Fedora is an RPM-based, general purpose collection of software, including an operating system based on the Linux kernel, developed by the community-supported Fedora Project and sponsored by Red Hat. Fedora’s flexibility makes it capable of serving as a digital repository for a variety of use cases. The Fedora Project's mission is to lead the advancement of free and open source software and content as a collaborative community.

One of Fedora's main objectives is not only to contain software distributed under a free and open source license, but also to be on the leading edge of such technologies. Fedora developers prefer to make upstream changes instead of applying fixes specifically for Fedora. This ensures that their updates are available to all Linux distributions.

Available Versions:

  • Fedora 20
  • Fedora 21
  • Fedora 22


Install using Ignition

Fedora can be installed using the Ignition installer. Flash Ignition to an SD card, then use Ignition to download and install Fedora automatically.
