Fedora 13 will be here soon

Fedora is my favorite flavor of Linux and I use it as a Desktop OS and as a Server.  I just thought I would throw this out there for others to check out.  Fedora for thoughs who didn’t know is an Red Hat based distro.  I have made attempts to convert completely over to open source software, but there are just somethings that require Windows.  Either way it is a good operating system and you should take a look at it.  You can find out more at www.fedoraproject.org .Here is a list of features have been accepted by the Fedora Engineering Steering Committee for the Fedora 13 Release.

Re-base to the NetBeans 6.8

NetworkManager Bluetooth DUN

NetworkManager now supports easy-to-use Bluetooth Dial-Up Networking (DUN) support

NetworkManager Command Line

Control NetworkManager without a GUI

Virtio-Serial

Expose multiple ports to the guest in the form of simple char devices for simple IO between the guest and host userspaces

Virt Shared Network Interface

Enable guest virtual machines to share a physical network interface (NIC) with other guests and the host operating system
