Fedora 20 Reaches Beta, New Screenshots Published

Posted in GNU/Linux, Red Hat at 9:59 am by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

The KDE version back in Fedora 18 days (a year ago)

Fedora

Summary: Fedora 20 is almost ready and Techrights members who use Fedora say that it is good and rather polished

RED HAT has become very serious about OpenStack and all that Fog Computing hype, arguing that it’ll mature just like Linux [1]. Red Hat is still a servers company, not a desktop company, even though the company is fostering the desktop side through projects like Fedora.

Fedora is a very important project and it is said to be improving polish-wise [2] and performance-wise [3]. The next release (20) is now in beta [4,5,6] and there are already screenshots of its KDE ‘flavour’ [7], which I last used in 2011. Some people on the Web have told us (e.g. in IRC) that Fedora is no longer plagued by bugs and usability wrinkles, so maybe it’s time to give Fedora a try. The final release is imminent.

Related/contextual items from the news:

  1. Red Hat CFO: OpenStack is where Linux was 10 years ago

    Charlie Peters, CFO of Red Hat, says to expect a big bounce in service revenues in 2014 on the strength of the company’s OpenStack push.

  2. Don’t Expect Major Bugs In Fedora 20 Heisenbug Beta

    Heisenbug is just a name: Red Hat’s Robyn Bergeron tells Sean Michael Kerner about the new Fedora’s SDN and storage improvements

  3. Fedora 19 vs. Fedora 20 Beta Benchmarks

    Due to Fedora 20 development releases shipping with debug symbols and other non-release-ready code, the tests today were limited to just giving a quick overview of the performance differences between Fedora 20 Beta and Fedora 19. Fedora 19 was tested in both its stock configuration and then installing all available updates. For ruling out some of the performance issues on Fedora 20 Beta due to the debug state, “slub_debug=-” was set as one of the kernel command-line parameters.

  5. Fedora 20 beta released
  6. Fedora 20 “Heisenbug” goes beta

    First things first, what the heck is a Heisenbug? It’s not a made-up word. It’s programmers’ jargon, spun off from Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle, for “A bug that disappears or alters its behavior when one attempts to probe or isolate it.” For Linux users it’s also Red Hat’s next community Linux, Fedora 20.
