I just finished downloading the 32-bit Fedora 13 DVD (3.1GB) as well as the LXDE spin (548MB) which I will try later on my old AMD X2 4400+ based rig and Compaq Presario M2000 series notebook respectively.

A brief description of the new features are written here, and the full release notes here. Earlier I was thinking of the PreUpgrade option for my Fedora 12 Desktop but now I would like to go for the clean-install instead.

And yes I mentioned LXDE “spin” a while ago. There are now Spins, which are alternate versions of Fedora, on different application sets and customized for various types of users, like the Ubuntu Derivatives.

For those who are new to Fedora, Fedora is a Linux-based operating system that showcases the latest in free and open source software. Fedora is always free for anyone to use, modify, and distribute. It is built by people across the globe who work together as a community: the Fedora Project. The Fedora Project is open and anyone is welcome to join. The Fedora Project is out front for you, leading the advancement of free, open software and content.

I can’t wait to go home and do the test drive. If you want to download Fedora then you may simply click on the image posted above, or go visit the official website. Cheers to all!

I was able to attend half of the webinar on Sudo Revealed…, hosted by Linux Magazine and BeyondTrust. We may not need this in our organization right now but I believe this commercial application may come handy in the future thus I am keeping this in my files. If the host (LM) will send the presentation slides then in will share them here. For the meantime you may look at the PowerBroker page as well as the associated whitepapers.

Sudo Revealed: The Good, Bad and Ugly of Open Source Privileged Identity Management

Many organizations have attempted to use open source sudo as their privileged identity management solution. While sudo might be a viable solution for small scale organizations, CSOs managing large IT environments are consistently discovering that sudo creates security, compliance and productivity challenges to large enterprises seeking to protect critical assets.

In this webinar, we will discuss how an open source solution like sudo can work in smaller scale enterprises, but can cause security hindrances and risks for larger scale companies, including the vulnerability of sudo-protected data by hackers. By stepping back and looking at the good, the bad and the ugly of the sudo solution, enterprises will learn that sudo represents an illusion of control over access to a company’s critical assets and understand the true cost of “free.”

Samba allows Linux, Windows, and Mac to communicate with one another, but it has a reputation for being tricky to configure and administer. Here are some ways to reduce Samba headaches.

I was able to launch Space Invaders in my fedora box, with OpenOffice.0rg 3.1.1 (310m19), screenshot below:

All I did was:

Put =GAME(“StarWars”) into any cell and press ENTER. A version of Space Invaders is playable. Although if you try to play it again, the message “oh no, not again” appears. To play again, you must fully close OpenOffice.org.

Though there is a post regarding the removal of the module “goodies” related to the said Space Invaders game on DEV300_m72.

Feel free to try. Cheers to all!
