Over at Datamation, Bruce Byfield previews the upcoming Fedora 10 release
in a discussion with Fedora project leader Paul Frields. The conversation ranges from the now-infamous "infrastructure problems" (with no new information) to the new features coming in Fedora 10. There is even some speculation on Fedora 11. "In Fedora 11 and later releases, Frields suggests, this basic capacity will be expanded in other ways. For instance, users who click on a file format that requires a program that their system lacks might be given a chance to install the program immediately. Similarly, if a document requires an uninstalled font, then users could install the font before opening the file. Users could even be presented with a list of possible options, complete with ratings from other users to help them make an informed choice about the software they install.
