Calling for Desktop Environment artists, users and developers

Fedora Core 6 artwork is completed. Now Artwork team is focusing on Fedora Core 7. As Artwork team is working on Echo icons, we need more participation from different desktop environments (From KDE to XFCE) users/developers in order to test Echo icons. People using DE not including in Fedora Extras like Enlightement are also welcome to join.

We also considering to revamp the GTK theme to take advantage of Cairo backend engine so we need to get mockups for comparison. It does not have to be like a glass theme as something that is really original is welcome too.

Interested people can join the mail list at http://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/fedora-art-list.

Running OLPC emulator

Running the OLPC interface emulator via QEMU. The system booted under 10 seconds with most of services disabled. The interface is very simple without some tooltips due to its works in progress nature.





It will be a matter of time where future version of Fedora will hugely benefit from OLPC in term of memory and light weight.

Canonical seeks profit from free Ubuntu

The Canonical mimicking previous attempts years ago.

Canonical decided to take approach Red Hat, Suse and Mandriva tried five years ago. While that strategy might work in short term, the quality and the support will suffer at the long term because the staff will be overstreched and there will be a significant loss of money. It takes years to get a certifications on enterprise level.
