Fedora Project's Robyn Bergeron: The Linux Desktop Is Almost Ready for Its Close-Up

Filed under
Linux
Interviews

The Fedora Project is perhaps one of the hallmark Linux distributions. Fedora is sponsored by Red Hat, the commercial developer of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL). Red Hat's investment in the Fedora community is collaborative. As such, Fedora Linux releases often provide RHEL developers with a field test environment that incubates innovative open source software technologies.

The Fedora community continues to develop its own Fedora distro as a non-commercial (free) version for consumers who elect not to pay for enterprise support. This foundation asserts that use and distribution of Fedora should be free and supported by a worldwide community of friendly users.

It has become necessary to spell out what it means for your computer to be a loyal platform that obeys your decisions, which you express by telling it to run certain programs. Read more
