Grab Your Rapsberry Pi-Flavoured Fedora Remix Right Now

By Sam Gibbs on at

The recommended Raspberry Pi Linux distro, the Fedora Remix we heard about last month, is finally available for download. It's even got a novice-friendly, easy-peasy installer for Windows that'll format the SD card, and do all the heavy lifting for you, so you can just slam the card into your Pi and boot the mini-marvel up.

If you were a little intimidated by the relatively complex nature of installing and setting up some of the other Raspberry Pi-compatible operating systems, then this Fedora Remix should be your first port of call. Those looking for multimedia capabilities will also be glad to know that it's optimised to take advantage of the Pi's GPU, and comes packing some office apps, GIMP and Firefox to boot.

The Raspberry Pi Foundation has got a pretty easy to follow first boot procedure written up too, so if you're at all in the dark about all this, hop on over and give the brief tutorial a read.

Now all we need are for the correct ports to be soldered on and the boards themselves to land in our laps. Then we'll be headed straight to the nearest TV to hook this bad boy up -- oh, the endless possibilities. [Raspberry Pi]
