What are Spins?

The default desktop environment of Fedora is GNOME, but if you prefer an alternative desktop environment such as KDE Plasma Desktop or Xfce, you can download a spin for your preferred desktop environment and use that to install Fedora, pre-configured for the desktop environment of your choice.

Downloading

Spin downloads are offered via direct download, but you can also get them via Bittorrent. In this case you will need to install a Bittorrent client in order to download a spin. If you cannot use Bittorrent, some spins offer alternative download methods.

Using

Spins are provided as ISO files. You may use the ISO file to create a new virtual machine, or you can burn the ISO in a special way to a USB stick or optical media to run the spin on hardware.
