Fedora Project Delivers New Linux Platform to Open Source Community

11/7/2003 - Red Hat, Inc. (Nasdaq:RHAT), the world's premier open source software provider, announced the availability of the first software release of the FedoraTM Project, Fedora Core 1.

The Fedora Project is a Red Hat-sponsored and community-supported open source project that promotes rapid development of innovative open source software through a collaborative, community effort. Fedora Core 1 provides a complete Linux platform built exclusively from open source software. Available at no cost, the release serves the needs of community developers, testers, and other technology enthusiasts who wish to participate in and accelerate the technology development process.

As a community forum for advanced development, the Fedora Project provides early visibility to the latest open source technology and serves as a proving ground for technology that may eventually make its way into Red Hat's fully-supported commercial solutions such as Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Red Hat contributes development resources, editorial direction and management to the Fedora Project.

Following this release, Red Hat and the community's efforts will turn to the development of Fedora Core 2, which will focus on the next wave of leading edge technology including the integration of the Linux 2.6 kernel. Developers and testers alike are welcome to visit fedora.redhat.com and get directly involved with building the future of Linux.
