  • Email:
  • Product: Workstation
  • Responsible WG: Workstation WG and Team Silverblue (formerly Atomic Workstation SIG)

Current status

  • Targeted release: Fedora 29
  • Last updated: 2018-06-18
  • Tracker bug: <will be assigned by the Wrangler>

Detailed Description

The Atomic Workstation is being rebranded as Fedora Silverblue, to give this project more visibility and realize its full potential for bringing new users to Fedora. There is new website,, which is gathering information and resources around this effort.

Benefit to Fedora

The Atomic Workstation has been an 'undercover' effort so far that was created as a by-product of Project Atomic, but it was not widely known. The name change and the new website are aiming to make this Workstation variant more prominent. The Atomic variant is better suited for some use cases than the traditional Workstation and will make Fedora more attractive for those users.
