Fedora Silverblue

“Fedora Silverblue is an immutable desktop operating system. It aims to be extremely stable and reliable. It also aims to be an excellent platform for developers and for those using container-focused workflows.”

Fedora Silverblue User Guide

Silverblue is a great OS for new linux users because it keeps new applications and updates separated from the base system and is easy to install. This immutable design makes it more stable because every installation of the same version is identical on every device. Applications can be installed and managed using Flatpak, an easy to use package manager created by Fedora.
