Fedora is a free and open source operating system developed by a community of coders, but backed by the folks who make the commercial Red Hat Linux project. Fedora 22 is now available for download.

fedora 22_02

The operating system comes in three basic versions: workstation, server, and cloud. For most folks who want to run Fedora on a desktop or notebook, the Workstation version is what you need. The other two are aimed at hosting internet or personal cloud applications.

So what’s new in Fedora 22?

One of the biggest changes is a new package management system. Yum has been replaced with DNF. This is basically the system that lets you quickly and easy download and install software from Fedora repositories: GNU/Linux was doing app stores long before Apple. The Fedora team says DNF should offer better performance while consuming less memory.


If you use the standard version of Fedora that comes with the GNOME desktop environment, you get improved notifications and themes, and updated versions of the Nautilus file manager, image viewer, and other apps. Fedora is also available with the KDE Plasma or Xfce desktop environments.

Fedora for system with ARM-based processors also now have their own dedicated page. You can download several different configurations of Fedora Server or Fedora Workstation depending on your needs.

  1. Once RPMFusion is updated for F22, I’m good-to-go. F21 had become my workstation of choice and I’m looking forward to F22, but I need proprietary drivers for Broadcom WiFi and Bluetooth. I thank Dell for not using the Intel 7265ac in the XPS13 (Linux) Developer Edition. That’s freaking genius because every Linux developer should be running unsupported/tainted kernels!

    1. Have you upgraded to F22 ? does it work well ? I did it on my old Vostro and I have some graphic issues (i915 driver, GM45 chip) so hesitating doing it on my xps13 9343 which is also based on i915 (Intel HD Graphics 5500)

      1. Yes, I am very happy with Fedora 22. Dell, not so much, but they did allow me to purchase an Intel 7265ac from them. The Broadcom wireless is working with the Linux 4.0 kernel, both WIFI and Bluetooth, but post install using the standard kmod/akmod procedures.

        1. I actually just upgraded mine. I have the one with qhd screen and it is a pain getting the right configuration that makes the screen usable (fonts and icons too small etc..)
