Fedora Linux

The Fedora Project is an offshoot from Red Hat Linux and was created by Red Hat in September 2003 after they discontinued Red Hat Linux at version 9. Red Hat use the Fedora Project as a proving ground for new technology which will eventually make it into their commercial Red Hat Enterprise Linux product, and have a more open development process which allows the community to contribute to the project.

Buy Fedora 8

Please note the current version of Fedora is now Fedora 9

Fedora 8 was released on November 8th. The relase summary and release notes are available on the Fedora Project website.

Fedora 8 comes on either a DVD containing a more full set of packages, or cut down live versions which boots from the media and can be installed from should you choose to; the live versions come in either Gnome, KDE or Xfce flavours. The 32 bit live versions can fit on a CD (and require at least a Pentium II processor) but the 64 bit versions are too big and come on DVD.

The Linux CD Mall will be reopening soon.

32 bit, 64 bit or PPC?

Select 32 bit if you have a Pentium or Celeron (meaning any Pentium or Celeron, including a Pentium 4, Pentium M, etc.) or the original Core Duo (not a Core 2 Duo).

Select 64 bit if you have a Core 2 Duo, Core Solo, Opteron, Athlon 64, Turion 64, or Sempron. (This also includes the newer "Intel Mac" machines.)

Select PPC if you have a modern Mac that's not an Intel Mac
