"What is Fedora, exactly?

Fedora is a Linux-based operating system, a suite of software that makes your
computer run. You can use the Fedora operating system to replace or to run
alongside of other operating systems such as Microsoft Windows™ or Mac OS X™."

Are M$ Windows or Mac OS X test beds too ?
