Raspberry Pi users can now look forward to using a new operating system which should be available in the final quarter of this year for the latest Pi devices.
The previously unsupported Fedora operating system will now be fully operable on the Raspberry Pi 4, with approval granted from The Fedora Engineering and Steering Committee (FESCo) in the first week of August 2022.
There should be no surprise that Fedora 37 is yet another version of Linux, but its credentials extend far enough that it is rumored to be the chosen distro of Linux creator Linus Torvalds.
Fedora OS for Raspberry Pi
According to Phoronix, official signoff for Fedora 37 has been granted to the Raspberry Pi 4, the Raspberry Pi 400, and the Compute Model 4. It is expected that general availability shall begin in October 2022.
Fedora Workstation (one of three versions) is destined for use on the Raspberry Pi 4, which uses the familiar GNOME desktop environment. Graphics drivers, OpenGL drivers, and GPU certification for Vulkan are all behind this decision.
