For the most part, Raspberry Pi users have only had one or two really strong operating systems to work with. If you’re looking to try something different, Pidora is an OS built on the Linux system Fedora.
All systems: Fedora 13, the latest version of the Linux desktop code-named Goddard, is available for testing out on a live CD, a USB stick, or, for the brave, hard drive installation. Automatic printer drivers, better graphics support, and more is included.
The popular Linux distribution Fedora (you know, the one that isn’t Ubuntu) has just released a new major version, Fedora 11, around six-and-a-half months after the release of Fedora 10. The changelog is extensive, but the result is an alluring operating system.
