Fedora Core Fedora 8 Release Candidate 3 has been released. "Fedora 8 Release Candidate 3 has been released on the torrent site. Both DVD and Live images have been provided. Unless something goes terribly wrong, these will be the same bits (modulo gpg signed SHA1SUM files) that will go to the mirrors for the final Fedora 8 release." Update: There is an interview up about CodecBuddy's inclusion in Fedora 8 with the two developers behind this feature.

The only issue I see with using Mepis, is the fact that is is the work of only one developer. I'll admit he's doing great work, but I could easily see the distro falling out, such as was the case with Libranet. Personally, I would rather use a distro that has some backing, and support. The fact that the Mepis creator has been very quiet the past month, had several people worried, he might have health issues, when in fact, it just turned out, he got a job, and was devoting much time to something he can make money from.

Yes, I see your point. We can only hope it turns alright. I really like the concept of Mepis 7.0. If it's a success, the project may get more developers.
