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。
我們堅信這些價值觀來作為創建我們的作業系統的所有元件的基本原則，也因為如此，我們 保證 Fedora 將永遠免費提供給全球各處所有的人能夠使用，修改和發佈。
Fedora 是一個自由和開放原始碼軟體的創新中心，並且創建一個社群包含各種貢獻者 -- 開發人員，文件管理員，藝術家，系統管理員和其他自由軟體和開放原始碼源愛好者 -- 來共同推動為大眾的利益著想的生態系統。Fedora 社群貢獻一切能建構回到自由和開放原始碼的世界，並且繼續讓更廣泛社群進一步的彰顯此意義，而為了證明如此，則透過定期和迅速將它的功能衍生到其它 Linux 的發行版。無論您使用的是哪一個 Linux 的發行版本，您都是憑藉於 Fedora 計畫內發展的程式碼。
為什麼 Fedora 計畫是與眾不同的？
我們嘗試總是做正確的事情，並只提供自由和開放原始碼軟件。我們將積極努力保護和 推廣 任何人都可以使用和重新發佈的解決方案。 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.

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.
