Fedora 11, the latest version of the popular Linux distribution, has been officially released. We took it for a test and found that it has a lot to offer, but it's also got some icky bugs.

 The developers behind the popular Fedora Linux distribution announced this week the official release of version 11, codenamed Leonidas. This release introduces some significant new features but it also comes with some unfortunate bugs, particularly in the installer.

Fedora tends to ride the cutting edge of desktop Linux technology and is often the first distribution to include new upstream features. This makes Fedora a compelling choice for developers and Linux enthusiasts who like to stay ahead of the curve. The downside of dogfooding the latest stuff is that users occasionally have to contend with a release that is slightly undercooked. Fedora 11 isn't raw but it falls short of well done.
