Fedora legacy support dies

Antony Savvas

Fedora Legacy, the project to deliver long-term support to older versions of the hobbyist Linux OS, is shutting down.

The free Fedora OS is distributed by Red Hat, and is seen as a testing ground for software that can be used in the fully-supported Red Hat Linux distribution.

But a lack of developer community involvement and operating cash, say the organisers, is to blame for the demise of Fedora Legacy.

Red Hat released Fedora Core 6 last autumn. With the demise of Fedora Legacy, older versions will now no longer be supported.
