asked on

Is Fedora an appropriate distro for the environment.

In order to enhance security, a tech at a very occasional client of mine wants to replace the Windows 7 workstations with Linux workstations using Fedora. When asked why Fedora, he replied it was because it was the distro with which he was most familiar.

This is a workgroup environment with about a dozen or so computers for a real estate loan company which is just now becoming very concerned about security.

I don't have a problem with replacing Windows 7 with Linux on the workstations, as long as the workstations are able to maintain the company's business. The problem for me is I haven't worked with Linux in years and know next to nothing about different Linux distros to know if Fedora is the best option.

And if Linux replaces Windows, are there some configuration changes over and above the standard installation to enhance usability and/or security?

Would appreciate all suggestions.

Thanks
