Fedora Core A week ago, the Fedora Project released Fedora 9 into the world. Fedora 9 comes with GNOME 2.22, KDE 4.0.3, Xfce 4.2.2, PackageKit, Firefox 3.0 beta 5, a 2.6.25-based Linux kernel, and much more. As always, the intertubes have been flooded with reviews, so we figured we would summarise a few of them.

Red Hat has currently atleast two people working on KDE in the Fedora side along with three or four very active volunteers. They along with others have been running the KDE Special Interest Group in Fedora.

There is a KDE spin that gives a experience very close to the upstream project. You can grab the live cd at

A overview of the KDE 4 experience in Fedora 9 is available at

Fedora offers both Windows and Linux tools for creating bootable USB sticks (persistent, non-destructive). This is completely the first time any operating has provided this level of functionality. Lifehacker ran a review on it at

Take a look at other functionality in Fedora 9 too
