Getting to Know Fedora Core 1

Anonymous Reader writes "OSNews features the first Fedora Core 1 review. The author introduces the project, discusses installation and usage and finally concludes that his 'experience with Fedora is a mixed bag of emotions'. Screenshots are included at the end of the article."

'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.'.

In short, Red Hat has decided to focus strongly on the Enterprise market (follow the money, there is nothing wrong with that) and as a result has discontinued marketing or producing new versions of what many considered to be its 'home user' freely downloadable versions of Linux, but all is not lost, not by a long shot. Red Hat has not abandoned the home users (or free OS down-loaders like me), not at all, it is providing some of its expertise in OS development, tools and financial sponsorship to the Fedora Project (http://fedora.redhat.com).
