Fedora 21 Workstation Is Making Great Progress
Written by Michael Larabel in Fedora on 2 October 2014 at 08:37 AM EDT. 3 Comments
Red Hat's Christian Schaller has blogged about the current state of Fedora's Workstation project -- overall it's getting into very good shape -- being in between the alpha and beta stages for Fedora 21.

Christian's lengthy blog post covers the Wayland session advancements for Fedora 21 although it still is run as the non-default session, software installation improvements for Fedora Workstation, and general user-interface polishing.

Christian ended his post with, "Last but not least I want to say that while I am very excited about what we have put together for Fedora Workstation 21 it is just the beginning. Being the first release under the new 3 product strategy a lot of time and effort has gone into re-jigging the whole Fedora development process to cater for having 3 different products instead of one, changing the way the Fedora community organize itself, get contributors on board and re-aligned with the new products and so on and also refocus our internal development teams at Red Hat to start thinking about their development process and goals with contributing to these 3 new products in mind. So my expectation is that as we go towards Fedora Workstation 22 the pace of innovation and progress will only pick up. So great things are ahead and I hope that once Fedora Workstation 21 is released regardless of if you are a long time Fedora users, a lapsed former Fedora users or someone who has never tried Fedora before you will be willing to give it a try and hopefully become as excited about it as we are."

My Fedora Workstation encounters of the 21 Alpha have also been great as outlined in Fedora 21 Alpha First Impressions: It's Great. I'm still running Fedora 21 on several systems around the office and it's working out great!
