I am very glad to see Xen. Any experience with Xen 2?

Just installed FC4T3...

...and it's "OK", but I'm surprised with the long list of packages that are no longer on even the DVD ISO. Significant examples include abiword, aumix, bzflag, xmms, pdksh (replaced by ksh), nedit, exim, gnuchess/xboard, Maelstrom, ncftp, pan, tuxracer and tora. Yes, I know you can probably get them from Fedora Extras, but considering the DVD ISO was "only" 2.7GB, it seems a bit strange to drop so many well-known packages.

BTW, is it just me or are there now *no* 3D games at all with Fedora Core 4's install media?! We seem to be going backwards in the games department w.r.t. what ships with FC nowadays...

Maybe because you're using MD5SUM instead of SHA1SUM?
The hashes are for SHA1SUM and no more for MD5SUM, AFAIK...

GCC4 has actually shown signs of regression in performance.
I have done my own tests and found personally that GCC3.4 is slightly quicker.

Here is a Slashdot Post to back by post.

A school of Mahayana Buddhism that asserts that enlightenment can be attained through the Linux kernel, open source software, and finally getting that nVidia card to load, rather than through faith and devotion.

OMG I can't believe i missed that. I just learned something new today - I don't read carefully enough and there's a sha1sum. Thank you.
