Red Hat and Fedora

Red Hat Fedora
  • Fedora LiveUSB Creator artwork
    As my first job as Red Hat design intern I received from Mo a task to create some icons for Fedora LiveUSB Creator. The liveusb-creator is a cross-platform tool for easily installing live operating systems on to USB flash drives. A Live USB system stored on flash memory, sometimes called a stick, lets you boot any USB-bootable computer into a Fedora operating system environment without writing to that computer’s hard disk.
  • LINE Messenger on Linux
  • Bodhi in Fedora 23 is Ready
  • Got the issue resolved and back to work after exams :)
    And also according to the feedback it has also been suggested to use a footer similar to the one in getfedora.org. Hence the modified design of the footer is also depicted in the mockups below. And as always feedback on these are welcome.
  • Please sign off your patches
    One aspect of open source that appeals to many people is the idea that anyone can contribute. All it takes is a great idea, a little bit of work, and you can have fame, glory, and more conference t-shirts than you know what to do with. The reality is often not quite as simple for many reasons. A common complication is software licencing. There are plenty of other locations talking about open source software licencing and the complications there of so this one will be narrowly focused and have a simple request: When submitting patches for the Linux kernel, whether to official kernel mailings lists or to Fedora, please remember sign off your patches.
