Fedora 8 Developer Spin is a Live CD based on Fedora 8 Linux distribution and contains tools and software designed for Linux developers.
The Fedora Unity project has been created by concerned peers in the Fedora Community to fulfill the need to bring unity to the Community. These are members of the Community who want to see the best content find its way into the hands of the Community. Members may include site maintainers, Fedora Project contributors, and interested users.
To ultimately expand the Fedora Community by building comprehensive and concise websites and content that provide users and contributors with quality information to help them get things done. These sites are to be tied together to prevent fragmentation and minimize duplication. This association will provide a tighter and more flexible community.
Fedora Core is now available from Red Hat and at distinguished mirror sites near you, and is also available in the torrent.
Fedora Core has expanded in this release to four binary ISO images and four source ISO images, and is available for both x86-64 and i386 and also PPC machines.
The Fedora Project is a Red-Hat-sponsored and community-supported open source project. It is also a proving ground for new technology that may eventually make its way into Red Hat products. It is not a supported product of Red Hat, Inc.
The goal of The Fedora Project is to work with the Linux community to build a complete, general purpose operating system exclusively from free software. Development will be done in a public forum. The project will produce time-based releases of Fedora Core about 2-3 times a year with a public release schedule.
The Red Hat engineering team will continue to participate in the building of Fedora Core and will invite and encourage more outside participation than was possible in Red Hat Linux.
By using this more open process, we hope to provide an operating system that uses free software development practices and is more appealing to the open source community.
