Fedora Core 4 Released


Fedora Core 4 (Stentz) is the latest release, from the project sponsored by Red Hat Inc. Every new version of Fedora Core comes with interesting new features and many bug fixes. “Fedora Core 4 continues our tradition of syncing to the latest and greatest open source releases, including GNOME® 2.10, KDE 3.4.0, Firefox™ 1.0.4, OpenOffice.org 1.9.104, and a 2.6.11-based kernel,” Red Hat desktop team lead Havoc Pennington said. Iam waiting for getting FC4. If you get FC4 please give me. But from the screen shot, i didn’t like this type of desktop. I like the old look. I used this type of desktop in Ubuntu. But iam not sure that whether i like the desktop of FC4 or not. I will tell you after i using it,ok. Some of its features are Java enablers, Xen and virtualization (Xen is defined as a “paravirtualizing virtual machine monitor,” or hypervisor. What this really means is that you can execute multiple virtual machines on a single physical system with close to native performance!), Fedora Core 4 effectively became the first Linux distribution to ship the GNU C Compiler (GCC) version 4 as the default compiler and many more. Visit the link for more details.
