Developers Make a Good Call With Fedora Talk

,----[ Quote ]
| While the rest of the world is knee-deep in webinars, Skype-based
| teleconferences, and other "Web 2.0"-ish forms of real time communication,
| most of the Linux community still relies on IRC, wikis, and opt-in email
| lists to get things done. At FUDCon last month, the Fedora community
| announced a new way of helping members and developers communicate with each
| other: Fedora Talk
| Fedora Talk is a new telephony system based on the free voice VoIP project
| Asterisk. Using any standard VoIP hardware or software, Fedora contributors
| can sign into the system and use it to make or receive calls to other Fedora
| contributors anywhere in the world.

Fedora 9 - an OS that even the Linux challenged can love

| The new KDE look, dubbed Oxygen, is very slick, some might even say
| beautiful. Fedora is the first major distro to ship with KDE 4 enabled by
| default, but thankfully KDE 4 does support older applications that haven't
| yet been ported. Such apps won't be able to take advantage of the new
| features, but at least you can use them until new versions are released.
| Fedora 9 also marks the first release under Paul Frields, Fedora project
| leader at Red Hat, who took over for longtime Fedora maintainer Max Spivak
| earlier this year. Fedora has also revamped its board slightly making the
| distro a more community-managed affair. The majority of the Fedora board is
| now made up of community elected members.
