Fedora

Last Update: 2017-09-19 07:21 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: 8 (997), 6 months: 7 (971), 3 months: 7 (905), 4 weeks: 9 (815), 1 week: 10 (844)

Average visitor rating: 8.91/10 from 111 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.

For those trying to play Steam games, specifically Counter Strike: Global Offensive, be happy to know that it runs without issues on Wayland/Fedora. After a few months of updates, they play nice together now. Mouse cursor is fast and you don't get killed because of input delay.

Fedora brings the default upstream themes for its DEs, which is good if you develop GTK+3 applications and desire standardization. It seems to be more wisely modified. It feels cleaner, not bloated. It feels professional, not like a toy. It encourages the use of free software, unlike Ubuntu. Updated software too, proprietary hardware drivers included (makes sense to include them). Also, the GNOME experience is very good.

Only complaint I have to make is about performance. I mean, rendering a video is still fast. But no matter if I use MATE or GNOME, if you open a game or, say, Stellarium, it will have less FPS compared to other distros. GNOME animations are slow everywhere, but in Fedora you kind of feel it's slower.

GNOME devs said GNOME 3.26 will address performance issues once and for all (probably by separating the main process in multiple threads).

Coming from Debian GNU/Linux I was very interested getting into RHL/Fedora. Using the Live-image for testing I was thrilled. The real awakening came when the OS was on my old Extensa 5235: The machine was so slow, that it wasn't usable at all. Even worse then Ubuntu. I'll never try RHL again. God bless GNU/Linux and St. Ricardo:-)

I've started using Fedora about 3 years ago. It's far better than Ubuntu. 'cause I've tried Ubuntu too.
Fedora Advantages:
Easier package management
(dnf is more efficient than apt, and group installation in Fedora helps me a lot. it's also faster than apt)
It uses the last available packages and helps me being kept up-to-date
more secure (SELinux)
less updates is needed. In Ubuntu the amount of updates u get is too much. But Fedora ain't that way
Fedora Spins are amazing. (Fedora Workstation, Server, Cloud)
