fedora one of the most robust

What do you like best?

I like it Because there is enough information, Fedora has a huge user base, and with this I do not mean that it is the biggest of all or something, but that its users are always willing to help new ones, and you will always find some other enthusiastic user that write their tips in a blog to which you can directly ask any of your questions.

What do you dislike?

Many hardware devices are not designed for the base of your operating system. Therefore its installation can be tedious.

- Many windows applications can not be executed. Therefore any complex windows document (eg: docx, xlsx, pptx, xps, etc.) is difficult to work

For linux there is a very small number of installable games (which does not prevent that they can be played thanks to emulators or virtual machines.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Used by NASA, Be that as it may, the important point is that Fedora is a distribution widely used by different people around the world regardless of their work, lifestyle or knowledge.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

one of the most robust operating systems.

What do you like best?

the ability of this operative system to consume ram memory efficiently, it does it a lot better than windows, the applications run smoothly due to this great advance, it does not write the hard disk with hidden files, when I am connected in a network, it recognizes the different distributions that are connected in it.

What do you dislike?

many external devices are not configured for linux which makes it a bit tedious to install and use in linux-based systems, there are applications in windows that I can not use in this operating system either.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is very easy to use once you get used to tasks, you can perform them more efficiently and even mount and dismount external devices.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use this operating system as my workstation, to run some scripts and cron, for different applications that I manage.

safe and light operating system

What do you like best?

I like it because it allows me to manage the RAM in a better way as some proprietary softwares do, such as windows, thanks to its configurations I do not fill the hard drive with hidden files, besides the hardware consumption of my computer is low that is to say, it consumes few resources in composition with other operating systems, thus allowing me to execute a greater number of programs. In addition to the benefits of security that this operating system provides, in addition to being an open source operating system allows me to make changes that suit my needs.

What do you dislike?

one of the things that I dislike is that it has little support for private hardware, that is, most of these hardware are not designed to operate with linux being this an impediment when configuring certain things, such as network cards , sound devices, video cards among others.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you have a stable and fast system and in addition to this, I strongly recommend using FEDORA one of the best in its form.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use fedora, as an operating system in the workstations due to its fluidity and the adaptation of its configurations to the different tasks we perform, we adapt it by modifying the kernel and adapting its parameters.

Bloat-less GNU/Linux with stability in mind.

What do you like best?

Coming from highly customizable Linux distributions, such as Gentoo and Archlinux, I needed to reach a sweet spot between stability, frequently updated packages versions and user-adjustable system. I found Fedora as a good candidate for that sweet spot and thus has it proven to be since release 23.

During the last 4 years I've been using Fedora at home and at work, never happened that a system upgrade stopped my system from working. I have a laptop which has been through 3 mayor distribution release upgrades without having to re-install the system, just keep pushing the distribution version up with "dnf system-upgrade"

What do you dislike?

Doesn't provide out-of-the box compatibility with Nvidia closed drivers whereas, for example, Ubuntu offers a GUI assistant which makes it easy to install and load closed kernel modules for GPUs.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Don't be afraid of moving form other distributions, it doesn't disappoint. Once you install a Fedora release, you'll be able to keep updated with the latest packages and releases ... for years and years.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

From my developer Desktop machine to my cluster of 6 Raspberries Pi 3, going through databases & web server machines.

Fedora For School Assignments

What do you like best?

I like how the environment is stable for the most part. It's easy to navigate, I was easily able to set up through a virtual environment. My online course through BYU-I has us do all our lab assignments within the Fedora VM environment. Is great because the professor was able to preload everything and have it all set up beforehand.

What do you dislike?

I don't really have anything to comment on far as dislikes. There was on time that it crashed on me and I had to reload my Fedora environment. Luckily I saved my work outside the VM. But the whole crashing may have to do with the VM software, however, profession mentioned we should save our work after each lab so that tells me it crashes often.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I'm personally impressed with Fedora and how it has allowed me to have a positive course experience. The structure of the course, created by leveraging Fedora is well done. I suggest Fedora push to break more into the educational industry. More and more courses are being taught via online, and more and more are computer science related. Fedora software can really facilitate this expansion.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The business problem we that is being solved by Fedora is how to implement SQL oracle lab work for students when they don't physically have access to the school network. You want each student to start off in the same environment but individually be able to modify it. Fedora solved this issue. We all pre-loaded a copy of the Fedora environment on to our personal computers and access it through a VM tool. All modification of files is saved within my personal environment, I have access to the terminal, SQL developer, Firefox, gEdit, all application loaded into the environment. I'm impressed at how the Fedora environment really allows me to complete my course labs and allows me to have real-world experience and build that skill.
