Fedora Core Fedora Core, a popular flavor of Linux being developed by the open-source community, is hardly hefty by today's operating system standards. But to fit the tight specs for the $100 laptop being designed by MIT's One-Lap-Per-Child group, Fedora will need to go on a crash diet, concedes its overseer, Red Hat. The Linux software maker confirmed today that it has donated $2 million [EUR 1.65 million] to the OLPC and joined as a corporate member and said it plans to put some of its brightest engineers to the task of slimming down Fedora before the laptops debut in early 2007.

Uh...correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't it say that they are building a custom Fedora version? Right in the article summary in fact.

No, the article says that they're gonna "slim down Fedora" and Fedora "will need to go on a crash diet", not that they're building a custom version.
