DistroWatch.com: Korora Project

Korora Project

Last Update: 2016-12-07 02:33 UTC


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

Popularity (hits per day): 12 months: 52 (218), 6 months: 57 (221), 3 months: 79 (168), 4 weeks: 76 (172), 1 week: 64 (204)

Average visitor rating: 9.5/10 from 6 review(s).

Table Notes and Explanations

(Please refer to the table below.)
  • Select view:
  • To compare the software in this project to the software available in other distributions, please see our Compare Packages page.
  • Notes: In case where multiple versions of a package are shipped with a distribution, only the default version appears in the table. For indication about the GNOME version, please check the "nautilus" and "gnome-shell" packages. The Apache web server is listed as "httpd" and the Linux kernel is listed as "linux". The KDE desktop is represented by the "kdelibs" and "plasma-desktop" packages and the Xfce desktop by the "xfdesktop" package.
  • Colour scheme: green text = latest stable version, red text = development or beta version. The function determining beta versions is not 100% reliable due to a wide variety of versioning schemes.

Nice and great working distro. Noticed some KDE-related bugs, but overall experience is great.

Korora 25, 86_64, xfce. Using rufus-2.7.855 and a 16Gig usb stick.

pros:
very secure, stable, fast, easy to install and use. no bugs. i tried 51 distros.., i love Xubuntu but Korora is the best. not ready to change for another distro because my laptop is glad..and me too :-)

cons:
Nothing for the moment.

It solve all Fedora's shortcomings. Very neat and nice user interface.

The only drawback: having Python 3.5 replaced back by Python 2.7.
