Thank you for this info, I'm planning several short presentations about
Fedora Project at the University of Galati, Romania, and I did not know from
where / how to get Fedora 11 CDs / DVDs.
I just wanted to give a little status update on FOSDEM.
The booth has been ordered, and although the booth will only be confirmed
next month, I'm pretty sure we will get 2 tables again :-)
Who all is planning to go? I'll try to make a wiki page asap (tonight..)
I have some good news for everyone who is envolved on Fedora:
"According to the site DistroWatch, Ubuntu, in the last 3 months, was the second most widely used Linux system for the fourth position, having been excluded from the three distributions used worldwide.
The table shows that the Mint continues to lead, but the Fedora moves to second position (previously in the third) and openSUSE to third (formerly fourth).
According to experts, this decline may be explained by the introduction of the Unity interface in Ubuntu for users new to Linux, is more complicated than the GNOME version 3, still used in other distributions from the top of the table."
We need to continue working on Fedora for continue because we are so close to the first place. People know that Fedora have what they need as ambassadors and we must pass on those.

+1. I happen to consider Gnome 3 the most productive desktop environment
(including all operating systems), but I also think that Gnome's UX is not
a relative topic for the Ambassadors list.
Nuno thanx for the info.
