    More awesome pimpage: A guide explaining how to transform stock Fedora 24 into a rich desktop system, with additional repositories, multimedia codecs, extra software, Skype setup and integration with the Gnome desktop, Skype microphone audio, multimedia player integration, customization, browser tweaks, and more. Have fun!

    Mrk,

    I'd tell newbie users to skip Fedora and install Korora Project and save themselves a lot of the work to make it usable.

    Korora Project already already has all of the stuff Fedora doesn't and it comes out of the box, ready to use.

    That's because its a Fedora Remix.

    There's also Chapeau - another Fedora-based remix that brings in all the goodies Mrk recommends be installed in Fedora.

    Chapeau 24 beta is now available.
    Seems a nice distro but only available with the gnome 3 DE.

    Just install Fedy and you get the RPMs and all the codecs.
