(To the tune of Michael Jackson's "Thriller")

It's close to midnight and something cool is coming through the "tubes"
It's looking real tight, a distro for the experts and the n00bs
With Live CDs* so you can try it out before installing
Or DVDs so you can have the packages you choose
No way to lose

'Cause it's Fedora, Fedora 8
We'd love to have you join us and together we'll be great
Using Fedora, Fedora 8
Just click the link and rescue your computer's future today

Hotplugging speakers, you realize PulseAudio is sweet
You feel the power of kernel 2.6.23
You close your eyes but then you can't see all the gorgeous artwork
You want online? New NetworkManager helps you explore
And try out BigBoard

'Cause it's Fedora, Fedora 8
This is the leading edge of free and open source today
You've got Fedora, Fedora 8
A brand-new shiny desktop with the latest, greatest awaits

Now firewalls, you will find, are a ball to configurate
Virtual hosts you can manage the most secure way
(It makes your day)
Now you can authenticate

They're out to get you, security enhancements stop them cold
You want your codecs? Codeina is the legal way to go
We've got the spins -- developers, electronics, and gaming
And that's not all, we wanted to make sure your Java's free
So we've got IcedTea

Inside Fedora, Fedora 8
We promise Number 9 is no more than six months away, world
Fedora, Fedora 8
So get aboard the torrent, share Fedora, score a new Fedora, by next May
'Cause it's Fedora, Fedora 8
You get to keep both pieces anytime that something breaks, girl
Fedora, Fedora 8
If only Vincent Price could read this killer filler:

"Werewolf" moves across the land
Router meltdowns close at hand
Sysadmins in search of blood
For those who caused this bandwidth flood
And whosoever took the risk
But failed to make an extra disc
Must face the Bastard Op from Hell
And lose his access to the shell

The best of Linux now is here
To kill the FUD and strike with fear
The hearts of those who steal your rights
And hide their code far from your sight
Closed source takes away what's yours
But you'll never shake the horror
Until you taste the freedom and
The power of FEDORA!

or USB storage for use. Refer to

  3. The solution is to gradually become free of societal rewards and learn how to substitute for them rewards that are under one’s own powers. This is not to say that we should abandon every goal endorsed by society; rather, it means that, in addition to or instead of the goals others use to bribe us with, we develop a set of our own.
