About Fedora Workstation

Fedora Workstation is an operating system designed to help businesses using Linux devices build, test and deploy application codes across virtual environments. Professionals can add software repositories and use the developer portal to utilize specific programming languages according to requirements. Fedora Workstation allows organizations to test and deploy codes across required platforms through GNOME boxes or scriptable virtualization tools. Developers can create virtual machines and utilize the built-in Open Container Initiative (OCI) structure to containerize/deploy out-of-the-box applications.

An operating system aimed at developers and digital content creators

I have used fedora for several years as an operating system for web development, being a stable and secure system for the same purpose and at the same time handling a number of libraries compatible with multiple programming languages. In another scenario, I have used this Linux distribution as a base operating system to virtualize machines and create a host environment and VMs.

Pros

What I like the most is its friendly interface and totally oriented towards developers and the different integrations that we can carry out with products and programming tools.

Cons

So far I have only used it for a programming workstation and it has worked

Reasons for switching to Fedora Workstation

This gives me a better user interface and integrations with other tools in an easier way to configure and manage

Free Linux OS, built for developers

Fedora Workstation is the best Linux OS for developing cutting-edge applications.

Pros

Fedora Workstation is an open-source operating system for personal computers. Best suited for developers who want to implement cutting-edge Linux features. Sleek GNOME desktop environment, open-source utilities, scriptable virtualization, and OCI image support are the best features of the Fedora Workstation.

Cons

It's less stable and slower than similar operating systems like Ubuntu and CentOS. Minor display bugs when running applications. Lacks minimize and maximize buttons for a window.

Reasons for choosing Fedora Workstation

We choose Fedora Workstation over other alternatives for its commitment to making a developer-friendly Linux operating system.

Reasons for switching to Fedora Workstation

Fedora Workstation supports the latest software updates, its GNOME desktop environment is clean and user-friendly. The community is active with a promise to update the OS every six months.

Easy and fast operating system

Overall, if it is the first linux operating system you use, I do not recommend it, now if you are looking for an optimal operating system to program this may be an option

Pros

It is an easy to use operating system, very safe and stable. It also has a customizable interface.

Cons

At first use it is not very user-friendly, it has a somewhat complex interface, but it is easy to adapt to it.

workstation with a cool interface

Pros

with a nice and fresh interface this product is very well finished and challenging, at least for my taste, it is a fast system and in particular it does not consume many resources, it is excellent for managing applications, the user interface makes it easy to use even for people who are not expert using linux.

Cons

I have nothing negative to say right now really, it's a good system

Reasons for switching to Fedora Workstation

it is always good to try new products in infrastructure

Fedora is a solid operating system, ideal for system admins that also work on CentOS or Redhat

Solid operating system that is easy to use for beginners while providing the speed and advanced features needed for system administrators.

Pros

Love the up to date releases, the quickness of the software and the ease of installation.

Cons

I upgraded to the beta for 36 and had some issues. 35 was very solid but with the issues I had during beta of 36 I opted to install another OS for one of my laptops used in the field.

Reasons for choosing Fedora Workstation

Most systems I work on are centos or redhat based operating systems so using a redhat based os seemed prudent.

An operating system I trust my development job on it!

I believe the Fedora Workstation is one of the most reliable and stable Linux distros that's aimed at making developer lives a lot easier. I have always loved Fedora and always recommend it to my colleagues and friends.

Pros

It's a free operating system that has great support and a fantastic community behind it. The updates are frequent and for a developer, it's a must to be able to grab and install the latest packages easily through the package management system. This makes Fedora my favourite distro over the competitors. It's has always been very reliable and robust since the day that I've started using it and the team behind the Fedora Workstation are always working hard to keep the os feature-rich and stable. I love the way that Fedora Workstation manages the resources on my machine as it only takes very little resources to handle the essential processes that the os depends on and leaves you with a massive amount of free resources available at your fingertip. It's always updated with cutting edge technology and always introduces the most recent ones in a way that its stability, reliability and safety isn't affected.

Cons

There are times that the dependent packages aren't pushed to the repository and you'd have to wait before being able to fully update your installed packages.
