 It's about time a distribution gets a Greek codename! And Fedora 11 is
entitled "Λεονίδας"[?]


  Among the thousands of users that follow and use Fedora in their everyday
home or office desktop (or server), they are considered one of the few
"fronts" that support free software and are always (or most of the time) one
step ahead of Ubuntu (in my opinion), when it comes to using the newest,
shiniest, top-of-the-line software. [?]

Fedora 11 has been improved in the following areas:
 * software management
 * sound
 * improves key virtualization components
 * introduces Fedora Community, a portal project beta

ahead and recorded more changes:

 * New fingerprint reader support that makes biometric support easy and
 * Automatic font and mimetype installation that downloads support as needed
for foreign-language documents and other content types
 * New IBus input method system that makes it easy to switch locales without
having to restart a session
 * Improved kernel modesetting features for more video cards, including many
models of Intel, ATI and NVidia
 * Support for the latest filesystems like ext4, with much higher device and
file size limits, and faster consistency checking
 * Improved virtualization features such as a more flexible and interactive
console, and a rewritten VM creation wizard
 * MinGW cross-compiler tool set for creating Windows executables using the
Fedora distribution

 * GCC 4.4
 * Python 2.6 as default
 * NetBeans 6.5
