Fedora is always loaded with new technologies, and the new Fedora 17 release has the most ever. Get a head start on what's going to appear in Red Hat Enterprise Linux by grabbing a copy of the new Beefy Miracle.

Fedora Linux is a high-quality community-supported distribution, and a showcase for new technologies. SELinux, Systemd, PulseAudio, new kernels, new Gnome and KDE releases – if it's bleeding-edge chances are you will find it in Fedora. Some call Fedora a testbed for Red Hat Enterprise Linux, a characterization that the nice RH folks don't always agree with. Regardless of what you call it, new features appear first in Fedora, get pummeled by users, and then work their way into RHEL. It's a great way to get an early look and start testing new goodies.

Fedora 17, the Beefy Miracle, was released May 29 and is nine, count 'em, nine gigabytes of hot Linux goodness. You don't have to use all those gigabytes, of course, just install the bits you want. It comes in 32- and 64-bit flavors, live CD, DVD, live USB, and multiple spins. Some example spins are Fedora Security Lab, Scientific KDE, Robotics, and Design Suite.
