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

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 雖然是一個軟體,但絕不僅僅是軟體而已。它代表一個 貢獻者們的社群 其來自 世界各地,包括志工和紅帽公司的員工,他們以互相促進自由文明運作而工作。每個人都是應邀參加,且不論您的技能是什麼,在我們的社群裡我們為您留了一個位置! Fedora 社群包括 軟體工程師 藝術家 系統管理員 網頁設計師 作家 解說員, 和 翻譯員 -- 所有的人會很樂意幫助您開始。

我們相信所有貢獻者應該 "彼此都是優秀的"。透過創造一個​有建設性貢獻的環境​,我們可以更有效率和成功的比較和挑戰不同的想法尋找到最佳的解決方案的進步,同時建構大規模,多樣性和我們社群的實力。


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,您都可憑藉於 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。 為此,我們只使用來自於 Fedora 自身基礎設施的自由和開放原始碼軟體的力量。有鑑於此,我們所有的開發成員都專注的與 上游 開發團隊一起緊密工作,所以每個人都能從我們的工作受益並盡可能快的獲得存取我們所做的改變。由於 Fedora 驅策了大量的 創新 ,這個重點已經有顯著和持久的影響。Fedora 的驅策包括一些最近的自由和開放原始碼軟體的發展:

反過來看也是如此:靠著堅持接近上游的開發團隊,Fedora 經常在其他人之前獲取最新的軟體。這不僅造福我們的社群,而且更大的聽眾群為開發團隊提供了更多的反饋也有利於上游團隊。

另一個 Fedora 顯著的差異是我們的目標是幫助他人追求他們的願景有關於什麼是免費的操作系統應該具備的。也就是 Fedora 現在已經發展成為 上百種基於 Fedora 衍生出來之發行版 的基礎比如像是 Red Hat Enterprise Linux 紅帽 Linux 企業版本, 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.
