Fedora 31: Peering into Red Hat Enterprise Linux's future

Filed under
Red Hat

After a brief delay, while last-minute bugs were fixed, Fedora 31 has just rolled out the door, and besides being a worthy Linux distribution in its own right, it's even more interesting for what it tells us about parent company Red Hat's future plans for Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL).

We tend to think of Fedora as a desktop operating system, but while it's great at that role, it's far more than that. Besides golden oldies such as the self-explanatory Fedora Workstation and Fedora Server, we also now have Fedora CoreOS, Fedora IoT, and Fedora Silverblue.

Fedora 31 is here -- download the world's best desktop Linux

  • Fedora 31 is here -- download the world's best desktop Linux distribution now

    Is Fedora popular? Well, is any desktop Linux distribution truly popular in the grand scheme of things? I mean, look, Windows holds an insurmountable lead in the desktop operating system space -- it cannot be denied. Amongst Linux distributions, however, yes, Fedora is very popular comparatively. Why do people choose it over other distros, such as Ubuntu, MX Linux, or Manjaro? It's simple -- Fedora is a no-nonsense operating system with a genuine focus on free and open source software. Not to mention, it is fairly bleeding edge while remaining stable.

    So, yeah, Fedora is wonderful. Today, however, the Linux distribution gets even better. You see, following the beta period, Fedora 31 is now available for download. Is it an exciting release? No, not really. Sure, enthusiasts will find themselves thrilled withe inclusion of the GNOME 3.34 desktop environment (with Qt Wayland by default), Linux 5.3 kernel, and Mesa 9.2, but otherwise, it is fairly boring. You know what? That's not a bad thing. In 2019, Fedora is simply a mature and stable operating system that only needs to follow an evolutionary path at this time -- not revolutionary. It stands alone as the world's best desktop Linux distribution.

  • Paul Mellors [MooDoo]: Fedora 31

    Well it seems like Fedora 31 has been release, I'm feeling the need for an upgrade.

    I think i'll just download the ISO from here - but I know I can upgrade from the command line, so if you don't know how to do it, try this [please note i've not tried it so if it hoses your system, erm sorry], it also might cause issues if you have any third party repos enabled on your system, but give it a try any way.

  • Fedora 31 released (Linux distros)

    Fedora 31 is here, and it brings a number of improvements, new features, and other software updates.

    Fedora is a free and open source GNU/Linux-based operating system backed by the folks at Red Hat… a company which was acquired by IBM earlier this year. So it’s good to see that it continues to receiver regular updates.

  • Fedora 31 has just rolled out

    Many under the armor improvements and a lot of changes, new features, and new graphical experiences: here we are, the new Fedora 31 release.

    Obviously, the big GUI step forward for Fedora Workstation is the latest GNOME 3.34 update, which brings some visual changes, different functions, and real performance improvements.

    Fedora 31 also drops the 32-bit support, so now you can’t find 32-bit ISO images on Fedora Downloads. Fedora Media Writer and the Fedora 31 x86_64 DVD ISO are available on the page and they make it really easy to give Fedora a try. Another lost is about Docker package: it has been removed from Fedora 31. It has been replaced by the upstream package moby-engine, which includes the Docker CLI as well as the Docker Engine.

Proxmox VE 6 and later offers container features, better security

The virtualization industry is full of proprietary and open source products that provide IT administrators with a variety of options for deploying their virtual environments. One product in particular that has not received as much attention is Proxmox VE, an open source virtualization management platform that tightly integrates both the KVM hypervisor and Linux container (LXC) technologies. Proxmox VE's most recent release, 6.1, includes the latest updates to the product, such as new container features, easier management, better security and improvements in availability. Admins might choose a propriety product to get a system that's highly polished and well supported, or they might opt for an open source offering in order to have access to the codebase and reduce operating costs. Proxmox VE 6 released in July of 2019 and was quickly followed by version 6.1 that following December. [...] Proxmox Virtual Environment, or Proxmox VE, is a complete server virtualization platform based on the Debian GNU/Linux distribution. Proxmox VE is a free, open source OS and is known for its ability to manage both KVM and LXC in a single, unified platform. By incorporating both KVM and LXC into its platform, Proxmox VE can deploy a wide range of use cases. According to Proxmox VE documentation, the platform supports the most demanding Linux and Windows application workloads, while still delivering performance and high availability (HA). For example, admins can scale out compute and storage resources as their requirements change, starting with a single node and expanding to a large cluster to accommodate growing workloads. Read more
