Although its officially out tomorrow, I've been using it since yesturday as a torrent turned up on digg.

If you visit #fedora they tell that its near as damnit evil to obtain it this way, but the way I look at it is it should help give the main servers less of a hammering during the mad scramble to download a new release from one of the big distros.
So far I've seeded 1.5GB, I think thats a good thing, others may not agree though.

You also run the risk of downloading dodgy iso's of course.

You also run the risk of not being able to install the nvidia drivers, from what I have read, but apparently that will be fixed with the first kernel patch.

Yep, thats true, but that wont be fixed in the iso's _officially_ made available tomorrow either.

Still, makes a change to use a version of gnome which isn't brown Smile

Well, since Fedora Core 5 has finally been released, I shall expect to see a review of it in LXF three weeks ago. Wink
