This is the announcement of Zod. Zod permits you to call him "Fedora Core

Tremble, Earthlings, for Zod is released from the confines of testing. Zod
intends to hammer the servers of the world ... starting TODAY! For those
who chose the world-domination-acceptance package in your last
installation, you need do nothing -- Zod is beaming itself to your
computers already. If your keyboard begins to get hot, back away ... very
... slowly ...

For the rest of you minions who failed to do Zod's bidding previously,
this is your ONE AND ONLY CHANCE to redeem yourself. Go quickly! Download
the torrent NOW. Obtain the ISO immediately. Zod's minions know to back up
their /home directory and to begin immediate installation of the GREATEST
version of Fedora Core EVER.

When you are done genuflecting, listen carefully. Zod now delivers an
important message to Zod's predecessor, the Fifth Iteration of Fedora
Core, known to some as Bordeaux:

"KNEEL BEFORE ZOD, for Zod has many improvements that convince users to
upgrade and abandon you! Ph34r me! Mwahahahaha."

Zod accepts that the Fedora Project continues to provide software and
security updates for Bordeaux, as per the policy of Zod's minions. Zod
chooses to permit this action to continue.

Those who would understand Zod must begin here:


Massive downloading of Zod is known to melt servers worldwide, so Zod
commands all who are able to use bittorrent.
