Fedora Plans to Party for 36 Like It’s 2022!

No matter how you Fedora, you might want to check out the release party that the folks behind Red Hat’s community distribution have planned.

Here’s a short article without an end.

If you’re a Fedora user, you might want to mark your calendar for May 12-14. It seems that the distro is planning a party for the release of Fedora 36.

It wasn’t that long ago that Fedora was considered to be primarily a developers’ distro (“a distro designed by developers for developers,” I often heard), meaning it was popular among those who spent spent their days at the command line building software (therefore knowing “how radio works,” as Firesign Theater might say), but was a bit difficult for mere mortals who only wanted to do simple things such as rocket science (because computer science certainly ain’t that).

These days, times have changed, and from what I perceive from watching Twitter (I watch it a lot, because unlike Netflix it has all my favorite shows) it’s getting a lot of uptake from everyday Linux users who just want to check email, write a letter or two (do people really still write letters), and stir up trouble on Facebook (which they tell me is where trouble lives these days). They find Fedora easy-to-use, secure, and stable, and most say they wouldn’t trade it for anything — not even Mint, which I completely don’t understand.

If you’re one of those people, listen up, you’re going to want to know this.

Fedora’s planning a release bash … and no, I’m not talking about the kind of bash you connect to through through a Linux terminal.

Of course, a bash for us computer nerds is a little different from a bash thrown by a bunch of frat boys.

“The program is still in the works, but we hope to include informational sessions that will feature updates about Fedora IoT, Podman 4.0, and a bunch more current community activities,” RIECATNOR said on the Fedora Community Blog. “Last, but certainly not least, we will be hanging out in the Fedora Museum WorkAdventure for our Hallway track. Thanks to our amazing community for all your contributions to the latest release of Fedora Linux. Let’s celebrate!”

Wowie-zowie, I’m ready to open up a bottle of near beer already, and I don’t even use Fedora.

“Please register on Hopin and join us on May 13th & 14th for a short program of informational sessions and social activities,” he said. “Make sure to save the dates, share the registration, and show up to party with Fedora Friends!”

I wonder if anyone will try to pick a fight with me if I show up wearing my Sunday-best Linux Mint T-shirt? Or, if they ask me what my favorite RPM is and I say 33.3333333333333333…ad infinitum?
