Fedora (formerly Fedora Core) is an open source Linux distribution initially released on 2003. It's a fast, stable, and flexible operating system developed and supported by the Fedora Project, an open source community formed as a partnership between Red Hat (trusted provider of open source technology) and volunteer contributors.
Fedora is based on RPM (Redhat Package Manager) Linux having two types (Deb/Rpm). The operating system is integrated with a wide range of packaged software and applications such as Firefox, LibreOffice and many other - to provide enhanced abilities and functions.
Fedora utilizes GNOME for its desktop interface and includes, among its other new features and additions, UEFI Secure Boot support, KDE 4.9, Xfce 4.10, improved Active Directory support, and the OpenStack Folsom open source cloud platform.
Fedora is available in three editions:
- Workstation Edition is a polished, easy to use operating system for laptop and desktop computers, with a complete set of tools for developers and makers of all kinds.
- Server Edition is a powerful, flexible operating system that includes the best and latest datacenter technologies. It puts you in control of all your infrastructure and services.
- Cloud/Atomic Edition provides a minimal image of Fedora for use in public and private cloud environments. It includes just the bare essentials making it very light on resources, but you get enough to run your cloud application
