Fedora 15 Spins Custom Linux Distros

Filed under
Linux

From some use cases, a one size fits all operating system doesn't fit the bill. That's where customized operating systems can come into play, with Linux being a key enabler.

As part of the upcoming Fedora 15 Linux release, there will be multiple 'spins' or customized variants of the general-purpose Linux operating system release, to meet specific needs and use-cases.

The custom spins will be available as Live Images that enable users to run the distro from a CD/DVD or USB key without the need to install to a hard drive. Fedora is a community Linux distribution sponsored by Red Hat (NYSE:RHT). The customized Fedora 15 spins include security, gaming and desktop variants for KDE, LXDE and Xfce and is set for availability as the same time as Fedora 15 is generally available.

Our Favourite Apps for Ubuntu

There are other apps that we would love to have on Ubuntu like Affinity Photo, a stunning image editor that’s on par with Adobe’s Photoshop that’s available on Windows and Mac as well as Bear, a beautifully designed note taking app that we do most of our writing on that’s only available for macOS. However, the Ubuntu platform has moved forward in leaps and bounds in recent years when it comes to the official availability of popular apps and we are confident that this trend will continue.
