Fedora {PRODVER} can be installed and used on systems with limited resources for some applications. Text, VNC, or kickstart installations are advised over graphical installation for systems with very low memory. Larger package sets require more memory during installation, so users with less than 768MB of system memory may have better results preforming a minimal install and adding to it afterward.
Fedora {PRODVER} provides software to suit a wide variety of applications. The storage, memory and processing requirements vary depending on usage. For example, a high traffic database server requires much more memory and storage than a business desktop, which in turn has higher requirements than a single-purpose virtual machine.
Fedora {PRODVER}'s default desktop environment, *GNOME3*, functions best with hardware acceleration. Alternative desktops are recommended for users with older graphics hardware or those seeing insufficient performance with *LLVMpipe*.
Fedora {PRODVER} supports most display adapters. Modern, feature-rich desktop environments like *GNOME3* and *KDE Plasma Workspaces* use video devices to provide 3D-accelerated desktops. Older graphics hardware may *not support* acceleration:
For best results on systems with less than 1GB of memory, use the DVD installation image.
Graphical installation of Fedora requires a minimum screen resolution of 800x600. Owners of devices with lower resolution, such as some netbooks, should use text or VNC installation.
