Fedora Replaced Yum with DNF ?!?!

First off, I was kind of shocked yesterday when I went to grab an ISO of Fedora 21, and realized that 22 had been released. I hadn’t read or seen anything that mentioned it was coming out. Not that I’m all the hyped up to grab the latest version or anything.

I guess it’s actually been coming for a long time, but I’m not very current on most Linux news. I personally prefer CentOS, but it seems like the only version of Linux that my coworkers use is Fedora, so that’s what I have to support. I guess I can count my blessings though, at least it isn’t Ubuntu 😉

The side benefit of this is that Fedora and CentOS are pretty close, so I don’t usually have to learn the commands / how to do things two different ways.

From the article linked above, it sounds like DNF is going to be better than YUM, and actually started out as a fork from Yum.

According to tecmint, DNF is going to replace yum in Centos and Redhat as well, so that works for me 🙂
