"Freedom represents their dedication to open software,
which also extends to open content. The Fedora Project and
community are very insistent on remaining transparent in everything
they do. Everything the Fedora Project does is documented
online...and I mean everything. Transcripts of IRC meetings, emails
sent to their various Email lists, etc. In fact there is so much
information about the project, the operating system, and various
projects within the scope of all that is Fedora that it's sometimes
difficult to cut through it all to find what you are looking for,
but it's a small price to pay for having absolutely everything
openly available online.
"Friends, according to the official Fedora description,
represents the strength of their community. In my experience it
expands well beyond this. It's about real people interacting and
doing real world activities together, as well as volunteering and
working together on various Fedora related projects. Of course it's
the Freedom aspect which draws many of us together, but I find it
also extends to our philosophical views of the world, not just
software. I feel this is why many are so deeply dedicated to Fedora
and their core principals. Through our (On-Disk.com) activities in
the Open Source community we have met many people who volunteer and
work for the Fedora Project. These folks don't do it for the money,
or fame, but out of a much deeper commitment and belief that the
technologies they help develop and promote should belong to the
entire human race, not one particular person or company entity.
"Features, features, features, features, and more features.
Bringing innovation to a usable state is Fedora's purpose for
being. It's fair to say nobody has done it better, or pushed the
envelope of Linux and Open Source further than Fedora. Every new
release offers new cutting-edge technologies that are quickly
absorbed into the bloodstream of the Linux and Open Source
community, feeding new possibilities and features throughout."
