Ubuntu certainly steals the show for end users but on the enterprise side it is Red Hat’s that is the star, with Fedora being its flavour more suited to personal use. A brand new release has arrived today, which will give home sysadmins a bit of work to test for compatibility with their current systems. Thankfully the base kernel has not changed much, this release deals with patches that have been fully tested over the past six months along with updates to the software which comes with Fedora. The Inquirer makes mention of Ovirt, a virtual machine management program, JBoss Application Server 7 and enhancements in Openstack, all of which should be well received by professionals. They will also be happy to know that Red Hat’s Beefy Miracle has stuck with the Gnome interface instead of switching to Unity.
"The Red Hat sponsored Fedora project serves as the proving ground for new features that eventually end up in the firm’s Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) operating system. Now Red Hat has announced that it has released Fedora 17 including updates to Gnome, Eclipse, GIMP and Openstack along with numerous patches."
