HUGE success of the Fedora 12 LXDE Spin

The Fedora 12 LXDE spin turns out to be a huge success. It only took us 8 days to become number #2 in the most popular Fedora Spins, although the other spins were released two weeks before LXDE. As I’m writing this post, we had more than 2500 complete BitTorrent downloads.

Thanks to all the people who downloaded the spin and made this possible. I really appreciate the your interest in LXDE and my work. Thanks for all the nice feedback I received so far.

If you don’t have the spin yet, grab the ISO image at http://spins.fedoraproject.org/lxde/#downloads

If you want to install it on a device with no CD drive, you can make a bootable USB key of the image. Attention: Please don’t use UNetbootin, it’s known to be broken. Use liveusb-creator or the livecd-iso-to-disk script from the livecd-tools package instead.

Fedora 12 LXDE Spin – Take two!

Finally the hard working people over at the Fedora project have released a working Fedora 12 Spin featuring LXDE! Christoph has the complete story behind the delay, never mind that though and go grab your copy at http://spins.fedoraproject.org/lxde/ (in the last couple of hours 60 other downloads have already occured).
