Fedora Linux 8 hits back at Ubuntu

The Red Hat-sponsored Fedora Linux project has released version 8 of its operating system with a host of new features aimed at raising the bar over rival Ubuntu.

Based on version 2.6.23 of the Linux kernel, Fedora 8 includes the recently released GNOME 2.20 desktop environment and the new Nodoka theme created for this release.

The desktop user experience is certainly a focus of the 8 release with the Online Desktop application aiming to unify the many online services, and Compiz Fusion, the compositing and 3D effects window manager, is installed by default.

Fedora's art team has created "Infinity" for a new look and feel with the release.
