Sorry for this silly question but I am a newbie trying to learn linux and wondering what is Fedora or what is the difference between Fedora and linux?

Linux is a kernel which provides device drivers, memory management, networking, and other essential services. It is used by nearly all GNU systems, and a large number of systems that don't use GNU software.

Fedora is one of the most popular distributions of GNU/Linux, of which there are many. (Wikipedia lists 184 distributions of Linux based systems)
