    Oppan Red Hat style. I mean Fedora. So there it is, a long, mostly unfavorable review of Fedora 21 KDE 64-bit edition, tested in a quad-boot setup on a laptop with Intel graphics and SSD, covering live session, install and post-install use, including look & feel, network connectivity - Wireless (2.4GHz and 5GHz), Samba sharing, partitioning and problms with BTRFS, bootloader issues, easyLife configuration and bogus error messages, codecs re-installation, multimedia playback - Flash and MP3, applications - defaults and extras, desktop effects & screenshots, resource usage, printing, stability, suspend & resume, other bugs and problems, and more. Have fun. And don't drink too much.

    I tried this out but I couldn't download Chromium and while I could download Chrome I couldn't get it to install. Given what I assume is a very high level of built in security if I had could have installed either I may have kept it.

    Bitter and harsh environment, below-par outcome. Like spanish inquisition entree-level for linux newbs.
    The xfce-spin runs much better, thank Code.

    I went back, hate feeling defeated, and installed Chrome. Now to get the right codecs for videos.
