Batten down the hatches, Fedora 8 Test 2 spotted just over the port
A veritable "sea" of choices await you in this release. First up is
the "Fedora" installable 'choose your own adventure' style set of isos
and trees for i386, x86_64, and ppc(64). Next up we have a variety of
* Fedora Live (i686, x86_64, ppc) - A good general use Desktop live
image. i686 even fits on a CD!
* Fedora KDE Live (i686, x86_64) - A Desktop based on the KDE software
suite. i686 even fits on a CD!
* Fedora Developer Live (i686) - A Live image designed for software
* Fedora Electronic Lab (FEL) Live (i686) - A live image designed for
engineers working on electronics. Fits on a CD!
Remember that these Live images can be used on USB meida via the
'livecd-iso-to-disk' utility available in the livecd-tools package.
Test 2 is for "beta" users. This is the time where we have more
features in a "testable" state where the more people using them and the
more feedback we get the better. So please help us make Fedora 8 as
good as we can!
