The popular Linux distribution Fedora has a new version coming out every 6 months along with old versions reaching their end of support. Next up is Fedora 36 which will be going end of life on May 16th, 2023.

What is Fedora Linux?

With its initial v1 release back in 2003, Fedora Linux is one of the most popular Linux distributions and is managed by the Fedora Project. The development is primarily sponsored by Red Hat on which the operating system is largely based. Aside from that, it is also the upstream source for Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL). Fedora has 5 editions available, Workstation, Server, CoreOS, Silverblue, and IoT. The main advantage of Fedora is its rapid adoption of new technologies.

Fedora Lifecycle

Fedora has a short lifecycle. Generally speaking, a new version is released every 6 months and is supported for 13 months. In scientific terms, version X is supported for 1 month after version X+2 is released, creating the 13-month lifecycle.
