I'll be extremely keen to get my hands on FC2 once the final is released.  But I think I'll stay away from the test releases.

Fedora Core 2 test 2 has been released; if you're interested in a copy a
couple of local people have it.  Post to the list, perhaps (I haven't got my
copy just yet, so don't ask me direct).  Warning, it's for testing, it
breaks things [1]  It's not for general home users.

GNOME 2.6 has been released today; check out the release notes at
http://www.gnome.org/start/2.6/notes/ or some screenshots at
hots/html/  FC2 will have Gnome 2.6, but seeing as it came out a couple of
days ago, it's only running 2.5rc.

Fedora Core 2 comes with SELinux installed and enabled by default.  SELinux
is the NSA's patches for the Linux kernel to provide Mandatory Access
Control - a way to, for example, lock your web server so it can't run
anything outside of the commands apache uses and requires.  There's a FAQ on
it at http://www.crypt.gen.nz/selinux/faq.html, or a good general
introduction can be found at


[1] If you don't set SELinux up right, and FC2t2 is a test release, things
don't run.  You might not want it!
