Fedora Core 6 Review
Fedora Core 6 was released on the 24th, not the 24th of December, but the 24th of October. I can't remember who said that on the Fedora IRC channel, but for him a new Fedora release was a bit like Christmas. Maybe that's because a release time is given as well as a release date, so you can count the hours, the minutes and even the seconds separating you from the upcoming release. Or maybe it's just the quality of the distribution which makes these moments magic. I remembered having tested Fedora Core 5, aka Bordeaux, a few month ago and I had been very impressed by it. Since then the releases of Ubuntu 6.06, Suse 10.1 and Mandriva 2007 had each pushed the bar a little higher, and I couldn't wait to see how the release of Zod, Fedora Core 6, would participate in making my Linux experience even better.
