Missing out systemd


"Fedora boasts a pretty “enterprisey” software set. You’re more likely
to find a fancy new virtualization program than a 3D shooter here.
That’s not to say it’s inappropriate for desktop use, quite the
opposite, but expect to find some applications that might not be of much
interest to a casual PC user. Still, for those who do like to know, you
can expect to find:

    * LibreOffice, a “freer” fork of OpenOffice
    * BoxGrinder, a virtual appliance utility
    * Robotics Suite, a set of tools for robot enthusiasts
    * Sugar, a specialized desktop environment for education
    * Dynamic Firewall, a way to interactively manage your system firewall
    * Gnome 3, of course"
