Fedora Core 2 Released
Posted on: 05/18/2004 11:15 AM

Fedora Core 2 has been released. Here the announcement:

The Fedora Project would like to thank the thousands of community members whose testing and contributions have raised the bar of quality and made this release possible.

What is the Fedora Project?

The Fedora Project is a Red Hat-sponsored and community-supported open oource project that promotes rapid development of innovative open source software through a collaborative, community effort. Fedora Core 2 provides a complete Linux platform built exclusively from open source software. Available at no cost, the release serves the needs of community developers, testers, and other technology enthusiasts who wish to participate in and accelerate the technology development process.

As a community forum for advanced development, the Fedora Project provides early visibility to the latest open source technology and serves as a proving ground for technology that may eventually make its way into Red Hat's fully-supported commercial solutions such as Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Red Hat contributes development resources, editorial direction and management to the Fedora Project.

How Can I Get Fedora Core 2?

Fedora Core 2 x86 or x86-64 Downloads are available from: http://fedora.redhat.com/download/ or from the network of mirrors in the Fedora Project distribution system. Users may prefer to download Fedora Core via BitTorrent, or via older file retrieval protocols such as HTTP, FTP, or RSYNC.

BitTorrent typically provides faster download speeds than HTTP, FTP, or RSYNC. BitTorrent RPMS for Red Hat Linux and Fedora Core are available with detailed instructions at http://torrent.linux.duke.edu/

THE BEST WAY - BITTORRENT:
