back to article Crash test dummy? Love the excitement of breaking an OS? Fedora 25 Alpha has landed

If you're a chronic complainer and nit-picker with a spare machine and a willingness to suffer multiple crashes, weird screen artefacts and possible data loss: Fedora 25's alpha has landed ahead of its anticipated November 2016 release. If you want to help the developers by breaking stuff, don't risk dual-boot on OS X if you' …

      Federa?

      Pillowcase?

      Awesome!

        Good try! :-)

        no, actually a Chilean meme, from "El Show de Juanelo" a comics blog, where the first to comment adds an icon with a messed up version of "first", in Spanish, "primero", thus "pimedo".

        And for the record, the "Federa" was a typo elReg had in the original title (I see they fixed that now)

      You are missing out!

      Fedora 24 is brilliant and there are a number of remixes including "Mate" for people who do not like the default desktop choice.

    I've had a hate on problem with GNOME since I first met linux, and live with KDE (it was hell for a while) or *box or LXDE when the resources aren't there.

    Spinning this up in a vm later this week to play.

    I probably shouldn't say this, but...

    ...most of the bugs you linked actually exist in stable release too. Yes, including the OS X partition resize one. Just, er...don't do that.

    Most weirdness people encounter in 25 Alpha Workstation will likely be related to Wayland, which is the default for Workstation now; we know about quite a lot of the issues, but we'd certainly welcome reports of any problems people run across. Other variants (KDE, Xfce, Cinnamon etc.) still use X by default.

    and thanks for the article, it's nice to get press on pre-releases so we get more feedback!
