Ok, but will these spins be CD ISO images or DVD ISO images? If I download the 
desktop or KDE spins, will I have to download server packages separately, 
among with the applications for the other GUI? Will Fedora become like 
[KU]buntu, where you have a CD ISO to do the installation and everything else 
should be downloaded from on-line repos? If this is the case, I think it's a 
step back, specially for those with low speed connections, who could just 
copy a DVD ISO from someone else with a high speed connection.

I've seen in the Fedora Schedule that the first test version of Fedora 7 is 
available today. Where do I download it from?
