"At the heat of a thousand hot dog cookers, the seventeenth release of
Fedora shall be forged by contributors the world over, and it will be
known as: Beefy Miracle. The mustard shall indicate progress.

For six months, participants in the Fedora Project shall freely
contribute to the release of the distribution, in the spirit of the Four
Foundations -- Freedom, Friends, Features, and First -- and moreover,
they shall relish in Fun, as a community without Fun would be like a day
without sunshine.

Upon release, a free and open source operating system shall be available
to all, catering to a variety of tastes -- those of end-users, systems
administrators, and developers, with a common thread that binds them
all: No, not their love for hot dogs, silly, as we certainly know that
Fedora shall be created and used by those whose dietary preference could
be either Beefy or Leafy. Freedom, my friends, Freedom is the Great
Condiment, which shall enable all users of the Beefy Miracle to Create,
Share, and Do."

-- The Book of Sauerkraut, Chapter 12, Verse 529

The Beefy Miracle hath arrived. Behold, for it is available to download now:

I don't think the name Beefy Miracle is a good name for community made distro. There are many people in the world, who won't eat animal flesh, so for them that name would be very distressing. There are countries in the world such as India, whose people won't even think of killing a cow. Some of these Vegans might say that they are using Fedora 17, but never a Beefy Miracle.

7.3 Million Americans Are Vegetarians and an additional 22.8 Million Follow a Vegetarian-Inclined Diet!

It won't be a miracle to the cow or the Bull, would it?:dis:

Please don't double post - although in this case I do not think it is against the forum rules it is against the spirit of them. Also the forum rules do not permit political posts, and this would class as one.

Sorry!
I made a mistake.

Well, there was a big deal over them choosing the Beefy Miracle name, but all they did was "vote" on keeping release names in the future, doing nothing about the name that caused the problems.

Not very professional in my opinion, but then again, you know how opinions are...

As this announcement has done its job, and the rest of this seems to be going south faster than a duck in November ...

Thread mercifully closed.
