Ring. Ring. It's Fedora calling

Red Hat's Fedora Project has announced several cool things this week. 
The first was Intel's defection from Ubuntu to use Fedora in its Moblin 
(Mobile Linux Internet Project). Intel's Dirk Hohndel billed it as 
driven by the project's preference for Fedora's RPM-based packaging 
system, but it's still significant, given Ubuntu's momentum in mobile.

But the most interesting Fedora announcement may well have had nothing 
to do with its code, and everything to do with the process that creates 
that code. I'm referring to Fedora Talk, a voice-over-IP system that 
"allows Fedora contributors to use any standard VoIP hardware or 
software to sign into the Fedora system and make and receive calls to 
other Fedora contributors."
