Fedora

Last Update: 2017-06-29 07:20 UTC


Fedora (formerly Fedora Core) is a Linux distribution developed by the community-supported Fedora Project and owned by Red Hat. Fedora contains software distributed under a free and open-source license and aims to be on the leading edge of such technologies. Fedora has a reputation for focusing on innovation, integrating new technologies early on and working closely with upstream Linux communities. The default desktop in Fedora is the GNOME desktop environment and the default interface is the GNOME Shell. Other desktop environments, including KDE, Xfce, LXDE, MATE and Cinnamon, are available. Fedora Project also distributes custom variations of Fedora called Fedora spins. These are built with specific sets of software packages, offering alternative desktop environments or targeting specific interests such as gaming, security, design, scientific computing and robotics.

Popularity (hits per day): 12 months: 6 (992), 6 months: 9 (989), 3 months: 8 (1,014), 4 weeks: 8 (902), 1 week: 10 (777)

Average visitor rating: 9.14/10 from 58 review(s).

Table Notes and Explanations

(Please refer to the table below.)
  • Select view:
  • To compare the software in this project to the software available in other distributions, please see our Compare Packages page.
  • Notes: In case where multiple versions of a package are shipped with a distribution, only the default version appears in the table. For indication about the GNOME version, please check the "nautilus" and "gnome-shell" packages. The Apache web server is listed as "httpd" and the Linux kernel is listed as "linux". The KDE desktop is represented by the "kdelibs" and "plasma-desktop" packages and the Xfce desktop by the "xfdesktop" package.
  • Colour scheme: green text = latest stable version, red text = development or beta version. The function determining beta versions is not 100% reliable due to a wide variety of versioning schemes.

Do you want a binary distro on a bleeding edge? Fedora
Do you want release based versioning with smooth upgrade? Fedora.
Nice setup tool? Fedora.
Yeah, it's not supported everywhere like *buntu, not-so-bleeding-edge as gentoo or arch.
Not-so-stable as oldie debian.
But you know? Balance...
All Fn keys work out-of-the box. Suspend. Bright... Oh. sorry antergos, I'm bit tired of setting up everything you allowing(forcing) me to set up.
wine 2.10 released? Cool! I want a staging version. Oh, I already have it by default. Thank you, fedora. Sorry, deb.
docker ps -a. Oh... not found. What? Yes, install please. From oficial repo? Cool!
For about 12 years I was trying different distros before hit Fedora 22 some years ago. It's like my home now.

I've run Fedora, Ubuntu, OpenSUSE and Debian, looking for a good mix of OS stability and feature sets. Of all them, Fedora 25 seems to offer an environment that is both stable and feature rich.

I noticed the Fedora stability advantage immediately after installing it on a system that I had built for myself in 2016, using the latest and greatest hardware that I could find. There had been several "anomalies" with which I had learned to live in both the OpenSUSE and Debian worlds (both distros had been previously-installed on the same machine, first one then the other) but which simply did not exist in Fedora.

I had run Ubuntu on a second machine for a couple years, trying to satisfy my desire for, at least, a more advanced kernel. Truth be told, I've never cared for Unity and I always wanted a GNOME experience that gave me as many upgrade opportunities as did Ubuntu. Well, my kernel in Fedora 25 is now at 4.11.5 since I installed it and I can say that, somehow, my end-user experience just "feels" better.

I'm not a Linux guru or a programmer or anything like that. I'm just an ordinary guy who's sick of Microsoft Windows. I spend the majority of my computer time just enjoying the experience of being online and of running the programs that I want. But, I had become very concerned about what Microsoft Windows was actually doing on my computer, what data it was collecting, what it was connecting to, etc. I always knew that a Linux OS could ease those concerns., so it was only a matter of time before I ditched Windows, entirely. Of all the distros out there, Fedora 25 has done the best job of giving me the feeling that I'm more secure while simultaneously being stable enough and feature-rich enough to let me have real fun with my computer. Well done!

Been an off and on user of Fedora for many years until Fedora 24. I was pleasantly surprised at the robustness and ease of use. Everything works without flaw, programs, screen transitions, etc. open and transition easily and smoothly in both X and Wayland. Installing GNOME add on's could not be easier straight from Firefox or Chrome. The built in app store has relevant, up to date and useful apps. Other add ons like Fedy, Tweaktool and YUM Installer quickly and easily allow you to expand on the already very good system very quickly and without a hitch. My printer an HP connected and installed perfectly via network. SELinux and the builtin Firewall provide good protection out of the box as well. The look and feel is clean out the box which provides a good base for user customization, ie better than having to clean up a cluttered interface. Fedora has now been my daily driver for over a year. My one recommendation is to use Fedora with a up to date, well powered computer [ram and cpu power]. Low ram and cpu systems might do well with other operating systems.
