The majority of the applications in Fedora are GNOME apps, perhaps because Fedora plays an important role in GNOME development.

The Fedora 24 Workstation for desktop users features GNOME 3.20 which includes changes like easier music controls, better photo editing, a better-looking search interface, shortcut windows features and a couple other little improvements. The Software app has also gotten new features which allow you to upgrade your Fedora easily.

Fedora Server is the version that comes with applications and packages suitable for running servers and the latest Fedora 24 Server version has more focus on modularity. Useless packages have been removed which in turn make the final installer lighter.

This new release features OpenShift Origin–a Kubernetes package for easier application development and deployment.
