I am worried that the spin iso might be missing other options I might need, so maybe I should use the server and select xfce. The box will be used as a server, and for complex software development, mostly in C and C++. The Boost library and various downloaded math software will also be used. What do you think? Thanks, Mike.

It doesn’t really matter which image you use to build your OS.

Every package that Fedora builds is available in the repository- and it is one common repository no matter what iso you use to install Fedora.

Either go with the server iso and install the Xfce desktop and whatever other packages you need, or install the XFCE spin and add the server services you need. Again, every package is coming from one common repository.

If you already know you want to have the XFCE desktop, I would go with that spin and add the rest as needed.
