Fedora Media Writer’s worth mentioning features:

  • Fedora Media Writer automatically downloads the latest stable Fedora Workstation or Server edition (in this example, I’ve used Fedora 30 for both Workstation and Server editions);
  • with Fedora Media Writer you can automatically download your own favourite Fedora spin such as:
    • Fedora Xcfe desktop;
    • Fedora LXQt desktop;
    • Feodora KDE Plasma desktop;
    • Fedora Mate-Compiz desktop;
    • Fedora Cinnamon desktop;
    • Fedora LXDE desktop;
    • Fedora Soas desktop.
  • Fedora Media Writer even has the option of automatically writing the Fedora ISO to the USB drive once it finished downloading it;
  • And according to Fedora’s homepage, here are Fedora’s minimum requirements:
    • “all you need is a 2GB USB flash drive, and Fedora Media Writer”;
    • “Fedora requires a minimum of 10GB disk, 1GB RAM, and a 1GHz processor to install and run successfully”.
