About Linux Fedora

Linux Fedora is a stable general-purpose operating system that is supported and endorsed by Red Hat, a company owned by IBM. Fedora is also free and open-source, making it fairly popular.

Linux Fedora is, according to the reliable Distrowatch, the eighth place in GNU/Linux distribution popularity. It is reasonably powerful, but its true strength shines in its ease of use, with it being well known for balancing out this very important element for some users, starting with the simple installation process all the way to the day-to-day functions. Being endorsed by Red Hat, Linux Fedora has the enormous advantage to have access to this community of developers and supporters that can help users with the more advanced issues and make a beginner-friendly system as usable and powerful as the others that exist.

This operating system has remarkable quirks and advantages that we will discuss here. First, Linux Fedora has the privilege to work closely with the Gnome Foundation, so the latest Gnome Shell is up and ready for users of this operating system earlier than users of other distributions of GNU/Linux. Fedora is also immensely powerful in the security department, this is because of its integration of the SELinux module, exclusively focused on making the experience secure for the user at all times. Fedora has other types of software in its environment, including “labs”, with software specifically designed for a certain activity (mostly for learning about video games, robotics, or similar topics)


Fedora also has the virtue of having short life cycles, with bug fixes and new implementations more often than other distros. We are currently on the 34th release, which was made available to the public on the 27th of May of 2021, with the previous version (33rd release) made public in October of 2020, this version is outdated but still maintained. Furthermore, Fedora has an upcoming release date for their 35th iteration, scheduled for the 19th of October of 2021.
