. About Fedora
The Fedora Project is a Red-Hat-sponsored and community-supported open-source project. It is also a proving ground for new technology that may eventually make its way into Red Hat products and it is not a supported product of Red Hat. The goal of The Fedora Project is to work with the Linux community in order to build a complete, general purpose operating system exclusively from free software.
