Fedora 11 Is BACK!

I discovered yesterday after deciding to check in on the state of Fedora 11 on aluminum MacBooks that they have the trackpad working now! And it doesn’t even require any editing of fdi policy files, it Just Works(TM). You may recall my dismay at Fedora 11’s poor showing when I first installed it, but with the touchpad working it was too good to resist. So I promptly pulled out my Fedora 11 netinstall CD and went to work. It’s nice to be able to use my printer again and feel more secure with full-disk encryption. The reason I made the trip over to Derek Hildreth’s excellent guide was that I saw an article on Phoronix which, while proving Ubuntu 9.04 and Fedora 11 neck-and-neck in performance, extolled the virtures of Fedora 11’s etx4 filesystem and newer kernel. So I’m back with Fedora 11 on my MacBook, and while Ubuntu was nice, I’ve been using Fedora since Fedora Core 4 and it just feels like home.
