Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"With over 20 million installations, Fedora is among the most
world's popular Linux distributions. While that kind of success has
been due to a rapid base of supporters, the distro originally
launched by Red Hat as a community Linux project is having to
bridge the divide between targeting a mass audience and keeping
hardcore enthusiasts in the fold.
"That's no easy task, but for Fedora Project Leader Paul
Frields, it's key to the distro's continued growth.
""I'm not interested in a shotgun approach where we reach every
single person on the planet, though that wouldn't be a bad thing,"
Frields said during a session at the FUDCon Fedora conference here
this weekend. "At Fedora, we're not interested in 'fanboy'-ism.
What we're interested in is people that want to contribute."
