I came across this link and was curious if anyone else has seen it. So now when you are using RedHat Linux and it's not the enterprise version you are actually using "Fedora" :blink: ?

What is The Fedora Project?

Red Hat Linux now has two descendents, Red Hat Enterprise Linux and The Fedora Project. The Fedora Project is an openly-developed project designed by Red Hat, open for general participation, led by a meritocracy, following a set of project objectives.


looks like it. :huh:

The New Name

The Red Hat Linux Project, as this used to be called, is merging with the Fedora Linux project. We had so many common goals that to work apart would be a waste of effort. We have months of effort before we can have a unified infrastructure, so we still have two different web sites, two sets of documentation, and so forth, but we will be unifying our work over time. Red Hat would like to thank Fedora Linux project developers for proposing the merger and committing time to making the merger a reality.

Red Hat would also like to thank the Fedora project at UVA and Cornell for cooperating with us in the use of the "Fedora" name.


so, there you go

Hmmm it'll be interesting to see where it goes now since redhat is probably the most innovative distribution (although now they are calling it an operating system :)). The list of objectives seems pretty impressive.

yeah, it should be cool to see what comes out, but its prolly just redhat under a different name (after all, they DO say the two projects are sooo close they have to unite them) so don't expect anything redhat wouldn't do.....

This is going to be interesting; some of my clients use the downloadable version and some use the one they paid 50 bucks for.

Nah they just changed the name when they merged with "Fedora Linux". Fedora sounds like it's going to be really sweet. Giving redhat back to the community is just freakin' great imho. Granted it's not TOTALLY in the public domain I think this is a good thing. The steering committee sounds like it will give the project an element of control that'll quell the bickering you see with Debian. I very anxious to see where this goes.
