Kororaa Linux - The best Fedora remix available

Filed under
Linux

Two things I have to say to you! One, I've received more emails asking me to test Kororaa than any other distribution. The second one is, I'm angry with the Kororaa development team. They released two versions just a couple of weeks apart, naughty men. As I was collecting screenshots for this review, on top of Kororaa 15.1 Squirt, I learned that a new edition was made available, numbered sweet 16. A dilemma, then. What to do, what to do? Delete and start over? No, I proceeded with the original work.

All right, theatric tantrums aside, this is going to be a review of Kororaa 15.1 Squirt, the one before the last edition. I hope you will be able to project onto the latest version, and if not, several dozen more emails might convince me to write another review. Anyhow, Kororaa is a Fedora remix, spin, fork, spoon, whatever you want to call it. So it embraces the geeky and tries to make it fun. Been there, done that, not always works. What about now?

Rest here

Unix and Personal Computers: Reinterpreting the Origins of Linux

So, to sum up: What Linus Torvalds, along with plenty of other hackers in the 1980s and early 1990s, wanted was a Unix-like operating system that was free to use on the affordable personal computers they owned. Access to source code was not the issue, because that was already available—through platforms such as Minix or, if they really had cash to shell out, by obtaining a source license for AT&T Unix. Therefore, the notion that early Linux programmers were motivated primarily by the ideology that software source code should be open because that is a better way to write it, or because it is simply the right thing to do, is false.
