I don’t “review” alpha releases, but I’m very much looking forward to Fedora 12, it’s alpha spin was released today. Currently scheduled for early November, even with some pushback I would expect it out by Christmas, probably thanksgiving. Fedora 12 has a large changelog and feature list, a few big ones based on upstream changes to Gnome, KDE, etc. Last night I downloaded the 64bit live CD and installed it on a virtual machine for some testing. Sometimes working with beta software I forget it’s beta software; so many stable products and distros are beta. Alpha is a whole different ball game. I don’t suggest installing any alpha release on your primary desktop. It’s best left as a testing release for those of us who file bugs. If you want a preview, download the live CD and either boot it live on your computer (without installing) or install it on a virtual box. For my testing I’m using virtualbox on an AMD quad core with 8gb of ram and a nvidia video card. The Virtual machine is set to 2GB of ram, 2 processors, and 64mb video ram (3d acceleration turned on). My base settings for testing Linux distros.
