Our recommended distribution for newcomers to Raspberry Pi and day-to-day use.
A little buggy, so for now we're recommending beginners use Debian Squeeze.
The Remix is a distribution comprised of software packages from the Fedora ARM project, plus a small number of additional packages that are modified from the Fedora versions or which cannot be included in Fedora due to licensing issues — in particular, the libraries for accessing the VideoCore GPU on the Raspberry Pi.

The easiest way to install the Raspberry Pi Fedora Remix is to grab the installer, written by Jon Chiappetta. Here are the links:
Fedora RPM: fedora-arm-installer-1.0.0-1.fc16.noarch.rpm
Windows ZIP: fedora-arm-installer-1.0.0.zip
Other systems: faii-1.0.0.tar.gz (Python script)
(Two notes about the current Windows release:  you may need to right-click and select "Run as Administrator" to access the SD card, and  the installer may have problems with paths that include spaces. Both of these issues will be addressed in a future version of the installer). The Windows installer works on Windows Vista and Windows 7 (but not XP).
The installer automates the process of downloading the image, decompressing it, and installing it onto an SD card.
To use it:
When the installer is done, you'll have a 1.6 GB image installed on the SD card.
The SD card image for the Remix includes a little over 640 packages, providing both text-mode and graphical interfaces (LXDE/XFCE) with an assortment of programming languages, applications, system tools, and services for both environments. There are over 16,000 software packages available from the Fedora ARM repositories which can be easily installed using the Internet to customize your system to meet your needs and interests (again, using either command-line or graphical tools).
Some of the highlights of the software included in the SD card image:
