We can only hope they make it into the final release! 12 Comments 2008-07-10 8:44 am sukru I think I’m a little bit old minded, but… What’s the benefit of a web based software portal? We already have a stable yum system, with very good desktop frontends. Additionally we have sites like gnomefiles to discover, and discuss about newer software. Why build another site, while we already have the features easily accessible today? 2008-07-10 9:18 am Moredhas Sometimes it’s hard to see the benefit of a feature when it’s just down in text. I use Mint, and I didn’t get the software portal at first, but I find it quite useful. The Mint software portal allows for users to post reviews and rate the software, which can be helpful to people who aren’t sure what program they want (i.e, when they’re new to Linux and open source software). Granted, there isn’t much benefit for people who know the software they want, but it’s a nice feature for new users. 2008-07-10 11:28 am Adurbe I also use mint but the portal is lacking applications such as vmware, parallels, crossover, commercial trials which would be useful to many people. There needs to be a more commercial side to the software on offer (mainly demos/trials) The only apps I have used the mint portal to install are skype and google earth, everything else seems to be a no-name gamble to achive what I want otherwise apt works just as well 2008-07-10 9:39 am Rahul To get a better idea of what the web portal will be capable of https://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-websites-list/2008-July/msg00… Couple of mockups at http://yipyop.com/fedora/images/fedora_app_page.png http://yipyop.com/fedora/images/fedora_apps.png 2008-07-10 1:21 pm Kroc Think iTunes AppStore, but where everything is free! 2008-07-10 8:50 am kikiloveu When our familyâ€™s senior are feeling lonely they can go out and play golf. But who can really have their mind talk? Some senior are talking happily on a boomer singles site named ***JSenior Match . co M*** . You may come and have a word and listen to their talking. Help them find a soul mate. 2008-07-10 8:52 am elliott1787 Live CD Without the CD – Instead of creating a program like Wubi to let you do a special partitioning-free installation from Windows, the plan here is to make a Windows program that essentially lets you run the live CD straight from the ISO image on your hard drive. Like we can already do with VitrualBox or any of the other virtualization software? 2008-07-10 9:41 am Rahul The feature proposal for installation from Windows seems to be based on http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/ https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/InstallFromWindows has more details. 2008-07-10 1:33 pm ebasconp Several options to do this: * Provide a VMware (or QEMU or Bochs or VirtualBox) image and start the “LiveCD” inside it. * Compile all the Fedora environment on top of Cygwin and run the stuff inside there (this is quite ridiculous because it is not feasible). * Use coLinux kernel instead of the Fedora one [Ubuntu has a version using this approach]. 2008-07-10 4:42 pm gilboa … Or have grub/ntloader loop-mount a ext3/iso-image from from your FAT32/NTFS drive and boot from it. – Gilboa 2008-07-11 7:19 am simo Funnily enough I had the mis-fortune to have to get an IPv6 webserver working on a 256Mb P3 the other day, so thought I’d try Xubuntu – what a load of rubbish, it actually had a higher CPU load than regular Ubuntu and was completely unusable. I ended up putting CentOS 5.1 on there which ran like a dream even in runlevel 5! How about working wireless for F10, its totally broken for anything but Atheros in F9. 2008-07-11 1:26 pm Rahul It works very well with Intel wireless too. Unfortunately there was intermediate breakage with a security fix which has subsequently been fixed. Red Hat employs the upstream wireless subsystem maintainer so Fedora pretty much carries the latest wireless bits at all times. Without getting into proprietary drivers, wireless in Fedora is certainly among the best in Linux.
