9 Exciting Features Fedora 18 Has To Offer

Filed under
Linux

Fedora has been one of the most popular Linux distributions around. The Red Hat-owned project is known for its inclusion of the latest and the best applications this platform has to offer. Moreover, the distro serves as a great example to the FOSS community by always sticking to its principle of being completely open-source inside out.

Thanks to its mission to provide the bleeding edge in open-source software, Fedora has a relatively short release cycle. You'll find a new version of the distribution coming up every 6 months and that too packed with the latest and greatest software. And also, there is brand-new artwork that is one of the finest Linux has to offer. This release offers all that and much more to its users.
