Fedora

Fedora is a Linux distribution maintained by the community driven Fedora Project and sponsored by Red Hat. It is used as the development version of Red Hat's commercial product, Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL), releases of which are forked from the Fedora code base.

Unlike with some distributions, such as Ubuntu, Red Hat ensures that all the software officially distributed with Fedora is under a free software license. However, third-party repositories such as RPM Fusion exist to provide software under other licenses specifically for Fedora.

The default desktop environment is Gnome but it also includes KDE and Xfce. Several "spins" (CD images) are available with specific subsets of software, such as for the KDE and Xfce desktop environments.
