Fedora Core 5: A review from an ex-maintainer

[16]Fedora Core 5: A review from an ex-maintainer

I've been putting this off long enough; finally I got around to upgrading my network to FC5, specifically, 1x Server, 2x Workstations and a laptop (one workstation, this one, still to do).


The Good

Fedora Core has always been a slickly presented distro, and even though they do make some odd choices occasionally, it features pretty much everything you could want out the box, proprietary stuff excluded (but that's what Fedora Extras is for).

Trojan That Deletes Illegal MP3s And Movies?

Trojan That Deletes Illegal MP3s And Movies? - So there is a Trojan out there that actively searches and destroys illegal MP3 and movies and even competing malware prgrams from the infected users system. That's the bad news. The good news is your PC will run much faster with all those MP3s, DVD rips and malware removed from your system. Hell, if you took that stuff out of some of ya'll computers, all you'd be left with is a bare OS...maybe not even that you warez monkeys!

AT&T is seeking the return of technical documents presented in a lawsuit that allegedly detail how the telecom giant helped the government set up a massive internet wiretap operation in its San Francisco facilities.

Telescopes 'worthless' by 2050

Owl, Eso

Ground-based astronomy could be impossible in 40 years because of pollution from aircraft exhaust trails and climate change, an expert says.

Aircraft condensation trails - known as contrails - can dissipate, becoming indistinguishable from other clouds.

If trends in cheap air travel continue, says Professor Gerry Gilmore, the era of ground astronomy may come to an end much earlier than most had predicted.
