Special Information

Fedora is a 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.

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.

Compared to more mainstream non-Linux operating systems, Fedora has a short life cycle.

According to DistroWatch, Fedora is the third most popular Linux-based operating system as of November 2011, behind Mint and Ubuntu, and it is the most popular RPM-based Linux distribution.
