Exam week and Fedora

February 26th, 2007 at 2:56 am


I have been trying to balance studying for exams and work on final assignments with free time and playing in the new snow that has fallen :). I just wanted to put up a quick post since I have been spending quite a bit of time in my test install of Fedora 7. In the recent couple weeks, it has begun to look like Fedora's next release (though delayed a few weeks) will be much more of an improvement than Ubuntu's next release. This excites me since I have been a Fedora fan since the Core 2 release. To tease you, I thought I should post a couple screenshots from Parallels of the new graphics that recently were added to the development repositories. Take a look after the break.

A lot of people really liked Fedora Core 6's DNA theme, but this hot air balloon and clouds look is growing on me. It is quite fun to find new things added to Fedora 7 on a nearly daily basis. It makes rebooting fun for a change since I never know what tiny new feature will surprise me after I start up again. Development has hit a bit of a lull as they are preparing to release Test 2 in the next few days. Thankfully, that should be after my exams are over, so it shouldn't distract me too much.

    One could argue that that is because Ubuntu is already ahead =P

    What is Fedora basing their bootsplash off of now?

    btw, there is altogether too much blue in those screenshots 😉
