Fedora 36 has officially attained Beta status, which has been highly anticipated by many Linux users. Yes, you can get your hands on the pre-release operating system right now! Fedora is widely regarded as the most important Linux distribution based on the open source kernel by many Linux users. Why? Because it is a pure Linux experience, the distribution concentrates on fully free and open source software. Linus Torvalds, the father of Linux, is a well-known Fedora user.
What excites you about Fedora 36 Beta? The default desktop environment in this pre-release version of the forthcoming operating system is the brand-new GNOME 42. If you prefer the LXQt version of Fedora, you’ll be pleased to learn that it now supports version 1.0, which was published late last year. Plus, when utilising the proprietary graphics driver, customers with an NVIDIA GPU are in for a treat because GDM will use Wayland by default.
Mathew Miller, Project leader states, “Fedora 36 Workstation Beta includes GNOME 42, the newest release of the GNOME desktop environment. GNOME 42 includes a global dark style UI setting. It also has a redesigned screenshot tool. And many-core GNOME apps have been ported to the latest version of the GTK toolkit, providing improved performance and a modern look.”
Do you want to try out Fedora 36 Beta with GNOME 42? The ISO can be downloaded here. You may download a “spin” of Fedora that utilises a different desktop environment (such as KDE Plasma, Mate, or Cinnamon) here. The ARM version, which is suitable for devices such as the Raspberry Pi, is now available. Make sure to read the entire list of changes before installing the OS. Remember, this is a pre-release version of the operating system, so bugs and data loss are to be expected.
