In search of good looking linux distributions me I have met with Korora, This Fedora-based distribution has been talked about on previous occasions here on the blog. Personally, I did not know her so when I read about her I decided to give it a try.
Initially Korora was born based on Gentoo, which stopped having support because the creator decided to abandon the project. But A few years ago the project was resumed, but this time it was based on Fedora and since then Korora Linux has been updating with each new release of Fedora.
Korora tol be based on Fedora It is undoubtedly a fairly robust and stable distribution, so is distributed with official Fedora packages and repositories.
Korora's creator catalogs it like a Fedora Remix, but its approach is to provide a stable and easy-to-use system, since its approach is to attract new users and that they do not have the greatest complication to use.
Table of Contents
Today the distribution is in its version 26 and it has the following desktop environments, from which we can choose which one we have by default after having installed it.
Korora 26 includes the version of Cinnamon 3.4 with which among the main characteristics is that each complement of this is executed separately and no longer together.
With GNOME 3.24 it brings a host of new features to the Gnome desktop, including the new Night Light setting that reduces eyestrain.
KDE Plasma 5.10
With this release of KDE, Korora gains a new default desktop view and Task Manager enhancements among a long list of enhancements.
Korora includes this version as it already has a complete migration to GTK3
Finally, the last of the desktop environments that Korora offers us which has been improved a lot and the design is even more clean and elegant, this in order to improve the user experience in several ways.
Within what Korora 26 offers us, as in any of its other versions includes several repositories with which we will have access to a wide variety of applications
- Fedora Updates
- RPMFusion Free
- RPMFusion not free
- Free RPMFusion updates
- Non-free RPMFusion updates
64 bit only
Also one of the great changes en this new version is that only Korora images have been created for 64-bit systems, since the developers have decided no longer to create a 32-bit system.
The argument to stop supporting 32-bit architecture is because they argue that it is no longer in such demand, so they consider that it makes sense to invest time in it.
Korora 26 adds the backrests
From a developer's point of view, it is important to always keep data protected, so has decided to include backup information in all its flavors.
"We are always improving the range of applications included in Korora and since version 26 all desktop environments now include a backup solution, we know how important your data is to you, so we wanted to make it easier for you to protect it."
For Cinnamon, Gnome, XFCE and Mate we will find Déjà Dup while for KDE, it will have Back in Time. With them we will have the option of making backups of our information.
