Getting ready for Fedora 13 to rock it!

I just wanted to highlight this Fedora 13 countdown banner design Alexander Smirnov posted to the Fedora Design Team list recently. As we get closer to launch, the rocket will fire up more and more. The SVG source is available on his Fedora People page, and he has also provided a script to handle outputting translations.

Whoo! Keep rockin’, Alexander!

  1. Aren’t countdowns “T-minus…”?

    Maybe the last (day 0) should have the rocket already gone and instead of zero have “Lift-Off!”

    • Yes, there won’t be “zero days left” but something like “fedora is launched/is here”

  4. very cool.

    however “launched in X days” is weird grammar.

    better options might be:

    “launching in X days”
    “T minus X days”

  5. Wow very nice

    The only thing that is missing is ‘LIFTOFF!!’

  6. Seconding, “launched” is not correct.

    In addition to launching or T minus, launches would work I believe.
