I settled in with Scientific lab for several months now. For analytics, Jupyter Notebook comes pre-installed. It cuts down my time to search for apps and install/tinker.
All essential tools for collaboration with the Fedora Project are also included. For me, they are git, Podman, and Docker. Preparation time to contribute is instant after first boot.
Scientific lab runs on my modest specced 4GB RAM laptop smoothly.
