Omega: Fedora For The Rest of Us

As a part of my three months using Fedora trial, I have written an article for Linux Magazine about Remixes and Omega in particular.

Omega is a Remix of Fedora which includes the RPM Fusion repositories and GStreamer plugins for multimedia codecs by default. It also ships with all the latest updates at the time of release.

  • are you going to write up a review?

  • Awww.. maybe? It’s Fedora.. just with some extra repositories so I’m not sure what it would prove. Currently there are no helper tools like under Ubuntu to automatically detect when a piece of hardware can use a proprietary driver, but the RPM Fusion people are thinking about implementing some. Perhaps when this happens, it would be worth a closer look.

    As for Fedora itself, I’ll be posting my findings from time to time on my blog. Got a fresh install to do on my machine at home shortly, so no doubt that will uncover something interesting :-)

  • I know it’s not as fashionable as the *buntus but I love Fedora – perhaps because my first Linux was RH4. Although I’ve used Debian based distros the RH way of doing things just seems ingrained now!
