Well Fedora 8 is the newest Fedora and it could be called "testing".
It has been one of the best versions in terms of few real "bugs". There
will be Fedora 9 in about 4 months from now. So you see Fedora is in

For the past one year (almost) I am into Linux world. I used Ubuntu
and then Debian on my desktop before. Recently I've installed Fedora 8
into my laptop after hearing lots of good things about it. And I found

'/lenny/') and quite happy to use that. Since it's a home PC, I don't

Does Fedora has three branches like debian - /stable, testing,
unstable/ ? I guess "rawhide" is like "testing" in debian. Am I correct?

You can go to rawhide and run some of the new applications if

So if you do not mind a changing system welcome home!
