Fedora meets RHEL

with 7 comments

As we enter the final freeze before the Fedora 27 Workstation release, I’d like to highlight a new feature that will hopefully make Fedora more attractive for developers. Last month, I had written about our experiments to make it easier to consume gratis, self-supported Red Hat Enterprise Linux installations from Fedora Workstation. I am happy to report that this is now a reality.


Starting from Fedora 27 Workstation, you’ll be able to install an infinite number of RHEL 7.x VMs right from inside GNOME Boxes. All you need is an account on, and it will automatically set up a RHEL virtual machine that’s entitled to the RHEL Developer Suite subscription.


Thanks to Felipe Borges for a seemingly endless round of patch reviews, and Fabiano and Victor for occasionally lending us their brain.

  2. As someone who codes using Red Hat technologies, I am happy to see the deepening connection between Fedora and Red Hat Developers. I look forward to more synergies going forward :).

  3. Awesome, but…. wouldn’t it be reasonable to expect a similar set up for CentOS?
