So Core 2 is available and all the download mirrors seem to be swamped with people getting their ISOs. "Too many connected users, try again later" is most common message.

I am really eager to check it out. Hardware support will be improved so all the pieces are utilized more efficiently and cause less trouble for new users. New KDE seems to be getting a lot of praises from the reviewers. All in all, it seems to be a release that will attract a lot of new users. See, there are a lot of people out there not interested in the systems innards, they just want to sit down at their PCs and start surfing, e-mailing, chatting, burning CDs and DVDs with least amount of hassle. Hopefully, Fedora Core 2 (and Linux in general) is going towards that goal, of being simple to configure and use for an ordinary people and at the same offering robust and secure platform for software developers, network and web admins.

Just my 2 cents.

I'm in the process of downloading the ISO's right now. Getting a pretty good speed from the mirror. ISO 4 and 5 are completed and 1,2,3 are 80% done.

Here are the MD5sums:

FC2-i386-disc1.iso (md5sum: c366d585853768283dac6cdcefcd3a2d)
FC2-i386-disc2.iso (md5sum: fc3c926442cc85a469268651bd04c186)
FC2-i386-disc3.iso (md5sum: 5ad870e696953f4bbd0a91936873890e)
FC2-i386-disc4.iso (md5sum: c736f8048b12315b5c0b070de1d74867)

A list of mirrors can be found at http://fedora.redhat.com/download/mirrors.html

Torrent info - http://torrent.dulug.duke.edu/

The release notes haven't been updated yet but they should be located at http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/release-notes/ when they are.

I was getting really good speeds from ftp://ftp.heanet.ie/pub/fedora/linux/core/

It took about 4-5 hours to download the 4 ISOs and the rescue CD ISO.

I'll be installing it on the server sometime tomorrow. However there will not be any screen shots since I will not be installing X. I'll let you know how the install goes though.

I really didn't have many problems with my install of FC2Test3.

I downloaded the binary ISOs via bittorrent last night and averaged 535mb/sec download speeds ... it tooks slightly less than 2 hours to download all the isos ... but I haven't burned them yet.

Maybe tonight....
