Fedora 14 (Laughlin)

Fedora 14, the latest revision of the Linux distribution produced by the Fedora Community and Redhat, has hit the streets. 

Fedora is a Linux-based operating system, a collection of software that makes your computer run. You can use Fedora in addition to, or instead of, other operating systems such as Microsoft Windows™ or Mac OS X™. The Fedora operating system is completely free of cost for you to enjoy and share.

The Fedora Project is the name of a worldwide community of people who love, use, and build free software from around the globe. We want to lead in the creation and spread of free code and content by working together as a community. Fedora is sponsored by Red Hat, the world's most trusted provider of open source technology. Red Hat invests in Fedora to encourage collaboration and incubate innovative new free software technologies.

The four foundations of freedom, features, friends, and first are the core values of the Fedora community.

The upgrade of my desktop from a clean install of Fedora 13 to Fedora 14 went well. There was a minor glitch with Thunderbird, but it seemed to go away as soon as I filed a bug report and posted a note to the community email list. So, now it's time to move on to the server.  The process is pretty easy.

  1. At the command line: preupgrade-cli  "Fedora 14 (Laughlin)"
  2. Come back in a while
  3. Reboot
