Fedora 28 Launches with a Focus on Server Modularity, Latest Linux Technologies

Powered by the latest GNU/Linux and Open Source technologies, the Fedora 28 operating system looks to be a great release and the first to introduce long-anticipated modular repository for the Fedora Server edition, allowing sysadmins to choose between different available branches of server-oriented software programs, such as Django or Node.JS. It also ships with the Kubernetes 1.9 production-grade container orchestration tool, and the latest Linux 4.16 kernel. Among some of the major changes included in the Fedora 28 release, we can mention support for 64-bit ARM (Aarch64) as primary architecture for Fedora Server, GNOME 3.28 as default desktop environment for Fedora Workstation, GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) 8 as default system compiler, accompanied by Golang 1.10 and Ruby 2.5, automatic updates for Fedora Atomic Host, and an easier way to enable various third-party repositories, including those containing the proprietary Nvidia graphics drivers.
