LXer: Fedora 9: Linux Desktop Alive and Well at Red Hat

Published at LXer:

The latest release of Red Hat's community Linux distribution, Fedora 9, a.k.a. 'Sulfur', is out. The Sulfur release adds a host of new features, including virtualization, authentication, networking, file system and yes, even features that will benefit desktop users. "All of those things really put the lie to any claims that Red Hat is abandoning the desktop," Fedora Project Leader Paul Frields said.

"adds ... new features, including ... networking" right, so there wasn't networking prior to Fedora 9?

It's just that they're not commercially interested in desktops. As in putting money in to make money.
