I’m not really a hardcore Fedora fan, but this video of Fedora 21 Workstation with GNOME 3.14 really looks inspiring. Doesn’t it?
I know, Fedora 21 is not today’s news, but I stumbled over this video and wanted to share it. And while we’re at it, why not take a look at a few features from Fedora 21, for those not that familiar with Fedora.
Fedora 21 Workstation released on the 9th of December 2014. There are also Fedora Server and Fedora Cloud. Have a look at the website to the Fedora Project, which looks nice and tidy. There you can get more information about the server and cloud editions. I’m going to make this short, so I will just add a few points.
The installer used is called Anaconda and is looking and working pretty good now, in my opinion. You may not have heard of it, or even seen it if you are not familiar with .rpm distributions, like Fedora, Korora, CentOS and Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

Another thing you may not be familiar with is the GUI software package manager for GNOME, which is called Software. It looks clean and simple, and more inspiring than the old looking Ubuntu Software Center, if you ask me.

Other specs of Fedora 21: Linux kernel 3.17, Wayland support, GNOME classic mode available, and built-in Docker support.
Maybe Fedora doesn’t sound that interesting to you? Well, you could try a Fedora derivative, like Korora. Korora is a distro that “just works” out of the box, with Flash and non-free codecs pre-installed. Have a look at the Korora Project website to find out more.
