Fedora Unity is proud to announce the release of the Fedora 9 Everything 

Go to http://spins.fedoraunity.org/spins to get the bits!

The Everything Spin includes everything available at the time of the 
release of Fedora 9. It is the same, really, it is. Just more. Way, way 
more! And the more Fedora, the better!

The i386 as well as x86_64 Fedora 9 Everything Spin is rather large, yet 
sized a fashionable 4 DVD's. You can imagine carrying those around as 
your complete, instant, bootable and installable mirror of everything 
Fedora has to offer -at the moment Fedora 9 was released. Of course you 
could just use a USB Harddrive, or even USB thumbdrive (16GB), but that 
wouldn't make the Everything Spin any more fun now would it?

Fedora Unity normally includes a CD version "for those of us that do not 
have DVD drives", as we use to say in our Re-Spin release announcements, 
but not this time;

This time Fedora Unity includes a 23 (!) CD version of the Everything 
Spin, *just for kicks* ;-) With Fedora 8, the Everything Spin was just 
19 CDs, so there's 4 discs of extra, new, shiny software! You can see 
how this looks when you're installing from it, here[1].

I'd like to see these discs piled up at every booth showing off the 
enormous amount of available Free and Open Source Software :P

Undoubtfully, some people will give away the CD version of the 
Everything Spin as a birthday present. Also, it reminds people why it is 
they need to upgrade their CD-ROM to DVD players ;-)

Have fun ;-)

Kind regards,

Jeroen van Meeuwen
