Fedora formerly Fedora Core, is an RPM-based, general purpose collection of software, including an operating system based on the Linux kernel, developed by the community-supported Fedora Project and sponsored by Red Hat. Fedora’s flexibility makes it capable of serving as a digital repository for a variety of use cases. The Fedora Project's mission is to lead the advancement of free and open source software and content as a collaborative community.[1]
