About Fedora Workstation

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.
