Making changes upstream instead of specifically for Fedora ensures that the changes are available to all Linux distributions.

Fedora has a relatively short life cycle: each version is usually supported for at least 13 months, where version The default desktop environment in Fedora is GNOME and the default user interface is the GNOME Shell.

Other desktop environments, including KDE Plasma, Xfce, LXDE, MATE and Cinnamon, are available and can be installed.

Flatpak is also supported by default, and support for Ubuntu's snaps can also be added.

Fedora uses Delta RPM when updating installed packages to provide Delta update.

A Delta RPM contains the difference between an old and new version of a package.

This means that only the changes between the installed package and the new one are downloaded reducing network traffic and bandwidth consumption.

Fedora uses Security-Enhanced Linux by default, which implements a variety of security policies, including mandatory access controls, which Fedora adopted early on.

Fedora comes installed with a wide range of software such as Libre Office and Firefox.

Additional software is available from the software repositories and can be installed using the DNF package manager or GNOME Software.
