How would anyone be able to answer your question without knowing your requirements. Administrators have different needs and ways to get stuff done. Please add to your question.

After Fresh install

  1. Set Root password

  2. update the system

  3. Add RPMfusion repos

  4. dnf -y groupinstall "Development Tools"

  5. Install backup utility like timeshift

Other things depend on your requirements ... that we need to know

As many people say, the answer to the question is not easy. The settings differ depending on the purpose of use.

For servers, install only the services that meet your specific needs and use only those ports and services for administration.

However, since workstations are used for management and general use, they are more open secure than servers and have more settings for system efficiency like a hardware support - audio, video, display, etc for User friendliness is important.

 A. secure - Defines the degree of security - firewalld /selinux / open port  or service
 B. Check the graphic setup & GUI Select process and install and set your own language.
 C. Install system support and related tools.gcc,fortran,perl,java,db,python,kernel support.
 D. Hardware Support - install and set for system use
 E. Organize your favorite environment.

Important support for the Fedora configuration we use is much easier to deploy than for server installations because it is often included on workstations and the application is well-behaved.

Have a fun.....!!
