Four F’s in the Fedora Project

Fedora is Linux distribution with two pilars: community and Red Hat support. They have choose an easy way to describe the project by focusing on four concepts all beginning with the letter “F”:

  • Freedom: Fedora distro uses free software and free content, done or maintained by them
  • Friends: At Fedora’s page they said something naive about friendship but also “Like any friends, we occasionally disagree on details, but we believe in finding an acceptable consensus to serve the interests of advancing free software.
  • Features: My personal opinion about what features means in Fedora is about they improve the free software ecosystem not only by offering a distro ready for use but also they build new software and offers it to the community, for instance, yum, dnf, cockpit
  • First: This last F in the four F’s are the main difference among Fedora, CentOS or Red Hat Enterprise Linux which is related with the life cicle of Fedora, they release two versions per year at least.
