Fedora 17 Beta now available

With some delay over the original project timelines, Fedora 17 Beta becomes available two weeks after its intended release date. Those interested in getting a fresh taste of the latest from this distro should get a fairly stable experience out of it, as is usually the case with Fedora Betas. Needless to say, I mean stable for testing purposes, as in getting a taste of Beefy Miracle without the hassle of getting a crash every 5 minutes, certainly not stable as in finished-product-stable.

For further details on this Beta release, please check the OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT. For more information about Fedora 17 features, check my post HERE.

  1. I haven't yet tried the beta but the alpha release was unbelievably resource heavy and slow. I've got a fairly hefty 2011 Dell laptop and it was using 30% CPU at idle! Didn't bother looking what was driving it but just went straight back to F16.
