Fedora Core A week ago, the Fedora Project released Fedora 9 into the world. Fedora 9 comes with GNOME 2.22, KDE 4.0.3, Xfce 4.2.2, PackageKit, Firefox 3.0 beta 5, a 2.6.25-based Linux kernel, and much more. As always, the intertubes have been flooded with reviews, so we figured we would summarise a few of them.

Why should nVIdia support software which isn't released yet?


They do for MS Windows! So why not for Linux based products. Many companies like ATI and nVidia start creating drivers while the next Windows version is still in development stages. That way, when the product goes live, the drivers are there!

Why does everybody treat Linux base software as second rate software compared to Windows???

Surely this is obvious? The massive difference in user-base sizes is obviously what determines where the bulk of any companies resources are going to be allocated, so yes, when it comes to user-base and thus $, many companies, especially one such as NVidia which focuses heavily on the 3D gaming market which is historically stronger on Windows, would consider Linux second rate.
