Early Look At Fedora Core 2

While “preview” might be a better word than “review” this look at Fedora Core 2 is the first one I’ve seen: LXer: Review of Fedora Core 2 test 1
Here’s yet another: Fedora Core 2-test1: A Good Start Down a Long Road
One of the things that Fedora Core 2 will get us that version 1 didn’t is a move from the 2.4 Linux kernel to 2.6. 2.6 has both speed and memory improvements and that’s cool. But what really has me jazzed is that the schedule for Gnome (the default interface that Fedora uses) shows that 2.6 of that will be released at the end of March so it might make it into the Fedora Core 2. The double improvement of a new kernel and Gnome improvements will make for a really nice OS upgrade.

    I was wondering, if one was to install a new version of Fedora Core, say 2.0, which files would one want to back up (ie. contact lists from Mozilla etc..) and where would one find them? Might make a good article.
