Fedora Core

Like most Linux distros, Fedora is a massive, sprawling project. Frankly, it's sprawl-y to the point that it has felt unfocused and a bit lost at times. Just what is Fedora? The distro has served as a kind of showcase for GNOME 3 ever since GNOME 3 hit the beta stage. So Fedora in theory is meant to target everyday users, but at the same time the project pours tremendous energy into building developer tools like DevAssistant. Does that make Fedora a developer distro? A newbie-friendly GNOME showcase? A server distro? An obscure robotics distro?

Today, the answer to all the above questions is "yes." And the way to make sense of it all is what Fedora calls Fedora.Next.

I stopped using Fedora as my home Linux distro a couple of years ago because of the way each yum would download hundreds of MB each day in updates.


Take a look at fedora-updates.repo file located on /etc/yum.repos.d/ directory and set metadata_expire to your preferred time say a week. Default is set to 6 hours on my system.
