Re: [Fedora-ambassadors-list] Press release for new Fedora 5

Going http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FC5PressRelease i've read that:

Anaconda, the Fedora Core installer, has been completely rewritten to present a more streamlined interface that matches the new look and feel of Fedora Core 5.

Fedora Core 5 also brings major advancements in software management with the introduction of Pirut, a graphical interface to replace system-config-packages. Pirut helps manage the large number of software packages available in Fedora Core and Extras repositories. The software package updater, Pup, helps users keep pace with Fedora's rapid improvements.

For the first time, all of Fedora Core's tools for software installation and management share the same strong foundation: the package management utility Yum. This tight integration will lead to dramatic improvements in software management in future Fedora releases.

Linux Unified Key Support (LUKS) provides hard disk encryption support in Fedora Core 5; David Zeuthen of Red Hat, the HAL developer and maintainer, worked on the LUKS integration with HAL and GNOME, finishing just in time for the new Fedora Core release. Hard disk encryption provides one of the best physical security solutions -- protection of your data if your hard disk falls into the wrong hands.

A new, and more advance, distribution of Fedora is released today,
it's based on Linux and it's the most advance distribution that is
avaiable in this moment.

Tha feautures are:

Packet with same functionality are inserted in the Extras.

This doesn't make sense.

A new  packet manager with a better integration with Anaconda and Pup

This isn't true

Better start and close speed

Is this true? Has it been tested?

More cripted filesystem.

I don't think this is true.

After three years of works Fedora is became a sure alternative to
commercial OS, that are full of viruses. Fedora is free and
OpenSource and it has alternative software to commercial ones, such
as OpenOffice, Firefox, Gimp etc .... it is developed by volounteer
that everyday work to improove the system and make it up to date.

You can't say "Fedora is better than Windows" in a press release.
