Fedora 14

Filed under
Linux

Although most of the distributions I have reviewed on here before are completely new to me, Fedora and I have met before. Back in 2007 or 2008, when I first found out that there was more than one distribution of linux, I bought a book called Linux for Dummies. In this book was a DVD, which contained Fedora 7. I installed it on my laptop, but I never really got into it.

So when I decided to review Fedora again, I was really eager to see how things had changed. I was certainly not disappointed. This distro and I might be spending more time together for a while if things keep going this well!

The Desktop

With the installation going without a hitch, it was time to take a look at the desktop. Although it’s not that different from what it looked like back when I was using Fedora 7, there are some changes. Now, features such as “Jelly-like windows” and the workspace switching “Cube” make it kinda fun to use the desktop, and it certainly rivals the aesthetic qualities of Mac OS X. In fact, one of the features lets you view all the opened window at once, just like Expose (a GUI feature in OS X.)
