Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers


"In one of the most highly anticipated Linux Distribution releases in years, Red Hat's Fedora Project launched its Fedora Core 2 (FC2), the company said.

"'This release marks a great step forward,' Red Hat spokesperson Leigh Day told internetnews.com. 'It's based on the latest technology, the 2.6 kernel and also includes SELinux, as well many other improvements and new innovations that have been added to this release.'

"The Fedora Project is Red Hat's community based project and is the successor to its previous Red Hat Linux line. Red Hat Linux 9 was the final product in that line and reached its official end of life for errata updates at the end of April. Fedora Core 2 is the second major release since the Red Hat sponsored project began, Fedora Core 1 was released in November of 2003..."

The Fedora Project would like to thank the thousands of community members whose testing and contributions have raised the bar of quality and made this release possible.

What is the Fedora Project?

The Fedora Project is a Red Hat-sponsored and community-supported open source project that promotes rapid development of innovative open source software through a collaborative, community effort. Fedora Core 2 provides a complete Linux platform built exclusively from open source software. Available at no cost, the release serves the needs of community developers, testers, and other technology enthusiasts who wish to participate in and accelerate the technology development process.

As a community forum for advanced development, the Fedora Project provides early visibility to the latest open source technology and serves as a proving ground for technology that may eventually make its way into Red Hat's fully-supported commercial solutions such as Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Red Hat contributes development resources, editorial direction and management to the Fedora Project.

How Can I Get Fedora Core 2?

Fedora Core 2 x86 or x86-64 Downloads are available from: http://fedora.redhat.com/download/ or from the network of mirrors in the Fedora Project distribution system. Users may prefer to download Fedora Core via BitTorrent, or via older file retrieval protocols such as HTTP, FTP, or RSYNC. BitTorrent typically provides faster download speeds than HTTP, FTP, or RSYNC.

BitTorrent RPMS for Red Hat Linux and Fedora Core are available with detailed instructions at http://torrent.linux.duke.edu/
