Next week, together with an Ubuntu guy, I am going to a national television (TVR), we will be filming some general stuff about Linux which is going to de diffused on one of its channels. From the preliminary conversation, I understand they will record in HD, directly from the computer screen, so my only laptop, a netbook, is not up to the task (the requirement is an LCD with at least 1200x960), so my best chance is to use Live media. OK, Live media is one of Fedora's strong points, apparently no problem with that.
Today I got a bit carried away and got an idea: the F12 Alpha was just released, with tons of greatness, let see how it works on my Eee, maybe I can use it for demos, a little risky (I would carry also a F11 with me), but let see what is about. Well, the result is embarrassing, take the Graphics menu as an example:
This is pathetic: menu entry with one single (and weak) application (Office and Internet menus are not far from that either). Almost as little content as a default Windows install. I said it before and will say it again: our "Desktop" spin sucks for demoing the Fedora features.
Conclusion: I can't show that, it would be a disgrace. I think I have to take advantage of live persistence and put some real stuff on it. Still to decide if I'm trying to go with the Alpha (the use will be limited, not many things to break) or showing directly the latest stable (that one needs a bit of customization too, but it has at least GIMP and Pidgin).
