Fedora 22 Workstation : Video Overview and Screenshot tours

Fedora Project have just released the latest version of Linux Distribution, Fedora 22. It now available for download for all the new flavors, Workstation, Server, and Cloud.

Accoording to Fedora 22 official announcement. "Every Fedora release has its own character. If this release had a human analogue, it'd be Fedora 21 after it'd been to college, landed a good job, and kept its New Year's Resolution to go to the gym on a regular basis. What we're saying is that Fedora 22 has built on the foundation we laid with Fedora 21 and the work to create distinct editions of Fedora focused on the desktop, server, and cloud (respectively). It's not radically different, but there are a fair amount of new features coupled with features we've already introduced but have improved for Fedora 22,"

Looking to install Linux, but don't know which make(?)

Hello Linux Users,

I'm currently running my laptop (note laptop, I couldn't see a laptop option on details) on windows 8. I've decided to change my OS to Linux, however I don't know which one to use. I need one that is user friendly and has a nice user interface. I was thinking about getting ubuntu but I wasn't too sure.

I am coming to the forums for help finding a OS that is good for my personal needs. So if you decide to help me, here is a list of things that I require:

A easy-to-use interface, preferably a hot bar, like the Ubuntu desktop.

Nice clean software, no windows vista like, clunky, boxy, interfaces.

A system that I can easily play games on (steam games.)

Something that will allow me to multitask smoothly.

Another non-essential feature is a coherent source code that I can easily access and modify.

Thanks in advance

Lewis :)
