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.

That is an awesome DVD cover, I like the whole WEREWOLF naming convention they used since it was around Halloween I assume.

So is Fedora Core 8 going to install by default as either a Gnome gdm or KDE kdm manager?

I am a bit confused to how the install is going to perform or do you have to download KDE after the install?

So, we have several different spins which are variants of Fedora targetted towards different kinds of users. Among these, if you are a GNOME user, you pick the GNOME Desktop spin which is a live image that you can install to a hard disk or usb flash too. Similarly there is a KDE spin for KDE fans.

You can also download the regular Fedora DVD image and you get a choice of either GNOME or KDE. So have it the way you want it.
