About Chapeau

Chapeau is a high-performance, cutting-edge operating system built from the GNU/Linux distribution Fedora Workstation with the Gnome desktop environment.

In comparison to Fedora, Chapeau adopts a more relaxed approach to software licences and is intended to be just as useful for advanced users as it is easy for those new to using a Linux system.
There is built-in access to third-party software & sources repositories not included in Fedora such as RPMFusion, DropBox, Steam, Adobe Flash & Oracle VirtualBox.

Chapeau also includes pre-installed core packages to make the installation of new kernel modules pain-free, built-in remote & virtual system management tools, a selection of maintenance tools that come in especially handy when running Chapeau’s live image on a DVD or USB drive to analyse & fix broken systems and many more subtle enhancements to the Fedora base.

Chapeau is available as an ISO image for 64bit PCs, grab yourself a copy and enjoy. Head over to the the FAQ to learn more.
