    Hello All

    https://kororaproject.org/

    I needed a quick install with all the codecs ready to go. Installed on a sandybridge i5 based laptop with Intel graphics, 3GB RAM, spinning rust hard drive and an Atheros wifi card for which there is a fully free driver. 20mins install, 200Mb of updates, everything seems to work OK. Snappy except for Firefox taking some seconds to load.

    I've installed the Gnome variant: nice colourful theme, heavyish on resources. 2GB live DVD has a reasonable range of software including Audacity and VLC.

    Are codecs the biggest difference between Fedora and Korora?

    Looks that way. There is a small korora repository configured, then the RPMFusion repositories (free, non-free) that people use to source the codecs on Fedora and then the Fedora base repos. The Korora repository provides what I think is rather nice branding (Gnome theme, icons, wallpapers), configurations &c.

    I have Korora 23 beta installed on a laptop so I'll have a look at the config over the weekend and post more. They have a github account with source code at

    I've been pointed Chapeau, another batteries included Fedora remix. Chapeau is Gnome oriented, Korora supports a number of desktop environments.
