“There are many things to explore on the Linux Planet. This
week, a new Fedora release provides plenty of items to examine. The
new Fedora release isn’t the only new open source release this
week, as the Linux Planet welcomes new KDE and Firefox releases as
Red Hat’s Fedora community Linux project is one of the most
widely used Linux distributions on the planet. It is also often one
of the first to debut new upstream features to its community, and
that’s once again the case with Fedora 16.
Fedora 16 includes the new GNOME 3.2 Linux desktop, providing
users with a refined GNOME Shell that benefits from multiple
stability and functionality improvements over GNOME 3, which
debuted in Fedora 15. While GNOME is in the default spin of Fedora
16, KDE, LXDE and Xfce desktop spins are available as well.
