Korora21 – A tamed Wild Horse
Korora is some thing a well trained powerful horse with all setup for the ranger as in Fedora, the user has to take the extra effort / time.
I was a satisfied K20 user, which is the first time I got my hand laid over Korora. I had some small issues with PulseAudio permission issues wit k20 but apart from that the experience was awesome.
so, K21 does keep that awesome impression. I chose XFCE spin, XFCE is getting better and mature, it is the new Gnone Classic. The installation went pretty smooth and tidy. The new system logged me in very fast, faster than my other two distros (Frugalware and NetRunner 15).
Some of the points that make this Distro cooler
1. System responsiveness is strong and stable. Not bloating, lagging
2. Memory consumption is nominal
3. Excellent Theme and Icons (GreyBird)
4. I can install and Fedy for tweaking and customization
5. Fedora repositories with extra, like an Ocean, one can install any thing they need
SMPLAYER was not in the default applications. But it took just a minute to install with yum. Same as Skype, I installed with Fedy.
Yumex is the GUI for package management, which is still Raw and Basic compared to the Debian / Arch equivalents. Hope Fedora will bring some thing cooler and easier.
So, at the end of the day, Korora 21 is just awesome distro for your general purpose computing. You can be a noon, inter or advanced. This distro surely deserves higher ranking in Distrowatch 🙂
