Fedora 9: Linux Desktop Alive and Well at Red Hat

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.

The new Fedora is the first under the direction of Fedora Project Leader Paul Frields, who took the helm in February of this year. Fedora 9 is an important release for Red Hat, as it serves to underscore Red Hat's commitment to community Linux development and toward the Linux desktop.

Earlier this year, Red Hat revealed that it would not be offering a paid commercial version of Linux for the consumer desktop. Some media outlets erroneously reported that Red Hat was abandoning the Linux desktop, which is not the case.
