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  It's not for general home users.
GNOME 2.6 has been released today; check out the release notes at
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
 If you don't set SELinux up right, and FC2t2 is a test release, things
don't run. You might not want it!
