Is Fedora Linux Becoming Business-Friendly?

Filed under
Linux

Fedora Linux has not typically been closely associated with the business world. That realm was instead the purview of Red Hat (NYSE: RHT), which sponsors Fedora as a community project and uses it as a proving ground for technologies that often later appear in Red Hat Enterprise Linux. But if the upcoming release of Fedora 18 is any indication, the open source operating system may be poised to become more business friendly in its own right.

Currently, Fedora 18 is not scheduled to be released in stable form until Nov. 27, 2012. But with the alpha version out last week and most planned features already largely implemented, users enjoy a pretty good idea of what the final product will look like.
