    Default Fedora 8 Test 2

    Phoronix: Fedora 8 Test 2

    Fedora 8 Test 2 hit the web this morning and accompanying this release are now four LiveCD images. There is the traditional Fedora Live CD version followed by a KDE version and now there is a developer Live edition and FEL. FEL is short for Fedora Electronic Lab and is designed to be a LiveCD edition for those engineers working on electronics. Anyhow, Fedora 8 Test 2 features the latest test release in the GNOME 2.19 series, is based upon the Linux 2.6.23 kernel, and PulseAudio is now used as the advanced sound server. These days the Fedora project isn't generating as much buzz as Ubuntu, but Fedora 8 Test 2 is certainly worth checking out for any Red Hat enthusiasts and those wishing to live on the bleeding edge. If there's one thing to enjoy about Fedora 8, the artwork improvements since Fedora 7 are absolutely great!

    The artwork is amazing. I was one of the first that downloaded it. I will install the Gnome (and perhaps the KDE version, too) tomorrow. Fedora 8 + RPM Fusion will own Broke-U-buntu once again.

    Looks fantastic. But does anyone know when the icon theme is going to be changed? Some icons like the ones from OpenOffice.org look like Fedora 1, very bad. They wanted to replace it with Echo with Fedora 6 I think. I've heard that Echo is not ready but that they want to change it to another icon theme for Fedora 8. Does anyone have details?
