Review: Korora 18 "Flo" KDE

Filed under
Linux

Korora is a distribution that essentially offers a bunch of niceties on top of Fedora with GNOME or KDE. This time I tried just the KDE version. I tried this as a live USB system made with UnetBootin, as making it with MultiSystem gave problems on several occasions.

After the boot menu came a nice spinner on a black background for the boot splash. After that came the KDE splash which has been modified for Korora such that the 5 icons appearing in order appear not in a box in the center of the screen but instead integrated near the bottom of the screen with the Korora background. After that came the desktop.

The desktop is fairly standard for KDE. The moderately dark blue Korora-branded background is quite elegant.

  • Developer Implements Netflix in SteamOS
    A developer has put together some tools (still under construction) that would allow users to use SteamOS to play Netflix. It's in its early stages, but the developer has made something that Valve hasn't even thought about until now.

Elsewhere, Jack Germain said, "Simplicity Linux is easy to use and runs fast" and Swapnil Bhartiya shared his secret to converting users to Linux. Read more
