Fedora 17 alpha KDE screen shots

Fedora 17 Dolphin File Manager

The first public step towards the release of Fedora 17, code-named Beefy Miracle, was taken yesterday with the release of Fedora 17 alpha. Live CD installation images for the main edition, which uses the GNOME 3 desktop environment, the KDE, Xfce and LXDE Spins, were released. Also released, was a DVD installation image of the main edition and a bfo image for network-based installs.

Fedora fans are encouraged to download, install and report bugs to the Fedora QA team. From the test installation of this alpha release that I have made, bug hunters will be very busy. I know I will be. Download links are available here. Some features that would be of special interest to desktop users have been listed hereMeanwhile, KDE fans can enjoy a few screen shots from a test installation.

Very interesting preview!
Fedora 17 looks very nice.
I still have to decide which one I’m going to install first: Fedora 17 or Mageia 2?

I totally agree.
With Fedora you get a continuous flow of updates (almost every day), kernels included. It depends on its nature of being cutting – edge.
Mageia is more stable. And then its life cycle will be longer (nine months).
Fedora wallpaper looks beautiful, though … 🙂
