RedHat released their latest version of the Fedora Project’s Linux distro recently. Release 11 comes in the typical Gnome desktop format and a KDE format for those who prefer it. I like both Gnome and KDE, although I typically use KDE because it can be configured to look more like Windows.
I was trying to get an FTP Program to work, and decided to see if I could connect to a Fedora mirror. Then I decided to download the latest version in the KDE format and try it out in a Virtual Machine. Although I’m an Ubuntu fan more than anything, I cut my teeth on RedHat version 7.0. And I’ve played around with the Fedora Project on occasion.
I’ll be running it inside of a VirtualBox virtual machine. VirtualBox is Sun Microsystem’s addition to the virtual machine landscape. As I discover new things about Fedora, I’ll create blog posts to let you know about them. Although it may not be a regular series, I do intend to put Fedora 11 through it’s paces.
Have a great day:)
