Introducing Team Silverblue

by Matthias Clasen and Sanja Bonic –

Good news, everyone! In some parts of the world it is still May the 4th. And with this date comes great responsibility. Let's talk about Silverblue.

The Atomic variant of Fedora Workstation has been around for a few years. It has been a low-key operation that only a few people knew about and used. By now, most of the necessary pieces of infrastructure for a good desktop experience have fallen into place, and it is time to bring the Atomic Workstation to a bigger audience.

Atomic Workstation is dead. Long live Silverblue.

The Team Silverblue project is about taking the last few steps for turning the Atomic Workstation variant into a first-class product, and making it as good or better than the traditional variant for most use cases. A particular focus will be on developers, and we are working on better support for container-based workflows and pet containers in the desktop.

If you are interested in helping out, please join Team Silverblue. And if you think your use case would be a good fit for an image-based desktop OS, we'd like to hear from you!

We aim to make good progress on this project for Fedora 29 and plan to make Silverblue the preferred Workstation variant by Fedora 30.
