Fedora 10 and GNOME. So, it is very
useful for demonstration purposes.
I would like to thank Prof. Ranjith Kumar, Department of Mechanical
Engineering, Government Engineering College (GEC), Barton Hill,
Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala, India for coordinating with me for the
past one month for the National Seminar event on Embedded Design with
GNU/Linux that was held on Saturday, March 21, 2009:
I would also like to thank the Directorate of Technical Education, and
Kerala State Council for Science, Technology, and Environment for
organizing the event.
I discussed basic concepts of embedded systems, and gave a demo of
gEDA tools suite (gschem, pcb, qucs, iverilog, gtkwave) on Fedora 10.
Some photos taken during the visit are available at:
Time's are cahnging and the trend in the use of computers is also changing.
Though with this in mind, I believe that the project has to ride along the
waves of change.
The Idea behind this is that I have been an advocate of Fedora Before I even
joined the project. Though now I am I hope 2 become a positive flow of
energy into the project. I whould like to establish what would be a home for
not only Linux, but a home for Fedora in Lesotho.
With this all said and done, I hope that I could get some help in developing
interest amoung computer enthusias about the project so that they contribute
to smoething much bigger and meaningfull. Along with there is a ptoject I
will hope Fedora will help me develop.
"With the forthcoming release of Fedora 11, Red Hat has made the bold
(but wise) decision of replacing xf86-video-nv as the default
open-source NVIDIA driver with the Nouveau driver instead."
"Besides a clean, beautiful boot experience with Plymouth when using
kernel mode-setting, VT switching is dramatically faster and runs at the
same resolution as the running X Server. "
"Kudos to all of the Nouveau developers and to Red Hat for taking this
stand in enabling it by default. Hopefully we will see other Linux
desktop distributions make the switch from xf86-video-nv to Nouveau."
"But considering the differences - Fedora 11 seems to be a full 6 months
ahead of Ubuntu. Most of the features included in Fedora 11 now
(gnome-media, faster boot, KMS, Plymouth, Firefox 3.1, Thunderbird 3,
OpenOffice 3.1, etc) are planned only in Ubuntu 9.10.
Ubuntu sure has some catching up to do. When Ubuntu 9.10 releases, I
can't even begin to imagine how far ahead Fedora 12 will be!"

Subj: desktop relevance
Date: Wed Mar 25, 2009 4:02 pm
To: For discussions about marketing and expanding the Fedora user base<fedora-marketing-list(a)redhat.com>
I was a bit disappointed to read the interview with Jim Whitehurst on
InfoWorld where he talked about (Red Hat's) Linux desktop's relevance.
On the one hand I agree with him that desktops will move more and more
to hosted applications or virtual frameworks. But besides that Red Hat
already offers a gread desktop product with a large userbase: Fedora.
Also web based components will be more and more integrated into
traditional desktop products. Please remember that there are still a
lot of people out there using old versions of Windows, too. These also
want to take part in the online future. So there will be backports and
And note: Fedora does offer all of that great features, today.
But as InfoWorld is a traditionally business-oriented netmag the focus
was on 'making money with Linux desktops' I can somewhat understand
his position. You can earn more money with services and solutions. I
am just disappointed that it has not been clearly stated that the best
way to keep up on that road is to use free components and to improve
the (free) Linux desktop experience.

Hi Marcus, I am confused.
It reads like your saying Fedora "is" Redhat. I thought it was a seperate distribution much like CentOS is seperate.
