"Red Hat (NYSE: RHT) Linux and the Fedora Project developers
will soon introduce core technological improvements to provide
better desktop environments and video driver support in the
upcoming release of both the commercial and the free open source
operating systems later this year.
The first weekend in December saw more than 200 Fedora
developers, open source enthusiasts and contributors gather at the
York campus of Senaca College in Toronto, Canada, for the Fedora
Users and Developers Conference (FUDCon). Their goal was to share
knowledge about the Fedora free operating system and their vision
for the next generation of open source technologies. FUDCon is held
several times per year at locations around the globe.
"This most recent gathering was one of the largest and most
successful events the Fedora community ever hosted, according to
Paul Frields, Red Hat's Fedora Project Leader. Red Hat is the
commercial developer of the Red Hat Linux distribution. Fedora
Linux is the free open source community-based version."
