    Fedora 27 is now under its final freeze for release in the next few weeks so here's a recap of the prominent changes coming to this next installment of the Red Hat sponsored Linux distribution...

    I often read that Debian and its derivatives are by far more popular than the other distributions. While I understand that their community have built such a beautiful and effective ecosystem over the years, I believe those same users should get familiar with Fedora as well. Fedora is an open window on open source software evolution and I’m always amazed by how fast its maintainers manage to incorporate new technologies release after release.

      Will it be GNOME 3.26 or GNOME 3.26.1?

        Fedora is really hampered by lacking many software options. Fedora Devs do integrate new system components like kernel, Mesa and so on in a fast manner, but if you look for any non packeged software in current versions, good luck. Ubuntu really really profits from their ppa infrastructures. Those offer a lot more stuff you'll never locate for Fedora.

          surely their COPR repo's are just as good as PPAs for the latest and greatest stuff - that and flatpacks will probably negate the need for huge distro specific package archives in the near future

            The difference is that there are less people packaging stuff for Fedora. It's really that simple.

                  Sometimes I miss "you know who" GTK/gnome/RH crap, once in a while wouldn't hurt

                    Probably a large part of the issue is that COPR wasn't even started until sometime in mid 2013, nearly a decade after Ubuntu and PPAs were available and long after Ubuntu already reached critical mass.
