Fedora is a distribution of GNU/Linux.  To a newcomer thinking of it as
an operating system is probably the best way in - IMH(and probably
mistaken)O.  It will broadly give you the equivalent functionality that
many people get by using a MS Windows Operating System on their
computer.

However, and most importantly, using any terms such as Operating System,
GNU/Linux, etc. will imediatly spawn the longest thread this month, and
give you a much better idea of the different sorts of people who use,
love, hate, fight over, discuss, argue and debate Fedora.  Just don't
mention Ubuntu.  :-)
