"If you've never given Fedora a try, now is a great time," writes Channel Register's Scott Gilbertson. "The tenth revision [is] slick and stable and it has a rock solid feel to it that, for our money, trumps even Ubuntu's latest release. Fedora 10 has many of the features we loved in Ubuntu – the latest version of GNOME and the new NetworkManager utility, for instance. As a bonus you also get the always excellent RPM package system, the new Empathy instant messenger framework, PackageKit and host of other Fedora-specific tools."
"One of the most significant new features in Fedora 10 is glitch-free PulseAudio (PA)," writes Ars Technica's Ryan Paul. "The PA sound server – which was originally included in Fedora 8 – brings a whole new set of modern capabilities to the Linux audio stack and has important features like support for controlling the volume of individual audio streams, moving audio streams between devices, and outputting audio streams simultaneously to multiple devices. It also has some really impressive advanced capabilities, like dynamic volume adjustment and network transparent stream redirection using Avahi for network autodiscovery."
"Fedora is produced with the assistance of Red Hat, and is basically a derivative of Red Hat Enterprise Linux," notes ZDNet's J.A. Watson. "As such, users who already have RHEL on corporate systems, for example, might find this a very interesting option."
"If you've not tried Fedora, or have moved away from it in the past, then you should definitely take a look – existing users will be rubbing their hands with glee over this solid release," writes Linux Format's M. Saunders.
