Dubbed Laughlin, the Fedora 14 operating system was released on November 2nd, 2010. It was powered by Linux kernel 2.6.35 and it introduced features such as basic support for Spice, support for hardware-accelerated 2D graphics, GNOME 2.32, and KDE 4.5.

Today, November 9th, we are officially announcing that starting with December 8th, all users of the Fedora 14 (Laughlin) operating system will no longer receive security/critical fixes and software updates.

Therefore, all Fedora 14 users are urged to upgrade to the most recent version, Fedora 16, as soon as possible. For detailed upgrade instructions, please see http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/DistributionUpgrades.

If you haven't upgraded yet to Fedora 16 (Verne), you can grab the GNOME or KDE Live CDs from Softpedia, here and here. The Fedora 16 installable only DVD is also available for download from Softpedia, here.
