Fedora 17



KDE DESKTOP


Fedora Gnome desktop

GNOME DESKTOP

   One can test Fedora with a live CD, then install it if you wish. This is the stripped version and one must
upgrade the installation to get a good system. The other option is to install from the DVD to get the full
version. CAREFUL. During the install make sure you change the default "Customize later" to "Customize
now". If you miss this, you will get the Gnome desktop only and many programs will be missing.

    Fedora is the development program for Red Hat so it is quite complete, however, it is not overly user
friendly, so you need a fair amount of knowledge to get everything working, and time to learn how to use it.

   Our group has created some simple installation and user instructions. Accuracy is not
guaranteed, however, if you want a copy, send an e-mail to one of our contacts requesting it.
