Fedora Atomic Workstation will be renamed to Fedora Silverblue
As early as early May, as a further evolution of the Fedora Atomic Workstation, the Silverblue project has been announced, and it hoped that the “atomic” system would implement when Fedora 30 is released. Now, starting with Fedora 29, we plan to rename Fedora Atomic Workstation to Fedora Silverblue officially.
Silverblue is by no means a meaningless name and is currently re-launching its brand plan around it. The latest Fedora 29 change proposal is to officially change the name of “Fedora Atomic Workstation” to “Fedora Silverblue.”
As Fedora explained, “The Atomic Workstation has been an ‘undercover’ effort so far that was created as a by-product of Project Atomic, but it was not widely known. The name change and the new website are aiming to make this Workstation variant more prominent. The Atomic variant is better suited for some use cases than the traditional Workstation and will make Fedora more attractive for those users.“
Fedora Silverblue 29 will still be the same as the beta or earlier version, and perhaps only Fedora Silverblue 30 has a chance to become an official version indeed. Fedora 29 is scheduled to be released in October this year.
