Fedora Core It's Fedora release day! The Fedora project has pushed out version 13 of its cutting-edge Linux distribution. There's a whole boatload of improvements, some of which come from the wider Free software ecosystem, but of course, there's also a lot Fedora/Red Hat-specific stuff.

Better than previous releases

I installed yesterday in a P4 machine that was running FC12. Feel that it is running smooter.

This machine had a FC5 and a video capture card, that was hard to configure at that time, and I could not configure well in FC12. This time I had no need to configure anything.

So, I'm a kind of happy.

One thing that was strange is when tried to install a software using yum. It took a while because it conflicts with automated update checking that is installed by default. Disabled thet auto check, I prefer to verify by myself in a weekly basis.

I will play with this one and if it runs well, will install in my main PC on next week. I'm a Fedorer, but do not migrate until testing by myself. Last time I skipped FC9 to FC11.

Rgds,

Welcome to PackageKit. Like PulseAudio and KDE 4.0, this is clearly the way to go for desktop Linux, so a lot of distro have to implement it. This way, many people will test it, and maybe in the end it will become stable, useful, and usable. You're lucky to have the chance to try it out... or maybe not.
