什麼是 Fedora 計畫?

Fedora 計畫 是一個來自全球各地自由軟體社群成員的合作夥伴關係。 Fedora 計畫建置了開放原始碼軟體社群,並且建構了一個被稱為 "Fedora。" 的 Linux 發行版本。


Fedora 計畫的任務是成為一個相互合作的社群來領導自由和開放源碼軟體及內容能夠進步。

Fedora 的任務組成要素


  • Fedora 計劃總是努力去領導而非跟隨。
  • Fedora 計畫始終如一追求創造,改進和免費傳播 / 自由原始碼和內容。
  • Fedora 計畫的成功是透過在我們社群的很多人共享行為組合而成。


Fedora 計畫的核心價值觀,或是說根基,是記載於 它們自己的維基百科頁面

We strongly believe in the bedrock principles that created all the components of our operating system, and because of this we guarantee that Fedora will always be free for everyone, everywhere, to use, modify and distribute.


Fedora is more than just software, though. It is a community of contributors from around the world, including volunteers and Red Hat employees, who work with each other to advance the interests of the free culture movement. Everyone is invited to join and, no matter what your skills are, we have a place for you in our community! The Fedora community includes software engineers, artists, system administrators, web designers, writers, speakers, and translators -- all of whom will be happy to help you get started.

We believe that all contributors should "be excellent to each other." By creating an environment for constructive contribution, we can more effectively and successfully compare and challenge different ideas to find the best solutions for advancement, while building the size, diversity, and strength of our community.


Fedora is a center for innovation in free and open source software, and creates a community where contributors of all kinds -- developers, documenters, artists, system administrators, and other free software and open source enthusiasts -- come together to advance the ecosystem for the benefit of everyone. The Fedora community contributes everything it builds back to the free and open source world and continues to make advances of significance to the broader community, as evidenced by the regular and rapid incorporation of its features into other Linux distributions. Regardless of which Linux distribution you use, you are relying on code developed within the Fedora Project.

為什麼 Fedora 計畫是與眾不同的?

We try to always do the right thing, and provide only free and open source software. We will fight to protect and promote solutions that anyone can use and redistribute. To this end, we use only free and open source software to power the Fedora infrastructure itself. With this in mind, all of our developers are focused on working closely with upstream development teams, so everyone can benefit from our work and get access to our changes as soon as possible. Due to the huge amount of innovation that Fedora drives, this focus has had significant and long lasting effects. Some of the recent developments in free and open source software that Fedora has driven include:

The reverse is also true: by sticking close to upstream development teams, Fedora often gets the latest software before anyone else. Not only does this benefit our community, but it also benefits the upstream teams by providing a much larger audience and more feedback for them.

Another striking difference of Fedora is our goal to empower others to pursue their vision of what a free operating system should be. Fedora now forms the basis for derivative distributions such as Red Hat Enterprise Linux, the One Laptop Per Child XO, and Creative Commons' Live Content DVDs.

And that's not all. It is just as easy for individuals to create their own distribution, thanks to Fedora's easy remixing tools. These tools allow you to quickly select the packages you want, and create live images for CD/DVD or USB, or installation discs. Some official versions, or what we call "spins," of Fedora have grown up this way, including:

  • Fedora Electronic Lab (installable Live DVD)
  • Fedora Xfce Spin (installable Live CD)
  • Fedora Games Spin (installable Live DVD)

We believe software patents are harmful, a hindrance to innovation in software development, and are inconsistent with the values of free and open source software. While tightly integrating proprietary and patent encumbered components might superficially improve ease of use, this practice does not benefit the community in the long run. The Fedora community prefers approaches that benefit the progress of free software in the future over those that emphasize short term ease of use.

加入 Fedora 計畫

Like what you see and want to help out? That's easy too! This page has all the information you need, and don't forget that all our contributors get access to some awesome tools to help them get their work done:

  • Fedora People provides free webspace for hosting Fedora related content
  • Fedora Planet is an aggregation of contributor blogs so you can see what everyone is up to
  • Fedora Hosted is the perfect location for hosting your free and open source projects
  • Fedora's own Gobby server, so we can collaboratively work on documents in real time
  • Fedora Build System to build your software across multiple architectures
  • The skills and experience of hundreds of fellow Fedora contributors!
  • Fedora Talk is a free hosted voice over ip (VOIP) telephone system

什麼是 Fedora 發行版?

Fedora is a Linux-based operating system that provides users with access to the latest free and open source software, in a stable, secure and easy to manage form. Fedora is the largest of many free software creations of the Fedora Project. Because of its predominance, the word "Fedora" is often used interchangeably to mean both the Fedora Project and the Fedora operating system.


Among our other goals, we strive to create a distribution that is not only open to contribution but also serves the needs of a wide audience of users. By meeting the common needs of a wide audience, Fedora encourages the spread of free software, understanding of its methodologies, and participation in its processes.

我如何取得 Fedora 發行版?

Easy, just visit this page and download it. You can try it without installing anything on your computer, thanks to our Live images on CD or USB - in fact, you can even create a Live USB stick from within Windows!

If you have a slow internet connection, or no internet connection at all, then you can still get Fedora thanks to our volunteer Free Media program.
