Hi guys,

I want to apologize because I am asking already asked question but this forum is confusing me.

I need advice about fedora... At the moment I am using ubuntu 16.04 and I am running android studio, problem is that I want to switch to fedora because ubunut is too fancy with all things. Also, the second reason is that I want to learn how to use fedora, but the problem is that I do not know how well is android studio and android development supported under it.

So, can you please give me advice and help me to make up my mind about this situation.

Android Studio isn't exactly be "supported" under Fedora since it's a closed-source, commercial product. Linux distros usually make supporting open source software their priority.

In any case, Android Studio, the SDK, and the tools have been updated sometime recently and no longer require 32 bit libraries which is maybe what you mean by "too fancy". You only need a couple of dependencies, bzip2-libs and something else: I forget right now

Download is here: . Installation instructions for Fedora show up after you start the download.
