Red Hat releases Fedora 8 Linux

  • Red Hat's Fedora today debuted a major new release that in many ways offers more than any previous version of the community Linux effort. That's because Fedora 8, codenamed "Werewolf," is actually more than just a single release of a single distribution. In addition to a myriad of new features, the release offers at least four different custom versions, or "spins" as Fedora calls them. The spins included in the Fedora 8 release offer packages targeted to specific users like developers and even game players.
