More good news on the Open Source Software Front

Firefox 2 has now been released into the wild for our general consumption. This is the official version, no more release canidates. If your Fedora Core downloads are taking to long, put them on pause and download Firefox 2. Unpack it and browse with confidence while your Fedora Core 6 completes. Good day for all.

Update:  I am not at all impressed.  I have been having a horrible time with this release on Fedora Core 5 and 6 64 bit version running the 32 bit version of Firefox 2.  Not a happy consumer.  Although I have not taken the time to remove all the extensions and themes I have running but still I would have expected more from our friends at Mozilla. Bah hummbug.

My main distribution Fedora has released Core 6

Yes Fedora Core has released Core 6 for general consumption. I have tried their release candidates coming up to this release with mixed results. Hopefully they have managed to get most of the bugs out of it because I am about the take the plunge head first. Get your copies while you can. I will have my torrent running full speed.
I have to say the final product looks really good so far. I will let you know more in the coming days.

Flash Player 9 beta for Linux is here.

It is about time someone got there act together and released this for linux. I am stuck with flash player 7 in only a 32 bit browser no 64 bit support. I still cannot see any support mentioned for a 64 bit Linux operating system but it is a start. So go get it what are you still doing here.

Swifter Fox: Swiftfox 64 Bit

Well folks some people got together and put out a great 64 bit version of Firefox on Linux for those of us that use it. Swiftfox is distribution independent so it does not matter what 64 bit distibution that you use you can still get 64 bit goodness and speed. All your Firefox extensions will work just fine so download Swiftfox and go. On Fedora Core 5 it seems much more stable then the Firefox that comes with the distrubution.  It also works better with nspluginwrapper for allowing 32 bit plugins to work on a 64 bit browser.  So what are you waiting for go give it a try.
