During the closing of the Release Party I mentioned the high praise Fedora 36 has been having on the Linux-oriented Youtube channels, even though the big ones haven’t released their reviews (And since Nick, from The Linux Experiment, uses Fedora as his main distro, it might take a bit more). There, @mattdm suggested a post to consolidate these reviews, so here I am.
Starting-up with The Tech Hut, one of the channels that helped me A LOT in my Linux journey. He not only uses Fedora as his distro of choice, he also released a 7-step guide for those who did just install F36.
The Review: Fedora 36 - Simply the BEST Linux Distro - YouTube
The guide: 7 Things You MUST DO After Installing Fedora 36 - YouTube
Then, my other source of early-linux learning, Learn Linux TV. They not only have great guides for beginners, but also more advanced videos focused on servers.
Review: Why Fedora 36 is a great GNOME Distro! (Full Review) - YouTube
The next one is in spanish (my mother tongue), but I add it here because of its final remarks (roughly translated): “Fedora 36 is miles ahead of Ubuntu 22.04”
Locos por Linux: Fedora 36 Workstation - YouTube
The other two I found over there are from a bit smaller channels.
Jeremy’s Tech Channel: Will I Switch To Fedora 36? A Walk Thru Of This Amazing Linux Distro - YouTube
Tyler’s Tech: Fedora 36 | It just works! - YouTube
Feel free to add other reviews.
Nice, I was hoping to see Tech Hut and LearnLinuxTV here!
This one by DistroTube is unfortunately not as positive as the others, but I think it could be good as a point of feedback. He decided to cover the i3 spin of F36 since the flagship edition gets the most attention from other YouTubers.

I am also very interested in what Nick from Linux Experiment has to say. I know most folks will review a distro and leave it at that, but in my opinion he has some good ideas and analysis about the Linux landscape in general, and I wonder if that will come out in his review.
9to5Linux has been publishing their reviews on Fedora Workstation and it’s spins. Is not my kind of content, quite too slow and text instead or even a voiceover. I think there’s a web counterpart to these videos.
Again, is not my kind of video, but here they are.
I want to attract the attention of @duffy since there is a “Reviewed by” button in the new design of the Workstation page.
Veronica Explains did a video on Fedora 36 KDE. The production took place in the late beta phase. However, is quite a good review.

(Love the music, by the way)
DJ Wave made a in-depth review on Fedora 36 Silverblue - Fedora Silverblue 36 Review - YouTube
A bit long and quite technical… Even structured like a class.
Linux Tex - Fedora 36 Released! And it is SERIOUS Competition to Ubuntu! (2022)
Lots of neat graphics, but the feedback was also positive.
More than a review of the system per se, is about using Fedora with the Framework Laptop - LINUX | FEDORA 36 on the FRAMEWORK Laptop | Installation, First Steps, Verdict | Awesome combo! - YouTube
It is known that everything works out-of-the-box with Fedora, no tinering needed.
InfinitelyGalactic’s return to action is a dedicated video, not only for F36, but the Fedora Project as a whole.
