With the release of Fedora Core 5 (Bordeaux) being just hours away now from its official launch, a few Fedora developers and other prodigies of the Fedora Project have begun blogging about the fifth installment of Fedora Core. The official Fedora Core 5 ISOs have been on a majority of the official Fedora mirrors since this past Friday, and will remain locked until the official launch by Red Hat (except for of course the occasional unlocked mirror). However, the active developers have received FC5 this weekend. Some of those who have already blogged about the Fedora 5 experience include Adrian Reber
, Tejas Dinkar
, Thomas Vander Stichele
, and Josh Boyer
. EDIT [2006-03-19]:
Jeremy Katz has now posted a new blog entry
with extensive thoughts on both Fedora Core 5 and the upcoming Fedora Core 6. Look for Phoronix coverage of Fedora Core 5 coming tomorrow (Monday) and the following days to come with hardware examinations.
