                             Jack Aboutboul
                             Fedora  Core 5

     Fedora Core, the followup to the old Red Hat Linux line of distros
     after RH9, is an operating system and platform, first released in
     2003, and is the central Fedora project. It is always free for
     anyone to use, modify, and distribute, now and forever.

     Hot on the heels of the recent release of Fedora Core 5, Fedora
     Ambassador (and NYLUG member) Jack Aboutboul will present about
     the Fedora Project, Fedora Core 5, the Fedora vision, and its
     community.  Fedora is making leaps in terms of improvements with
     each new release, and its community is growing larger and more
     active all the time.

     Among the new features of FC5 are the inclusion of the Mono .NET
     framework, Beagle (formerly Dashboard) search tool, the latest
     versions of Gnome and KDE, new stack protection capabilities, and
     Xen virtualization technology.

     Among other high-profile, high-load sites, Fedora largely powers
     the WikiMedia sites.
