Fedora Core 6 (Zod) Live-Spins Released

October 25th, 2006 4 comments

Fedora Unity Project has released Fedora Core 6 LiveCDs and LiveDVDs.

A Live-Spin CD or DVD provides a “reasonably useful web browser/email/OpenOffice access,” said Jef Spaleta, long time Fedora community member. It “should be a good quick peek at what the FC6 desktops feel like … without having to do a full install.” He added, “9 out of 10 voices in my head agree: ‘Unity’s Live-Spin CD is a pretty good starting point for future live CD development.'”
