Fedora Truns 10............

                  "It was ten years ago this past Sunday September 22nd, that the Red Hat sponsored Fedora project was born. The first Fedora release didn't come until six weeks later in November of 2003. Over the last 10 years the project has transformed itself from being entirely controlled by Red Hat to being a true community effort. In a video interview, the current Fedora Project Leader, Robyn Bergeron talks about the past and the future of Fedora. 'We need to think about how we're actually making the sausage,' Bergeron said. 'I think we can try and abstract and automate the things we have to do a lot, so our really awesome people's brains can be applied to solving problems that aren't yet automate-able.'"
Ten years ago, Red Hat changed its business model, ending its Red Hat Linux product and launching the Fedora Core community Linux distribution in its stead. The Fedora Project was officially born Sept. 22, 2003, and Red Hat Linux officially drew its last breath in 2004 as a supported offering. Fedora has been the only free non-enterprise Linux release from Red Hat ever since. From a commercial standpoint, Red Hat Enterprise Linux is Red Hat's flagship platform and in many respects, its continued success today is due in part to the success of Fedora over the last 10 years. Many features that land in a Red Hat Enterprise Linux release are first proven by community use in Fedora. In a video interview with eWEEK, Fedora Project Leader Robyn Bergeron reflects on 10 years of Fedora and discusses what the future might hold. Bergeron noted that Fedora has shaped the lives of those that have participated in the project's development. She also commented that over the last 10 years, acceptance of open source has also grown to now become the standard model for technology development. - See more at: http://www.eweek.com/enterprise-apps/fedora-linux-turns-10-whats-next.html#sthash.wfQpJFr3.dpuf
