No more Fedora Core?

January 6, 2007

I ran across this RSS title from this morning. Feeling sad for FC, which is my first Linux distribution. I was attracted by the blue-style of FC before touching Linux. However, a close look into the article seems this a “joke”, here is the link.

Starting with Fedora 7, there is no more Core, and no more Extras; there is only Fedora. One single repository, built in the community on open source tools, assembled into whatever spins the Fedora community desires.

Is this a word game just like rename “Fedora Core” into “Fedora”? At least, it seems nothing differnt to me. I think there is one thing for sure, there is no more the name of “Fedora Core”, not Fedora Core.
