Red Hat "The Fedora Project attracts a lot of interest from the Linux faithful. While there are perhaps more newbie-friendly, corporate-friendly, or special-interest-focused distributions, Fedora continues to wear the innovation hat. Fedora announced Fedora 9 Beta late last month, and Test Center reviewers replaced the current Fedora 8 install to see what the new version has to offer. Since Fedora 9 (Stirling) is still in beta, occasional bugs and some rough edges were inevitable. But there is a solid indication of the new things to come that makes the stable release, expected May 1, worth watching."

Back in the days of Dumb Terminals like a DEC VT220, the default was for the cursor to blink. Yes you could switch it off.


Even the DEC vt100 could to this.

I like blinking cursors.


I won't comment on this. :-)

What I want is an easy way to change my mouse color in Windows. In some applications, it just disappears into the background mush.


Furthermore, I'd like to see all (!) applications to obey this setting, at least the modern ones. For example Opera: You can set your cursor to a nice black color with a white border. But when Opera starts loading a page, the mouse cursor changes into an ugly white shape with an hourglass attached.
