    Phoronix: Fedora 21 Gets Proposals For Many More Features

    It's certainly looking like Fedora 21 will premiere with a massive amount of features, perhaps the most ever. Fedora 21 already has a ton of features but another large batch of proposals have been submitted for this next major Linux distribution release due out at the end of 2014...

    Please, can we have every distribution do this?
    There's nothing more annoying than installing a distribution, and then having to upgrade pretty much every package the second it goes online.
    It reminds me of Windows (not nearly as bad, the last time I had to install Windows 7 from scratch it took like 4 reboots and over an hour of downloads).

      You only need to reboot once, usually. The problem of doing this is the potential loss of stability that can be caused -- it also needs lots of testing.

        Actually, during the Fedora installation process, you have the option of pulling files from the update repository.

          ... And if you install a *lot* of Fedora VM's, you should consider setting up a local Fedora repo.

            Is there no easy-to-use tool to add updates to the image? The Fedora equivalent to slipstreaming, should be faster than having a hundred VMs each download updates, even from a local server.

              If you need install a large number of VM's you're most likely doing a network installation from a network server w/ a kick-start file.
              AFAIK there's no way to slipstreaming the updates (and for a good reason, some updates may actually break the installer).
