Fedora Core 6 is Out, Really

Oct 24, 2006, 14:15 (8 Talkback[s])

This is the announcement of Zod. Zod permits you to call him "Fedora Core 6".

Tremble, Earthlings, for Zod is released from the confines of testing. Zod intends to hammer the servers of the world ... starting TODAY! For those who chose the world-domination-acceptance package in your last installation, you need do nothing -- Zod is beaming itself to your computers already. If your keyboard begins to get hot, back away ... very ... slowly ...

For the rest of you minions who failed to do Zod's bidding previously, this is your ONE AND ONLY CHANCE to redeem yourself. Go quickly! Download the torrent NOW. Obtain the ISO immediately. Zod's minions know to back up their /home directory and to begin immediate installation of the GREATEST version of Fedora Core EVER.

When you are done genuflecting, listen carefully. Zod now delivers an important message to Zod's predecessor, the Fifth Iteration of Fedora Core, known to some as Bordeaux:

"KNEEL BEFORE ZOD, for Zod has many improvements that convince users to upgrade and abandon you! Ph34r me! Mwahahahaha."

Zod accepts that the Fedora Project continues to provide software and security updates for Bordeaux, as per the policy of Zod's minions. Zod chooses to permit this action to continue.

Those who would understand Zod must begin here:


Massive downloading of Zod is known to melt servers worldwide, so Zod commands all who are able to use bittorrent.

Phoronix: Fedora Core 6 Zod Review

[ Thanks to Michael Larabel for this link. ]

"After three last-minute delays, Fedora Core 6 is finally being pushed out the door this morning. Fedora Core 6 is codenamed Zod, and is being released seven months after the much anticipated and well-deserved launch of Fedora Core 5. Yarrow, Tettnang, Heidelberg, Stentz, and Bordeaux were all exceptional or ground-breaking releases in one way or another, but what is new for Zod? After the release of Fedora Core 6 Test 1, we had written up a small preview of that development release to shed some light on what would hopefully hit the Fedora Core 6 development cycle. Today we will share with you everything that has made the cut for Zod. We have been fortunate enough to obtain an early copy of the final Fedora Core 6 spin, so we have all of the details for you this morning, so grab your coffee and enjoy...!"
