Software Update: Fedora Core 1

Fedora Core 1 is the first release of the new Linux distribution and will also serve as the successor to Red Hat Linux. This version is divided on three stuffed CDs. The full installation needs 5.3GB of the hard drive, while the installation with the least options is 520MB in size. Core 2 is only expected if the first final of Linux kernel 2.6.0 has been released, but if the kernel takes too long, an earlier release is not excluded. Below you will find part of the release notes

The goal of the Fedora Project is to work with the Linux community to build a complete, general purpose operating system exclusively from free software. Development will be done in a public forum. The project will produce time-based releases of Fedora Core about 2-3 times a year with a public release schedule
