Fedora Core It's Fedora release day! The Fedora project has pushed out version 13 of its cutting-edge Linux distribution. There's a whole boatload of improvements, some of which come from the wider Free software ecosystem, but of course, there's also a lot Fedora/Red Hat-specific stuff.

I upgraded online from fc12 to fc13. Anaconda fails with a bug (if it sees "ntfs-ng" rather than "ntfs" in fstab) but once I booted back into fc12 and altered fstab the installation ran fine. Or so it seems so far. I hope they've improved the fonts which, out of the box, were dreadful on fc12 though some very good work at infinality.net save the day. Mail is down, though, as they haven't yet upgraded amavisd to work with new versions of db4 so it won't run. I'll give them a week or so but if no luck then I'll return to Debian. Debian is the only one that has been reliable for me. They are very good at tying up loose ends and minimizing the permanent betaware come construction site aspects of Linux that bedevil other distros including Fedora in my experience.
