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.

Red Hat Global Desktop

I wonder what the Red Hat Global Desktop will be like, I hope they borrow a lot from Fedora Core 'the later releases' in it so it will have full functionality.

I have RHEL5 Client on my workstation at the office and it is still missing some gtk2 libs that are not available to it as of yet.

I can't wait to install FC8 on my laptop and other workstations when it is finalized.

Kudos to Fedora, keep up the excellent work!

Red Hat Global Desktop is based on the RHEL 5.x stream and unlikely to pick many features from later Fedora releases.

Also note that it is Fedora 8, not FC8 since Core and Extras repositories are merged from Fedora 7 onwards and anyone interested could contribute to any package in the repository.

I have RHEL5 installed and using my RHN account for the ability to download updates from the channel. I have yet to find a SVN to install (gui-style) because some qt or some libs are not available. I most likely will file a bug report or bring it to their attention.

RHEL5 is solid and good for workstations/laptops, the only reason why I have it loaded to begin with is studying for the RHCE and at work I normally take 1 hour a day to prepare.
