Fedora 20 in a variety of flavours has arrived for anyone interested in trying out the newest version of this long standing Linux distro. They have native support for just about any desktop environment you could want without the need to release separate versions for each. It also offers full support for ARM processors, either small devices or multitudes of processors strung together into something a little more powerful. If you are uncertain about how much you trust the new OS, follow the comments at Slashdot to see what challenges people have encountered.
"The Fedora Project has announced the release of Fedora 20, code named Heisenbug (release notes). Fedora 20 is dedicated to Seth Vidal, the lead developer of Yum and the Fedora update repository, who recently died in a road accident. Gnome is the default DE of Fedora, and so it is for Fedora 20. However unlike Ubuntu (where they had to create different distros for each DE) Fedora comes with KDE, XFCE, LXDE and MATE. You can install the DE of your choice on top of base Fedora."
