Ten years ago the folks at Red Hat decided to spin off a free, open source, and community-supported Linux operating system. They called it Fedora, and before Ubuntu and Linux Mint came along, it was probably one of the most popular (and easy to use) Linux distributions.
Now the team has released Fedora 20, a new version which adds improved support for ARM-based processors, cloud computing, virtualization, and more.
While earlier builds of Fedora supported ARM-based processors, this is the first build to treat ARM has a primary architecture, which means it’s basically on equal footing with x86 and x86_64 chips. Fedora 20 also makes it easier to run ARM virtual machines on an x86 system, includes cloud images for running from Amazon Web Services or other cloud services, newer versions of the GNOME and KDE desktop environments, and more.
If you’d prefer a different desktop environment, you can also now find Cinnamon Desktop or Enlightenment E17 in the Fedora repositories.
Fedora 20 also includes improved network management, improved fonts, 3D printing improvements, and some new features for developers.
