Fedora (formerly Fedora Core) is an open source Linux distribution initially released in 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 others – to provide enhanced abilities and functions.
