    Hats off - here's my long, thorough review of Fusion Linux 14 Thorium, a Fedora-based distribution designed to work out of the box, covering look and feel with Mint menu and Windows 7 like pinned applications, Wireless, Bluetooth, Samba, Compiz effects, applications choice, multimedia support - Flash, MP3, QuickTime, Microsoft Media Server (MMS), installation in a dual-boot setup, post-install script, easy printing, stability, suspend & resume, system resources, as well as problems like Gnome crashes, SELinux annoyances, badly configured programs, comparison to other RedHat-based distributions, and more. Enjoy.

    Wow a really nice Fedora fork? This is an alternative universe right? Geez, mebbe someday Opensuse will make it easy to install new ppas and then I'll know we are in BizzaroLand(tm).

    Mrkvonixc is the world champ of multiple operating systems. You can't boot too many distros, lol.

    There's probably plenty of room to run them all on modern computers.

    Mrkvonic just posted a review of Fusion 14 Thorium... he reports a few crashes and it may have more software than most newbies would ever use but I suppose its easier to remove software you don't need than to find software you must have.

    Its a new Fedora Remix distro so flaws are to be expected but bottom line and my view is somewhat from his verdict would be it shows a lot of promise as a remix and things can only get better in the future... if the developers work twice as hard to make the next version twice as better.

    The review can be found here:

    He'll be reviewing Fuduntu next week.

    Cheers!

    Hvala Igor. Nice review as usual.
    Strange mixed bag of distros though...
    User friendly mint menu and SELinux, tons of apps (I mean 'Blender'...really?), gnome crashes on live and install usage but also easy printing.
    Seems like hardcore + user-friendly + everything + kitchen sink.

    Anyway, thanks for the review, saves me a download and multiple hours.
