tl;dr: Old answers are bad.

I don't agree with all the other answers. We had yum a year ago and have dnf now. In 1 year we will have Wayland as default (hopefully) and not X11 (as today). Software gets renamed, packages get updates and new names (gtk2 → gtk3, qt4 → qt5, KDE → Plasma, …). Backends change (OpenGL → Vulkan, DRI2 → DRI3, …). Many answers don't apply any more. Anything more than 2 years old should be deleted in my opinion.

(No moderator either)
