Liftoff

May 26, 2010 1 comment

I’m sure they don’t do things like this at NASA: At the moment, I’m downloading Fedora 13 while listening to Neil Young (“Unknown Legend,” for those of you keeping score at home) while wondering if that cloud bank is going to clear the hills to the north — my money says “no.”

Fedora 13, code named Goddard, cleared the tower and streaked into the FOSS heavens yesterday, on the day I returned from Fedora Ambassador Day in Iowa. So now we go from trains to spacecraft . . .

For the last few weeks, I’ve been running Fedora 13 Beta on the trusty long-in-the-tooth Fujitsu laptop, which I don’t want to part with since the screen is probably the best I’ve ever seen on any machine. It has run flawlessly so far — so much so that I’m thinking about leaving the beta on here and just going forward.

But, no: I’ll install and give a report, since that’s what you’d expect. See you in a bit.
