 Review: Fedora Core 2

"Last January Red Hat became a victim of its own success when Fedora Core 1 (FC1) became so popular that the update repositories hosted by Red Hat could no longer keep up with the demand for downloads. This was a tragedy because there were plenty of mirrors to distribute the load and the configuration fix was an easy one to make. Unfortunately, not enough people found out about it, and Red Hat ended up with some serious egg on its face. FC2 solves this problem in a truly elegant fashion: up2date is now configured to get updates from any one of several authorized mirrors, which it seems to pick from the list at random."
