Actually, one of the purposes of projects like Fedora is to give you a
Linux-based operating system. So yes, Fedora includes the OS kernel
(Many will say to you that Fedora _is_ a GNU/Linux operating system.
This is wrong. You also get an large set of applications with Fedora,
most of them are open source applications. You also get a lot of
tools, like compilers.)
