Fedora Overview And Screenshots

Overview:


 

Fedora is a community distro from Red Hat. It is a cutting edge distribution that offers a large number of packages available to install. It uses YUM and RPM to install packages. A new release comes out every 6 months. If you are looking for something a little more stable with long term support take a look at Centos.

 

I used Fedora before I found Arch Linux. One reason I really like Fedora is because all the work they do upstream. What this means is instead of creating some patch for just Fedora they work with the application developers to get the fix in place. Such as a patch or fix for Gnome. This does not benefit Fedora but all Linux distros.
