I can't believe they're up to 40. I remember installing Fedora Core 1 like it was yesterday. Yum (and now dnf) has come a long way. It used to have to individually retrieve metadata files for every available package, rather than using a single compressed index of all the packages available in the repository you were using. It made just getting to the stage where dependencies were calculated take forever.

1 every 6 months or so. so 2 per year. The main difference with other distros is that Fedora is always improving and adding new tech developed in various projects that make part of the FOSS world.

I too remember installing FC1. I've ran every release since then and the only time I've done fresh installs was whenever I got a new computer.

Ran the beta of KDE Spin since it released. Great update :)

They completely left out the fact that KDE got HDR support

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991 by Linus Torvalds. Linux is typically packaged in a Linux distribution (or distro for short).

Distributions include the Linux kernel and supporting system software and libraries, many of which are provided by the GNU Project. Many Linux distributions use the word "Linux" in their name, but the Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to emphasize the importance of GNU software, causing some controversy.
