    it's out and it's great... now if only I could get my computer back from my ex-gf's apartment I could update to today's rawhide.

    lots of interesting developments.

    Been thinking about trying it out.

    Will probably load it on my work machine.

    Thanks for the info!

    gcc4 (meaning enforced binaries)
    SELinux (more of the goodness)
    Xen
    Free Java (and eclipse goodness)
    OpenOffice 2.0
    GNOME 2.10
    Fedora Extras (so now Ubuntu can't tease us with universe anymore)

    and lots of new stuff across the board..

    There's something to be said about having no universe repo. Ubuntu's universe is great...provides me with 97% of everything I'd ever need. But since fedora didn't have anything, 3rd party repos spread like wildfire. I remember a huge wealth of software in Dag, freshrpms, and like 5 others.

    Still though, it's nice to see the dep/rpm models converging like this.

    the none free stuff will still be pack on livna.org - since the redhat lawyers are very protective of the GPL and the Fedora brand, we can't allow ourselves to get sued to hell.
