Experiment: Update Fedora Core 4 Test 1

Fedora Core 4 Test 1 went on the test machine 2 days ago.  However, mrs.devnet has done little testing as of yet.  Real life issues have taken over.  For those that don’t know…I’m currently active duty military and am separating from the service this month.  As you probably could guess, this means we’ll be moving soon as well as changing employers.  Mrs.devent has been furiously planning our move whilst I am looking for employment in the Richmond, VA – Washington, DC area.  So there hasn’t been a ton of development on the experiment.  I have spoken to her and she promises action on the last two distributions…FC4 test 1 and Ubuntu-current…within the next week.  Sorry for our readers…but of course, family will come first.  So expect Fedora Core 4 Test 1 to post sometime this next weekend and Ubuntu the following week.  Of course, as promised, we’ll take another look at the top 2 and pit them head-to-head against one another.  Then we’ll crown the winner.  Thus far, PCLinuxOS is in the lead with 10 out of 10 points awarded and SimplyMEPIS is right behind with 8 out of 10.  Stay tuned this weekend for mrs.devnet’s review.

On an positive note for the site, I’ll be going hosted soon.  I host this webpage on my own server at home and we’ve been getting many hits on the site which taxes my whole entire connection (time warner cable).  To combat this, I am purchasing a domain and webhost plan.  Look for those changes to happen in May.  There will be little if any downtime…just enough for the nameservers to change over.  Thanks again for reading!
