  1. Is it just me, or does every version of Fedora look the same after Fedora 6? All they do is change the wallpaper, move things around in yum/yast/whatever a little, slap a catchy codename on it, and then call it a new version. When are they going to do something truly amazing?

  2. heh… I knew you’d say that…

    actually I HIGHLY recommend giving it a shot! make sure you also install rpmfusion…

    I installed the PREVIEW, and everything worked… and the crap that didn’t KNEW it didn’t and installed the packages needed to START working!!!

    MP3 playback: “Oh, I’m sorry mister user, I need libmp3 to play that… but hey, I know where to get it, here, lemme go ahead and install that for you… there, playing!”

    Bluetooth headset support: “Hey, I see you’re pairing a bluetooth headset there, I don’t have audio support for that… but hey, I know where to get alsa-bluez and gstreamer-bluez and pulse-bluez! lemme install those for you… there! ok, bluetooth headset paired. would you like me to go ahead and dump audio to that for ya? ok!”

    3D desktop support: “Hey! I se you are trying to enable 3d effects… but your video card doesn’t support it… would you like me to install the nvidia kernel module for ya?… bla bla bla”

    yeah… it did that so many times I crapped myself each time… I gotta stop wearing pants… or do this on the toilet…

    The Fedora team appears to have gotten their crap together… stuff is starting to work in ways that previously it didn’t… as for the look, Fedora is not responsible for changing the APPEARANCE of the UI, YOU ARE!!! everything you see is a theme… if you want a differant theme, GET ONE!!! (gnome) (KDE) or make one yourself.

  3. You notice they just bumped it up from 8 days to 14 days?…

    They’re just teasing you.

  4. Why do you hate me, Fedora?!?

  5. So… did you ever try out Fedora 11 after all?…
