Red Hat "The Fedora Project attracts a lot of interest from the Linux faithful. While there are perhaps more newbie-friendly, corporate-friendly, or special-interest-focused distributions, Fedora continues to wear the innovation hat. Fedora announced Fedora 9 Beta late last month, and Test Center reviewers replaced the current Fedora 8 install to see what the new version has to offer. Since Fedora 9 (Stirling) is still in beta, occasional bugs and some rough edges were inevitable. But there is a solid indication of the new things to come that makes the stable release, expected May 1, worth watching."

Back in the days of Dumb Terminals like a DEC VT220, the default was for the cursor to blink. Yes you could switch it off.

I like blinking cursors.

What I want is an easy way to change my mouse color in Windows. In some applications, it just disappears into the background mush.

But it hurts your battery a bit (just a little one in the big powersave puzzle)

Even the DEC vt100 could to this.

I won't comment on this. :-)

Furthermore, I'd like to see all (!) applications to obey this setting, at least the modern ones. For example Opera: You can set your cursor to a nice black color with a white border. But when Opera starts loading a page, the mouse cursor changes into an ugly white shape with an hourglass attached.
