Fedora 34 is a fast, stable, and powerful Linux-based operating system for everyday use. It’s completely free to use, study, and share. It is built and used by people across the globe who work together as a community: the Fedora Project.
This OS provides software to suit a wide variety of applications. The storage, memory and processing requirements vary depending on usage.
Hence, it is a collection of software that makes your computer run. Fedora uses the RPM package management system. The default desktop is the GNOME desktop environment. The default interface is the GNOME Shell. Other desktop environments, including KDE Plasma, Xfce, LXDE, MATE and Cinnamon, are available and you can install them.
This Operating System comes installed with a wide range of software such as LibreOffice and Firefox. Additional software is available from the software repositories. You can install them using the DNF package manager or GNOME Software.
Fedora supports the primary architectures such as Intel i686, AMD x86-64 and ARM-hfp. Pidora is a specialized Fedora distribution for the Raspberry Pi. It also supports ARM AArch64, IBM Power64, IBM Power64le, IBM Z, MIPS-64el and MIPS-el as secondary architectures.
Fedora has a reputation for focusing on innovation, integrating new technologies early on and working closely with upstream Linux communities.
Fedora is sponsored by Red Hat, the world’s most trusted provider of open source technology. As always, it continues to develop (Red Hat contributions) and integrate the latest free and open source software.
Workstation Edition is a polished, easy to use operating system for laptop and desktop computers, with a complete set of tools and helpers for developers and makers of all kinds.
Server Edition is a powerful, flexible operating system that includes the best and latest datacenter technologies. It puts you in control of all your infrastructure and services.
Atomic Edition provides the best platform for your Linux-Docker-Kubernetes (LDK) application stack. It is a lightweight, immutable platform, designed with the sole purpose of running containerized applications. Atomic Host uses the same package repositories as Server Edition, and provides the latest versions of the Atomic.

- Live Image
- Live images allow you to preview Fedora before installing it. Instead of booting directly into the installer, a live image loads the same environment you’ll get after installation. Fedora Workstation and Fedora Spins are live images.
Use a live image to install your favorite system, test Fedora on new hardware, troubleshoot, or share with friends.
- DVD Image
- DVD images boot directly into the installation enviroment, and allow you to choose from a variety of packages that are provided with it. In Fedora 21, the DVD option is only available in the Fedora Server Edition.
Use the Fedora Server DVD image when you want customized Fedora Server installations using an offline installation source.
- netinstall Image
- The netinstall image boots directly into the installation environment, and uses the online Fedora package repositories as the installation source. With a netinstall image, you can select a wide variety of packages to create a customized installation of Fedora.
The Fedora Server netinstall image is a universal one, and can be used to install any Fedora Edition or your own set of favorite packages.
- ARM images
- For many ARM systems, Fedora provides preconfigured filesystem images. Write the image to removable media and boot directly into a Fedora installation that’s ready to use.
ARM devices often require special setup procedures that aren’t covered in this guide. Start learning about Fedora ARM at https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Architectures/ARM
- Cloud Images
- Fedora Cloud images are preconfigured filesystem images with very few packages installed by default. They include special tools for interacting with cloud platforms, and are not intended to be used outside of cloud environments.
Fedora Cloud comes in several varieties. The Fedora Cloud Base image is a minimal base for cloud deployments. The Fedora Cloud Atomic image is a Docker container host that uses Project Atomic technology for updates. A Docker base image for Fedora is also available.
Cloud images are preconfigured and do not require installation as described in this guide. Get started using Fedora Cloud at https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Cloud
- Boot Images
- The tiny images at https://boot.fedoraproject.org/ are written to CDs, USB drives, or even floppy disks. The BFO image loads installation media from Fedora’s servers and directly loads an installation environment, like the netinstall ISO.
BFO images work like PXE deployments, without having to set up a server.
