"Fedora 16 is code-named Verne, for Jules Verne. (If you haven't
read Verne his works are still widely available, and are even on
Kindle and Nook. Treat yourself; they're wonderful.) I tested the
Fedora 16 beta, released on October 4th.
Fedora is both a great testbed for new technologies, and a good
distro with a strong commitment to free (as in freedom) software.
Fedora was the first, or among the first to roll out SELinux, a
free Java environment (GNU Java, OpenJDK, and ecj) back before
Sun's Java was converted to the GPL, PulseAudio, and Nouveau.
