    Another revolution, for the first time ever, Dedoimedo gives you Fedora and Nvidia. But I'm getting ahead of myself. In more detail, here's the usually long and thorough review of Fedora 19 Schroedinger's Cat 64-bit edition with the KDE desktop, including live session, dual-boot configuration alongside Kubuntu, post-install setup and use, covering Wireless, Samba sharing, look & feel, step-by-step installer & partitioning procedure, easyLife, Nvidia driver setup, package management & updates, applications, multimedia playback - Flash and MP3, desktop customization, system resources, system stability, suspend & resume, printing, various problems, and more.

    @Mrkvonic I find myself skipping to the bottom of your reviews about half the time.

    For me Linux Mint Cinnamon LTS is still king. But I keep on checking your reviews.

    Heard Ubuntu 14.04 LTS is coming with a 5 year end of life.

    Wonder if Mint will follow with 14.04 LTS?

    Is that a good thing or a bad thing, the skipping?

    No I do enjoy your reviews. Insightful, honest & funny. Just sometimes my patience wains or I'm tired. Keep up the good work.

    Another great review.

    BTW any chance of a link to the chinese villa image you have as the wallpaper in that review?

    Searched wallbase for a couple of hours but can't find it.

    Cheers.

    Am I the only one who reads thoroughly? And the only one who doesn't use a distro... there's a contradiction here.

    It's actually Kyoto, Japan.
    Try that and you will find it.

    Hello Mrk,

    Recently I installed F20 Beta TC4 KDE version. As with F19 KDE, the installation procedure is still clumsy. At the bottom of "Selected Disk" Window, the "Do not install bootloader" button on the left side has been replaced with "Set as bootloader". The "Remove" button on the right hand side is still in place. It is supposed to mean "Do Not install (GRUB2) Bootloader".

    1) If I choose the "Set (Grub2) as Bootloader" button, after reboot Grub2 takes over the control of the multiboot process!

    Which command should I use to maintain Grub1 control of my multiboot?
    I have openSUSE 12.2 in control with its Grub1 in the MBR.

    2) If I choose "Remove" button, i.e. install F20 WITHOUT a bootloader, after installation is done and reboot, I see the GRUB> prompt on the screen.

    At this point, is there any way to force installation of GRUB2 in the root partition of F20 in order to avoid messing up the Grub1-controlled multiboot system referred to in #1 above?

    Thanks for your help.
