Today we are going to talk about Fedora Flavors. Fedora Flavors are derivatives that are based on Fedora’s source code. Usually, these Fedora Flavors are made by Fedora fans around the world. Now let's see what Fedora is. In simple terms, Fedora is a Linux based operating system. But there is more. Fedora was first released by Project Fedora under the trademark of Red Hat. Then, after a few years, the Fedora Project turned in to the the Fedora Linux Distribution or what is commonly known as Fedora Distro. Then it became a free and open-source operating system, aiming to be on top of the free technologies – making it extremely suitable for software developers and community members to design tailored solutions for its users.
When compared to other operating systems, Fedora is extremly easy to install and use. To install Fedora on your computer, you can use Rufus. It allows you to make bootable USB flash drives easily. In November 2006, Fedora 30 was released for public use. At the time of writing this, there are five versions of Fedora that are available in the market, which are as follows:
- Fedora Workstation, an easy to use operating system for laptops and desktop computers, equipped with a full set tool for software developers.
- Fedora Server which highlights the flexibility and power in its operations as it includes the nest and latest data center technologies, giving developers a grip on all infrastructure and services.
- Fedora CoreOS previews Fedora Linux; future because of its automatic updates, minimal, and container-focused operating system.
- Silverblue goes along the list of emerging Fedora versions which features an immutable desktop operating system with the goal of providing for container-focused workflows.
- Fedora IoT which strengthens the foundations of IoT ecosystems through its high level security features.
These are not the only Fedora Flavors available today. If you are looking for other Fedora Flavors, three other variations are available for their specific usages – the Fedora Spins that allows you to use your preferred desktop environment; the Fedora Labs which provides a wide range of selections of curated bundles of purpose-driven software and content monitored by the members of the Fedora Project Community; and the Fedora Alt Downloads or Alternative Downloads that serve special purposes such as for testing, architectures, or for more standard formats of the Fedora Linux for purposes of network installations or Bit Torrent downloads. With its reputation towards innovation, the line of Fedora Linux distributions continues to integrate new technologies into its software. Given that fact, the support that each version receives usually lasts at least 13 months. Just last April 2020, the Fedora Project released their latest version of Fedora – Fedora 32.
