The Movers and Shakers Lumber Liquidators and Red Hat Inc

Lumber Liquidators Holdings Inc., up $1.34 at $25.72
 - The hardwood flooring retailer's stock looks like it might have possible market share growth.

Red Hat Inc., up $1.55 at $45.27
 - Reporting better than expected first quarter results.

 Looks like the open source community is going to be a large part of the economic turn around. and with Red Hat leading the way we can not lose.
 This is a perfect example of Fedora's 'First' foundation which represents our commitment to innovation. May we continue to be innovative and lead the way.


Customizing Fedora 15 In Fallback Mode

Since our Fedora Remix, CrossBytes School Edition is now   based on Fedora 15 we have been working on the menu system in fallback mode first; then we shall tackle learning how to write our own gnome shell extension for Gnome shell.
This is a screen shot of what we have so far .
 We have added icons back on the desktop, redistributed menu items from 'other' and deleted the 'other' from the menu selections. Then we customized for our menu breakdown of educational apps. Then we had to prioritize the menu listing so to not have repeats. Well this is what we have so far.
 We will be working on an extension for the Gnome Shell but until the memory leak is fixed we shall be shipping our systems with Fedora 15 set up in Fallback mode for now.
 We have noticed a considerable speed increase on the desktop with Fedora 15 in fallback mode comparison to using the old Gnome from Fedora 14. Thank you for all of the great work to all involved. Can not wait to see how Gnome Shell works out, once the memory leak is fixed.

Sorry about no link for memory bug. it is on the Common F15 bugs page at

Missouri State Highway Patrol Goes Green Using Red Hat Enterprise

The Missouri State Highway Patrol became part of the Tuxology
Revolution in 2004. They joined When the state patrols support
from Microsoft had concluded at the end of that year and they
started running Red Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1 on Dell rackmount
servers. These computers were production machines, running as
a file, print and Web server while also supporting there
staff and users on the Web. I hope that they eventually
achived there goal of having Linux with a deeper presence
in there data center.
