They are plays on the fedora release names. See this for a list:

About the name "Grass" being a word game with "Bordeaux", it´s fun...

Both will get you high... But Bordeaux is well accepted in "everyday society" while Grass is kind of "alternate"...

As of "Heidelberg", I studied there for a month when I was a teenage, and yes, I was riding a "bicycle", but I never wore those "lederhosen" pants...

;)

Overall this is a really great GNU/Linux distribution. 50,000 comes with a load more apps, etc. than the previous 30,000 release.

The new GNOME is super-fast and has more features, including a pretty nice integrated CD recorder (it is not my favorite but it is alright). I still recommend k3b over anything else.

Blag is a more competent distribution than Fedora Core. Only the best package selection, etc. etc.

Very nice. Keep up the great work. Another comprehensive review should appear on the net within 2-3 weeks. I don't want it to seem like I'm getting too cozy with this distribution before I write more posts.

;-)

Excellent Work!

BLAG turned my humble one year old computer into a speed demon.

How can such a small team of developers create the best distribution around?

Best Wishes,


Jon Mason :)
