Post My Late Birthday Present Wishlist : Fedora Core 7

Hello everyone, Happy Holidays to everyone!

By the time Fedora Core 7 comes out, it will
be around my 35th birthday and what I
want in Fedora Core 7......

1. Windoze Vista-Like Interface based on both KDE and GNOME
2. Older Windoze Games Support i.e. games designed for Windows 95/98/2000
3. Songbird Integration, the open source alternative to itunes based on Mozilla
4. OpenOffice 3.0, Firefox 3.0, GAIM 2.0, NVU 2.0 or a great alternative to NVU
5. PDF Printer for non OpenOffice Applications
6. LCARS Theme in honor of Star Trek's 40th anniversary

Take care, my fellow Fedora peers!

Sounds like an excellent birthday present! The release of fc6 was scheduled to come out on my birthday this year... but of course it slipped.

What exactly are you looking for here? I've been using Vista and personally I like some of the interface things of XGL and Beryl better than I do Vista's Aero interface.

Wrong project, ask Wine HQ for that.

Anybody willing to port it on Extras repository minus proprietary codecs?

OpenOffice 3.0 will be a long way depending the development. Firefox 3.0 will be included on Fedora Core 7 because its much Linux needed support i.e the use of Cairo engine. Gaim 2.0: it will be up to their developers.

5. PDF Printer for non OpenOffice Applications
Try using gutenprint driver from Extras repository. It came too late to be included on Fedora Core 6 but it will be the default for Fedora Core 7.

As for Gaim 2.0, FC6 already has 2.0 betas, so that's in.

1. Here is the problem. people DO in fact want Linux to act lie windows. So it has tio look like Windows. Heck I skin my KDE distro to look like Windows XP cuz that's what makes me feel comtable. Yes change is good but not all at once. I figure if you make Linux look more like Windows than more will ditch Windows.

2. More distros need to help out the WINE project. Windows games SHOULD run in Linux no question about it. That's the biggest hurdle for new users myself included.

3. I'd rather see Apple release iTunes for Linux.

4 and 5 - Not much to say on those subjects.

The only problem with the windows interface is that the current fedora desktop with desktop effects is better then Windows Vista has. So we shouldn't go backwards just to please windows fans.

I would like more people to discover linux but I don't want us going backwards. Vista being largely a joke no WinFs (Which was supposed to be the new major feature file system) and the glass theme heavy on hardware and less effects than Aiglx/Compiz.

So I think they will come to linux cause we have it goin on.

Well you think Linux has it going on. Why is it then that windows is easier to skin and looks better?

Linux isn't going backwards. They are catching up to a sleek DE like the Windows DE.

BTW the current FC with desktop effects looks ugly to me. GNOME always does. Weather it be XP or Vista both look better out of the box than Fedora.

Well seriously we will have to agree to disagree, I think Fedora whether Gnome or KDE looks heaps better than windows, and it must cause my girlfriend (windows refugee) now happily sits down and uses it, with no troubles at all. The Desktop effects in Fedora operates on a wider range of Hardware than Vista and has more functionality. That means I wont have to spend $2000 upgrading my computer to be Vista compatible and get less than I have now with Fedora.

Thatś a saving of time and money I can take to the bank.

Fedora is far more functional. Functional for me that is, I had a windows Partition (XP) but got rid of it cause I never switched to use it, all my apps in linux were more configurable to what I wanted and more effective as a result.

If I was to upgrade the only new non linux OS that interests me is Mac Leopard which I can run of the new intel chips. Leopard Preview

If you want Windows, just use it. It's expensive, but so is hardware.

You don't seem to value freedom and openness much, so I am sure you would be much happier with Windows. It's a decent, popular operating system that acts just like Windows.

Not expensive. My OeM copy was free with my old system. I do value freedom and openess. It just so happens Windows plays and deals with my hardware and software better than Linux.
