The Fedora TemplateVM
The Fedora TemplateVM comes preinstalled with Qubes OS. However, there may be times when you wish to install a fresh copy from the Qubes repositories, e.g.:
- When a version of Fedora reaches EOL (end-of-life).
- When a new version of Fedora you wish to use becomes supported as a TemplateVM.
