I need some input on installation of Fedora 2. Would you suggest that I not attempt to install Fedora 2 on a laptop running an Sony Vaio, Athlon 1 Ghz machine with 256MB RAM, aprx 2 years old? I am just worried about hardware issues.
Fedora Extras has published today firefox and thunderbird packages for
FC1 and FC2. These packages have been heavily patched and polished to
integrate nicely into the Preferred Applications framework of FC2. This
means that you can go into the Preferences -> Preferred Applications
chooser, select Firefox & Thunderbird, and the GNOME desktop should
fully honor your choice of browser and mail client when clicking
hyperlinks in various programs of FC2.
Please follow the directions on this page if you do not already use
Fedora Extras. Report problems of firefox & thunderbird to
FC1 users can also use firefox & thunderbird from the Fedora Extras
stable repository, but unfortunately the Preferred Applications
framework in FC1 is a bit broken. As a workaround you can run this
script as your non-root user to set your profile to use these two

I'd like to see a better Fedora logo. I assume the reason for its current design is that Red Hat may not have wanted Fedora to look like RH (or even close), but I could be wrong. The current Fedora logo is just too plain.
Am I alone with this view?
For those that haven't seen the news yet, Garrett LeSage, the designer
of Bluecurve, is leaving RedHat: http://linuxart.com/news.phtml?sid=760
Garrett did great work and he will be missed.
I wondered if anyone could shed some light on the future of Bluecurve
and the visual aspects of Fedora/RHL in light of Garrett's departure. I
understand that RedHat has been hiring or trying to hire some designers?
The Fedora icons can be found here:
While looking around on Garrett's pages I came across this shocking news on http://linuxart.com/
Leaving Red Hat
After a lot of careful consideration, I decided to leave Red Hat two weeks ago. Today is my last day with the company.
I worked with several very talented, friendly and enthusiastic people at Red Hat. I am glad I was able to make an impact with things like designing and implementing Bluecurve (the themes, icons, and such you see in Red Hat products and also in Fedora), my work to make Fedora happen, the launch of Wide Open Magazine, the redesign of Red Hat Network, and everything else I did while at Red Hat.
It was a great 2+ years.
I wonder if it is possible a subsection or category to fedora installer,
where we can shoose to install XFce (like KDE or GNOME)

I was wondering, do any of you know of any Fedora artwork that can be
made into a cover and CD-label for my Fedora CD-set or maybe even some
finished covers or cd-labels?
If someone not as artistically retarded as me decided to make something
like this, will it be ok (as in legal) to distribute it?
