Korora was born out of a desire to make Linux easier for new users, while still being useful for experts. 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. Korora is a Fedora Remix, meaning it ships packages from the default Fedora repositories but also a number of other packages. Korora also pre-configures a number of third party repositories, making it easier to install the additional software that most people use. These include: Adobe Flash; Google Chrome, Google Earth and Google Talkplugin; RPMFusion; VirtualBox. Korora includes a tool called Pharlap for simple installation of third party drivers such as those for NVIDIA graphics cards and certain wireless devices. Korora hopes to provide a complete, easy to use system for general computing which is assisted by the following: Support for as much hardware as possible; End user desired applications as defaults (e.g. Firefox over Konqueror); Ability to play all media out of the box using free software, wherever possible; Target specific applications for tasks with as little bloat as possible…
