Fedora Core 5
Fedora Core, the followup to the old Red Hat Linux line of distros
after RH9, is an operating system and platform, first released in
2003, and is the central Fedora project. It is always free for
anyone to use, modify, and distribute, now and forever.
Hot on the heels of the recent release of Fedora Core 5, Fedora
Ambassador (and NYLUG member) Jack Aboutboul will present about
the Fedora Project, Fedora Core 5, the Fedora vision, and its
community. Fedora is making leaps in terms of improvements with
each new release, and its community is growing larger and more
active all the time.
Among the new features of FC5 are the inclusion of the Mono .NET
framework, Beagle (formerly Dashboard) search tool, the latest
versions of Gnome and KDE, new stack protection capabilities, and
Xen virtualization technology.
Among other high-profile, high-load sites, Fedora largely powers
the WikiMedia sites.
