The new Fedora 10 Beta has been released, be sure to grab that release and start beta testing!
I like the fact that they’ve come up with a beta contest, if you test the software and find 5 bugs *and* report them you can win free attention of a package maintainer on a problem personally important to you!
Although I believe that some Fedora goodies would give better results, the concept is still appealing
