Some of us are just reluctant to change, and Fedora introduces a plethora of new, awesome features every 6 months, which forces us to either learn new features like SystemD, KDE4,
Gnome’s Hell Gnome 3 or go the way of the dinosaur…
Fedora Retro is a brand new repository, built and tested on Fedora 16 – Verne, that contains packages we know you’ve missed, like Gnome 1.0 and Gnome 2.0, KDE 1 through KDE 3.5, Open Office, Gimp and even the Linux Kernel 0.01. There’s even an 8-Bit Graphics Theme, to give it an extra oomph.
Insane, you say? It is, but installing the Fedora Retro Repository allows you to easily try out all the packages you missed, without abandoning the new features you know and love from Fedora.
Why wait? Set up the Fedora Retro Repo, and yum install the good times!
Share and Enjoy!
Update: Sorry to disappoint, but in case it wasn’t perfectly obvious, this was my April Fool’s prank for this year. Here’s Last year’s, in case you missed it.
