The countdown can begin... 7 days remaining until the official launch of Fedora Core 5 and GNOME v2.14.0. Although CeBIT is beginning bright and early tomorrow morning, and ends on March 15, which will result with quite a bit of premiere articles during this time period (starting in just a few hours!), we have some things planned out for these Fedora happenings. Yesterday we managed to speak with Greg DeKoenigsberg, who serves as the community relations manager for Red Hat, and hope to have an interview ready by early next week. This interview will primarily focus on Fedora Core 5 (and Core 6) happenings as well as some Fedora Project outlooks, and a few general Linux items. Certainly it will be well worth reading, and we will also be presenting a wealth of new Fedora Core 5 literature next week. Also, we can't forget about GNOME v2.14.0, which is penciled in to premiere on the same day.
