Fedora Atomic Desktops family of atomically updatable distributions unveiled


Recommended Posts

The Fedora Project has announced (https://fedoramagazine.org/introducing-fedora-atomic-desktops/) the unification (https://www.opennet.ru/opennews/art.shtml?num=60582) of the naming of custom builds of the Fedora Linux distribution that use the atomic update model and monolithic system layout. Such variants of the distribution are organized into a separate family of Fedora Atomic Desktops.

Builds in this family will be referred to as "Fedora Atomic Desktops". At the same time, it was decided to keep the old name for already recognized and long-existing atomic builds.

Fedora Atomic builds are delivered as a monolithic image that is not separated into separate packages and can be updated as a whole by replacing the entire system image. The base environment is built from official Fedora RPM packages using the rpm-ostree toolkit and mounted in read-only mode. Flatpak is used to install and update additional applications.
