The Fedora Project was officially born Sept. 22, 2003, and Red Hat Linux officially drew its last breath in 2004 as a supported offering. Fedora has been the only free non-enterprise Linux release from Red Hat ever since. From a commercial standpoint, Red Hat Enterprise Linux is Red Hat’s flagship platform and in many respects, its continued success today is due in part to the success of Fedora over the last 10 years. Many features that land in a Red Hat Enterprise Linux release are first proven by community use in Fedora.
In a video interview with eWEEK, Fedora Project Leader Robyn Bergeron reflects on 10 years of Fedora and discusses what the future might hold.
