Korora Project

Last Update: 2017-11-27 23:39 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: 70 (160), 6 months: 67 (170), 3 months: 88 (139), 4 weeks: 86 (147), 1 week: 86 (131)

  • 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.

I installed Korora 26 on a Dell Latitude E6420 from 2012 with a Core i5 processor, 4 GB of RAM and a 500Gb HDD.
I was not expecting lightning fast speed, and I did not get it. Korora probably needs a bit more RAM and an SSD drive to run really well.
What I did enjoy is the great KDE setup. After installing 700-odd updates it worked pretty well.
I set up the Desktop wallpapers to run a slideshow, which worked well and looked good, I ran a few programmes, all of which went pretty well too.
On the whole it is a really nice distro, if you have modern hardware. The default installed programmes are pretty good choices also.
If you are new to Linux this would be a good place to start.

I've been running Linux Mint 18 and Solus 3 on my laptop for a year now without any issues. I installed Solus 3 gnome on my desktop PC that is a older PC which came with windows 7 on it. Solus has ran good, no issues at all but because the pc is older and its processor isn't super fast I have a 5 or 6 second lag when I click on either Firefox or Google Chrome....I downloaded Korora 26 and put the ISO on a dvd and noticed right away on the same old pc I didn't have a lag when getting on Firefox.... I decided to install Korora 26 alongside Solus 3 gnome and after adding Google Chrome and doing all the updates to Korora it performed great. Setup was easy, downloaded Chrome from the Google website using the version for Fedora and nothing could have went any more smoothly....Everything seems to work, everything loads fast, I don't seem to have any lag even on my old pc so CUDO'S TO THE Korora team....Job well done.

Arguably the best Fedora based distro for the less technically minded user out there, Korora is bundled with all the codecs you need, negating the requirement to install an equivalent tool such as easyLife etc.

It works fast and smoothly but the one downside is that it seems to struggle wtih Chrome browser and a couple of other apps, due to what appears to be memory issues and when that gets bad it can feel a tad clunky but I suspect Chrome would do that to many other distros too.
