Fedora Core The next version of Fedora, Fedora 12, will integrate a Moblin Desktop Environment. It can be easily "groupinstalled" via the yum package manager. The environment has already been added to the Constantine alpha release of Fedora 12 and to Fedora's "Rawhide" development branch. They're seeking testers to "make it great" for the final release of Fedora 12, which will be released in early November.

Fedora + Moblin

I tried Moblin on my Fedora (rawhide) installation and it worked great. I like it's simplicity. It's propably the UI I'm going to install my wife's EEE PC once Fedora 12 is released.

Fedora is the distro that drives Linux desktop forward.

It is also the distro that pushes often questionable solutions to the throats of other distros.

The *Kit-foo are the latest example.

I am a happy Fedora user, but I remain critical for many reasons. One example of my critique focuses on too rapid release cycles and bleeding-edge solutions, which I consider doing more harm than good to Linux generally, leading to often badly planned, post haste solutions. This is of course evident in other Linux distributions as well, but Fedora may be the prime example.

Isn't it a GNOME community that decide to use *Kit technologies? Does some distros have problems with *Kit stuff? Have the distros raised their voices on GNOME devel mailing list about the issues?

Fedora is a bit different than other 98% of other distros because Fedora developes new techinologies. Of course there are rough edges but without providing the latest technologies they are not going anywhere.

fedora pushes the bleeding edge for a reason, and other distributions are free to wait until the technology matures. it does FAR more good than harm.
