On the DVD

64-bit

Fedora, one of the best-known Linux distributions, functions as the testing ground for Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Fedora is known for introducing new features that often become standard on other distributions, and Fedora Workstation 35 is no exception.

Many of the new features are due to the introduction of Gnome 41. Not only does Gnome 41 include additional support for Wayland, but it also offers a revamped app for installing software; the Connections app, which configures remote connections over VNC and RDP; Gnome's Mobile Network panel for cellular connections; and Parental Controls. Another new feature is a Multitasking panel for configuring common settings for switching apps and workspaces. By default, power modes are enabled to give users the choice of increasing their machine's environmental friendliness at a minor cost in performance. Outside of Gnome, Fedora Workstation includes several new games; enhanced Bluetooth support for PipeWire, the audio and video server introduced in the previous release; and increased Wayland support for NVidia graphics cards. In addition, a repository for Flatpak packages is now enabled by default, along with the traditional repositories for RPM packages.

If you have used Fedora, you know that you cannot go wrong installing it on your desktop. If you are new to the distro, you are in for a pleasant surprise, no matter what your level of expertise.
