Fedora Project leaders have announced the availability of Fedora 18 Alpha , the first release of a highly anticipated and distribution comes with several new features in several areas.
One of the most interesting is the new look of Anaconda , the installation wizard appearance has changed dramatically to try to simplify and clarify the process of installation.

As indicated in The H Open, the new versions of these desktop environments arrive with other new features. For example, the possibility of establishing an access point with NetworkManager, an updated edition OpenStack in ‘Folsom’ support for such controversial UEFI Secure Boot feature that Microsoft wants to implement with manufacturers before the arrival Windows 8.
Due to the premature
development cycle there are several features that will be included in future versions of Fedora previous 18. In fact, you have to be careful because there are options not covered, and eg automatic partitioning reformats the selected disk partitions without notice , so be very careful with this option enabled.
