Good review, but this is a bit inaccurate:

        "... Red Hat has pushed out the beta release of Fedora 9
        (codenamed Sulphur) with many more features implemented and
        ready to be tested."

At least, "Red Hat and the Fedora community have ..." would be more
accurate.  But since Red Hat is just a (really big) contributor to
Fedora, saying Fedora community would be 100% accurate.
