A gem of innovative and cutting-edge technology has been found emerging from the settling dust storm that was Ubuntu 7.10 called Fedora 8 “Werewolf”. It’s due to be released on November 8th and there is a plethora of very exciting things about it that may convince users (including myself) to make a switch. Here are only some of the highlights:

  • Enhanced Laptop Support
  • Enhanced Bluetooth
  • Enhanced Wireless Networking
  • Codec Buddy
  • Electronics Lab
  • IcedTea (OpenSource Java Alternative)
  • Pulse Audio
  • Tickless Kernel
  • Online Desktop
