What exactly is Fedora?


Please excuse my ignorence, but can someone please explain what exactly Fedora is technically?

Is it effectively redhat gone community developed? How is it technically different from RedHat 9? Can it be basically thought of as Red Hat 10 with new developers?

Thanks,
David

http://fedora.redhat.com answers those questions. Btw, Fedora Core 1 has been released. Get a copy at your favourite mirror site.

Should they? You can take a look at the included versions with the help of your favourite mirror of download.fedora.redhat.com, e.g.

http://mirror.dulug.duke.edu/pub/fed...s/Fedora/RPMS/
