Revision as of 16:28, 12 November 2019

This is the contribution and governance space for Fedora Workstation. For general end-user information, including downloads, please visit the main Fedora website.

Fedora Workstation is the Fedora Project's desktop edition. It aims to be a compelling desktop OS which is appropriate for a wide range of users and applications. Software development is a particular target for workstation, and it is particularly appropriate for those doing tech work.

Fedora Workstation is built on a technology base that is shared with the other official Fedora Editions, and is the product of work that happens across the Fedora project, including teams that work on common technologies and processes.

While the Workstation aims to share as much technology as possible with the other Fedora Editions, it is also a distinct technology and user experience, and is developed as a well-defined and integrated desktop experience.
