Fedora Project this week announced the general availability of Fedora 26, the latest version of the fully open source Fedora operating system.

Fedora Linux is the community version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux, or RHEL. Fedora 26 comprises a set of base packages that form the foundation of three distinct editions targeting different users.

Fedora Atomic Host edition is an operating system for running container-based workloads. Fedora Server edition installs the Fedora Server OS on a hard drive. Fedora Workstation edition is a user-friendly operating system for laptops and desktop computers, suitable for a broad range of users — from hobbyists and students to professionals in corporate environments.

All three editions share a common base and some common strengths. All of the Fedora editions are released twice a year.

The Fedora Project is a testing ground for innovations and new features. Some will be implemented in upcoming releases of RHEL, said Matthew Miller, Fedora Project Leader.

“Fedora is not directly involved in those productization decisions,” he told LinuxInsider. “Fedora provides a look at many ideas and technologies, and it is a great place for Red Hat Enterprise Linux customers to get involved and provide feedback.”
