Submission Fedora 9 released

Psychor writes: "The latest version of Fedora Linux (9.0) was released today, and the torrent is available for download. It's one of the first major distributions to include KDE 4 (for the KDE spin) and also ships with Firefox 3 (beta 5).

The release also features some other major improvements such as ext4 support, partition resizing in the Anaconda installer, PackageKit (replacing Pirut) and "One Second X"."

Submission Dell releases World of Warcraft laptop

Psychor writes: "Dell has released a high specification new laptop complete with World of Warcraft branding (Horde and Alliance versions available). With a starting price of $4,499 it's not cheap, but does feature SLI graphics and AGEIA PhysX technology (a laptop first). RAID and solid state storage are also options.

Interestingly it also comes with a voucher for a FigurePrint, a unique statue of your in-game character complete with their current gear using 3D prototyping technology. How do Slashdotters feel about these new products? Do they represent a marketing department gone mad, or would you like to see this kind of merchandise available based on other games/media."
