Fedora 18 Spin Set

Fedora’s spins are special versions of Fedora designed to highlight special features and tools. The spin system lets the Fedora community put out several different versions of Fedora tailored to specific tasks. This month’s DVD includes a pair of the most popular Fedora spins:

  • KDE Spin – View your Fedora system from KDE’s powerful and popular Plasma desktop. The system is configured and optimized for KDE, with the AmaroK media player, Kontact personal information manager, and KOffice productivity suite.
  • Security Spin – According to the project web page, Fedora’s Security Lab spin provides “… a safe test environment to work on security auditing, forensics, system rescue, and teaching security testing methodologies … .” Onboard are useful tools for forensics, intrusion detection, code analysis, reconnaissance, and penetration testing.
