Hi everyone! Hope you're all having a nice life! :)
I just bumped into this post while checking my feed https://www.networkworld.com/article/3633623/fedora-linux-declared-a-digital-public-good.html
An excerpt:
Fedora Linux has been recognized as a "digital public good" by the Digital Public Goods Alliance (DPGA), a strategy group set up by UNICEF to promote sustainable development through open-source solutions that contribute to an equitable world.
I've used Fedora on and off, and I kind of like it, but for some reason there's always something that drives away from it. For example, I recently used F34 with KDE on Wayland, and it was good, but I did have a few issues; freezes, apps stopped responding. I don't know if it was because of Wayland being still not fully "stable", at least in KDE, or the fact that it uses BTRFS, which openSUSE uses too, and I had similar issues with it too in X, but that was my experience. I think BTRFS needs to be in a disk with no other FS, i.e. ext4, because I had openSUSE and Fedora with BTRFS and Debian in ext4, I might be wrong, though. I like DNF, but I miss YUM. Congratulations to the Fedora project Team, and its users too! :)
Here's the link to the GPGA with the announcement for those interested https://digitalpublicgoods.net/registry/fedora-linux.html
