Fedora 9(Sulphur) Released

Fedora 9 has been released – I have been waiting for this. For those of you who don’t know, Fedora is my distro of choice. I have been using Fedora since Fedora Core 3. And I will be upgrading to the latest release as soon as I get my hands on it.

Fedora 9 Launch

I have started the download – but I have a 256kbps internet connection – and it will take around 4 days for the download to complete. After the install, I will write a review on it. I can’t wait to see the new KDE!

I have began a process of backing up my data so that nothing will be lost during the upgrade. No matter how careful I am, I always manage to loose something in the upgrade. Yeah, I know – Murphy’s Law. I hate Murphy. I am waiting to see what I loose this time. Last time it was my database. Luckily I was able to restore it from my backup – but the data entered after the backup was lost.

Fedora and Me: A History

  1. Hehe, it is the bane of Indians to be stuck on 256 Kbps “broadband”.

    Atleast you’re not on a 150 Kbps line as I am (will get 512 Kbps in June, as a silver lining in the cloud 😛 )

    I’m wondering – why aren’t you using Ubuntu, or maybe Gentoo (if you’re that adventurous)?

  2. I was on Fedora for a long time – I have not seriously thought of moving away. But its not due to loyalty – I am a fan of KDE and not the distro.

    I like Gentoo – its the recommended distro for KDE. But its repository is not as large as Debian or Fedora. And Ubuntu is not an option for me – it uses Gnome.

    Now Kubuntu – yes, I have had some thoughts about that one.

  3. iam new user to fedora. I installed fedora 9 in my system after complete installation and normally reebooted but my system strucks after all start ups.I used interactive setup also but no use.

    The same prblm occurs while using fedora 8 but i used interactive setup.then disabling the irq balance option in the start up . then it works fine.
    please help me by giving u r valuable suggestion for me to work with my system with fedora 9 plzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
