    According to Wikipedia there's two versions of the D programming language: 1.0 and 2.0, does anyone know which version is Fedora bundling?

    What a pity, no GNOME Live CD. Only DVDs.

    Ah, okay thanks. Firefox says 704MB for the AMD64 version, I'll give it a try.

    I've never actually understood the purpose behind a 64bit livecd... a 64bit CPU can run the 32bit livecd perfectly well, and it isn't like you're going to use it as your primary desktop -- just in emergency situations, where you want to maximize compatibility (i.e. in case you happen to sit behind a machine with a genuine 32bit CPU).

    Fedora use D1, why?
    • D2 is not stable
    • any free compiler support yet D2 (LDC the best than GDC)
    • standard runtime library tango are working for D2 support


    You can start a project using D1 and later upgrade your code to D2 is a little works.

    All C++ programmer can help ldc project
    All people can help tango for D support (written in D)

    It looks like systemd will be defered to F15. This was decided at the Meeting FESCO meeting see here.
    The response of a developer who worked a lot on systemd is also interesting, here.

    I can't remember the last time I burned a CD. Using a USB drive is so much easier, faster and silent.

    I agree 100%. But unfortunately, although there about a gazillion options to boot from USB in my bios, none of them actually work. So I'm doomed to use optical media.

    Back on topic, any reason why gcc isn't included on the Live CD? AFAIK even Ubuntu includes it on their Live CD.
