The Amazing Fedora Core 4!



Ladies and Gentlemen:

You may have *thought* you were using the latest and greatest in open
source software, but folks, today we have something really, really
exciting for you.

It purrs.  It hums.  It mesmerizes.  It is ...

FEDORA CORE FOUR

That's right, the premier open source operating system has just turned
4 -- four releases that is!  But before we tell you how much this is
going to cost, here are a few of the fabulous features:

* GNOME 2.10 

  With the elegant Clearlooks theme, descendent of our old friend
  Bluecurve.  Keep your eyes open for Evince, the new PDF viewer.

* OpenOffice.org 2.0 prerelease.  

  This popular office productivity suite handles all your favorite
  formats even better than before, and comes with a new database
  management capability.

* Eclipse and a 100% open source Java stack.  Gcj, need we say more?

* Fedora Extras 

  Extras packages are available, by default, at release time.  Extras
  is now integrated into the development, testing, and release cycles.

* KDE 3.4

  Complete desktop packed with a web browser, mail client, and so much more.

* PPC (PowerPC) 

  PPC architecture support.  Oh, yes, folks, Fedora Core on your PPC.
  It is downright amazing!

All of that, yes, all of that.  But, wait!, before you reach for your
wallet, you should hear about a few more of Fedora Core 4's fabuluous
features:

* Fedora Core is developed by the Fedora Project.  This amazing group
  of people love to promote the rapid development of innovative open
  source software through a collaborative, community effort.  Led by
  our old friends at Red Hat and featuring the tireless work of
  thousands of developers, packagers, testers, fixers, documenters,
  and users, Fedora Core 4 provides a complete Linux platform built
  exclusively from open source software.

  Let me say that again.

  Fedora Core is a complete Linux platform that is 100% open source.
  No mud in these waters, friends!

  One of Fedora Core's main objectives is to serve the needs of
  community developers, testers, and other technology enthusiasts who
  wish to participate in and accelerate the technology development
  process.  But you know what?  We aren't exclusive. We want you
  involved, too, whoever you are:

  http://fedora.redhat.com/participate

  You might surprise yourself.
 
  The Fedora Project pioneers leading edge technology and concepts
  that are sponsored by Red Hat and supported by the Fedora community.
  At this moment, Red Hat is pretty much in charge, folks.  There's no
  denying that.  But look around you!  There is change a'happening.
  Right now, Red Hat and the Fedora community have begun the creation
  of the Fedora Foundation.

Ok, folks, now I'm sure you are thinking this is going to cost you a
lot of money and release of personal liberties.

How much do you think it costs?  US$499 a box set?  No.  US$99 a seat?
No.  A nickel a megabyte of RAM? No.

Fedora Core 4 is 100% unconditionally free.  Free of restrictions.
And, oh, yes, free of cost.
