Fedora 16 KDE review

Filed under
Linux

Fedora 16 is the latest stable edition of Fedora, a Linux distribution whose development is sponsored by Red Hat, Inc. The main edition uses the GNOME 3 desktop environment, but there are editions, called Spins, that use other desktop environments.

Fedora 16 is the first version of Fedora where the installer creates GPT partitions by default – in standalone installations. So if you are going to install Fedora 16 KDE or any version of Fedora 16, GPT is a new feature that you will encounter during installation. GPT, or GUID Partition Table, makes it possible to create more than four primary partitions, and partitions that are more than 2 TB in size. If you are interested in this subject, you might want to read Fedora 16 GPT disk partitioning guide.

Another new feature is the option to disable LVM in any of the automated partitioning steps. LVM, the Linux Logical Manager, is still the default, but you may disable it and let the system create non-LVM partitions. Aside from LVM and GPT, I do not see any other new feature in the version of Anaconda in Fedora 16. Anaconda is the Fedora system installation program. A slightly modified version is used by Sabayon Linux.
