Korora 23 Review

Latest issue(07-03-2016) of dsitrowatch weekly has a review of recently released Korora 23 as feature story. Korora is well known for it's powerful Fedora base combined with several useful software packages and well tweaked desktop environments.

The reviewer remarks that Korora is a good choice for beginners who are looking for a redhat style GNU/Linux distribution. The reviewer also praises Korora concept and look and feel. But he also express his dislike with certain customization done with certain components in user interface.

Korora 23 is Fedora 23 plus some customizations and extra software installed by default. There are five different editions of Korora, each with a different desktop environment. There are ISOs for Cinnamon, GNOME, KDE, MATE, and Xfce, each of which is about 2GB in size. Unlike Fedora, where GNOME is the default and the other desktop environments are classified as "spins" offering alternative desktop environments, Korora does not make any one desktop the official default.

Each of the Korora downloads can be burned to a DVD or copied to a flash drive. The media will boot to a live desktop environment the user can test out before installing it to their hard drive using the Anaconda installer. The install process should be extremely familiar to anyone who has used Fedora. During the install process, the user will be able to change language and keyboard options; set the location, date, and time; configure hard drive partitions, configure the network; set the root password; and create a single non-root account.
