"Paul Frields, Red Hat's Fedora project leader, told me that this 'decade' release of Fedora was the best ever without any significant bugs. Yeah. I've heard that before. You know what though? Based on my early work with Fedora 10, Frields is right. This is one clean, mean cutting-edge Linux distribution.

"It starts with the boot-up with the new Plymouth graphical boot system. This speeds up the boot process by taking advantage of a new kernel mode setting feature. Right now, it shows off to its best advantage with PCs using ATI cards, but Frields promises that it will soon be expanded to support a broader range of media cards. In the meantime, you'll still see the fastest boot-ups this side of the embedded Linux SplashTop start-ups."
