Korora 17 , a great Fedora Fork


Kororaa was born out of a desire to make Linux easier for new users, while still being useful for experts. The main goal of Kororaa is to provide a complete, easy to use system for general computing.
Originally based on Gentoo Linux in 2005, Kororaa was re-born in 2010 as a Fedora Remix with tweaks and extras to make the system “just work” out of the box. Why Fedora? Lots of reasons!


Desktops
Kororaa comes in several installable versions which include both the KDE and GNOME desktops.
Gnome Desktop

KDE Desktop

Default applications
Kororaa sets the default applications to those that end users typically want. For example,Firefox is the default web browser in KDE (instead of Konqueror) and VLC is the default media player (instead of Dragon Player in KDE and Totem in GNOME). There is generally one popular program installed for each task, although alternatives (such as the Google Chrome web browser) are available via the package manager for a quick install.
Package repositories
Kororaa also pre-configures several third party repositories, making it easier to install additional software that everyone uses. These include:
  • Adobe Flash
  • Google Chrome and Talk plugin
  • RPMFusion
  • VirtualBox
Users can easily install Adobe’s Flash plugin via the package manager, thanks to the flash-plugin-helper RPM metapackage.
