Article here, but look at the comments, for 'Korora' is mentioned there.  Supposedly it sports five desktops, and has a full library of codecs, so then like Mint, it specializes in media.

 

Have any of you tried it?  Korora's own link is here.  The screenshot looks a lot like Ubuntu with Unity.

 

I'm concerned about Apper and some change in using systemd everyone keeps talking about but I don't understand.  Apparently Fedora's departing from using systemd for stability reasons?  What are the pros and cons, in your opinion?

 

If it matters, I'm most fond of KDE, though I use MATE too (click on the Discover dropdown in the prior link, to see the GUI options).

 

Thank you guys for whatever opining, you wish to provide!  :bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown:

Never heard of it.

 


Support for as much hardware as possible

End user desired applications as defaults (e.g. Firefox over Konqueror)

- REF:https://kororaproject.org/about (Goals section)

I like their list of goals.

 

We operate around an approximate six-month, time-based release cycle
- REF:https://kororaproject.org/about/roadmap

I personally wouldn't be likely to use it much just because of how often releases come out. I tend to go with long term support releases of distros (if available) these days. For example, on Ubuntu I'm still using 14.04 despite 15.10 being out.

 

Supposedly it sports five desktops,

Keeping everyone happy. :)

 

If you click on their HTTP download link, it redirects to sourceforge, where you can browse the downloads. Based on the ISO file-names, it appears that not all 5 desktop-environments are pre-installed in a single ISO, you choose the ISO that has the desktop-environment you want. The XFCE and MATE versions being the smallest it appears.

Thank you, hollowface!  Maybe they will come to do LTRs later on.

Korora was born out of a desire to make Linux easier for new users, while still being useful for experts.

I doubt they'll do LTS releases, because they seem to be targeting home users, and LTS releases tend to be something offered by distros that see lots of business, enterprise, or server use, because people in those senarios can't upgrade all the time. If tKorora wanted to do LTS releases they'd probably be using CentOS as a base rather than Fedora.
