Fedora 15 release event – Chennai

I gave a presentation about Fedora 15 and its features at the monthly meet of Indian Linux Users GroupChennai. I started my presentation by answering the question “Why Fedora and Fedora project?”. Explained them about core foundations of Fedora project and other things at http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Overview.

Then i moved on to the new features in Lovelock. I picked up features Systemd and Gnome 3 and explained them elaborately.  I showed them the brand new gnome 3 desktop and informed them about what to expect and what not to expect from it. People were puzzled about the removal of poweroff/reboot/minimize button from the system menu and title bar. I showed them how they can bring back the poweroff/reboot/minimize buttons by installing gnome-shell extensions.

Finally i asked the audience to watch out for Fudcon:APAC, India as the Fedora Indian community is looking forward to conduct the conference later this year. Fedora 15 ISO’s, snacks and beverages were served in the end 🙂

    Happy talking!

    I have always wondered why people don’t publish the sources of their LaTeX presentations. Thanks for doing that. 🙂
