Fedora 35 Linux-based operating system available for download with GNOME 41

Today is the day many of us have been waiting for -- Fedora 35 is officially here! Yes, folks, you can download the operating system immediately. For many Linux users, Fedora is considered the best distribution based on the open source kernel. Why? Because Fedora focuses on truly free and open source software -- a pure Linux experience. It is also fairly bleeding edge, while at the same time, remaining stable enough for daily use.

What makes Fedora 35 exciting? This version operating system uses the brand-new GNOME 41 as its default desktop environment. GNOME 41 is notable for having significant performance improvements when using Wayland. Speaking of Wayland, Fedora 35 Beta will run faster when using it with an NVIDIA GPU. Plus, version 35 Beta gets NVIDIA with XWayland, for an improved experience when using apps that aren't designed for Wayland.

"The new features and enhancements in Fedora 35 are aimed at improving the overall experience for all levels of users - from beginner to advanced. This release continues the Fedora Project's emphasis on delivering leading-edge open source technologies and includes updates spanning the Linux kernel to the desktop experience," says The Fedora Project.

We prioritize bringing the latest Linux innovation to our users. This latest version is focused on polishing features and support for improved performance and an even better user experience -- helping to bridge the gap between new and expert users."
