Fedora Workstation is a well-known operating system (OS), created on the basis of the corporate distribution of Red Hat Linux, and concurrently one of the branches of the Fedora project. This edition is mainly focused on personal computers and notebooks, not on server machines. The OS supports a variety of architectures, including x86 and ARM, and offers a wide range of free software.
The software packages are downloaded and updated with the help of the RPM manager or the Application Center. Pre-installed programs include LibreOffice Office suite, Firefox browser, Evolution mail client, Rhythmbox audio player, Nautilus file manager, gedit text editor, Terminal and other applications. Additional utilities are downloaded from a single global repository that contains only free applications. If you don't have enough packages from the shared repository, you can always connect third parties. In particular, many codecs and video card drivers can be found in RPMFusion, Bumblebee or Negativo17.
Fedora Workstation is a fairly simple and reliable distribution that can be dealt with in a few hours. This operating system is suitable for experienced administrators and software developers as well as for those who are just beginning to learn the basics of Linux.
