Fedora OS contains wide range of software prebundled or available in repository for easy access  and installation. Fedora by default uses Gnome desktop environment but it also provide option to install fedora with KDE, Xfce, LXDE, Cinnamon, MATE, Sugar desktop. Fedora uses RPM package management and software can be easily found in Fedora. We can easily download and install packages using yum package manager or Gnome software which is graphical package manager. There are third party repositories too for providing software in Fedora, of which RPM Fusion is one of the most famous repositories. Fedora also provide a service named Copr which let's the users to create their own repository.

Fedora is rather very stable distro but along with the stable part, Fedora is indeed popular for it's bleeding edge nature. Fedora is known for bringing new technologies, experimenting new innovations. Fedora also provide strong security. It provides various security modules to customize and give a strong security to your PC. Fedora also works on upstream communities of Linux due to which the innovations are not only limited to Fedora but available for all the Linux distro. Fedora is kinda distro which bring new things first and then it's spread all among the other distros. Fedora is completely free and open community, you have full permission to redistribute Fedora iso to your friends or any person who is interested in using Fedora. More on it Fedora works openly and transparently, therefore encouraging and inviting people all around the world to work with Fedora project if interested.
