After having used Windows as the Main operating system for about the past two years of Engineering, I’m finally switched to Fedora as my main OS. So far the Fedora experience has been going excellent.
What is Fedora?
Basically, Fedora is a popular open source Linux-based operating system.
How I came to know about Fedora?
I saw fedora OS for the first time in my college lab during ‘Basic concepts of operating systems like UNIX, MS DOS class’. I was not familiar with Linux at that time. Later, when I joined dgplug, They introduced us to Linux and suggested to use Fedora for all work during the session.
Switching to Fedora finally
After using fedora for more than a year, I was impressed by its simplicity, flexibility and easy to use considering myself as a newbie to Linux. It offers pure GNOME with clean Desktop.
I think Fedora is best OS if you want to move to Linux from Windows. It is easy to use and Desktop Environment provides smooth and is easy for users, especially for those who are moving from windows OS. Because It’s not easy to switch directly to the terminal based environment.
I still use Windows for gaming and some other’s work. I am trying to find alternatives to those app or software in Fedora. My machine is running on dual boot currently, Fedora 26 and Windows 10.
I’ve run Fedora for last one years with a consistently reliable experience, and I look forward to what the next one brings. My most used Linux applications are the GNOME Terminal, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Mozilla Thunderbird, Gedit, and ViM.
I will write more about Fedora in my next posts. 🙂
Looking forward to exploring more “How does a computer works”
