Fedora 14 beta released today, aimed as a tablet operating system
Fedora 14 will be officially available in November. Today's new beta
supports MeeGo and desktop virtualization
By Julie Bort

The much anticipated beta of Fedora 14 was released today, with the
final code to be ready in November. It included a few features that may
surprise you. For one, it lets users opt for a MeeGo look and feel. For
another, it supports Red Hat's new desktop virtualization technology.
Taken together, it seems as if Fedora is making itself more useful for
the rising tablet market.

Fedora 14, nicknamed "Laughlin," will be the first Red Hat supported
distribution to let users choose MeeGo
<http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/MeeGo_1.0> as their desktop.
MeeGo is a Linux desktop architecture for mobile devices, netbooks,
embedded Linux devices (such as In Vehicle Infotainment systems). It is
based in the GNOME mobile platform but has been beefed up with
additional technologies (Clutter, GUPnP and libsocialweb). Fedora 14
will include the MeeGo Netbook UX specifically for netbook users as a
"user environment that sits of top of Fedora and associated MeeGo core
services. The netbook user interface and user interaction model for the
target devices then is on top of that. ... This expands on the existing
support we've had for Moblin in Fedora 12 and 13. "
