Kororaa Linux - The best Fedora remix available

Filed under
Linux

Two things I have to say to you! One, I've received more emails asking me to test Kororaa than any other distribution. The second one is, I'm angry with the Kororaa development team. They released two versions just a couple of weeks apart, naughty men. As I was collecting screenshots for this review, on top of Kororaa 15.1 Squirt, I learned that a new edition was made available, numbered sweet 16. A dilemma, then. What to do, what to do? Delete and start over? No, I proceeded with the original work.

All right, theatric tantrums aside, this is going to be a review of Kororaa 15.1 Squirt, the one before the last edition. I hope you will be able to project onto the latest version, and if not, several dozen more emails might convince me to write another review. Anyhow, Kororaa is a Fedora remix, spin, fork, spoon, whatever you want to call it. So it embraces the geeky and tries to make it fun. Been there, done that, not always works. What about now?

Orange Pi SBCs offer a choice of 32- or 64-bit SoCs for under $20

The open spec “Orange Pi Zero Plus 2” SBC provides WiFi, BT, HDMI, MIPI-CSI, and a choice of quad-core Allwinner H3 (Cortex-A7) or H5 (-A53) SoCs. Shortly after launching an Orange Pi Zero Plus 2 with a 32-bit, Cortex-A7 Allwinner H3, Shenzhen Xunlong’s open source Orange Pi project shipped an Orange Pi Zero Plus 2 H5 model. The Linux- and Android-ready hacker board is identical except for the change to a similarly quad-core, but 64-bit, Cortex-A53 Allwinner H5 SoC. The open spec boards are shipping now on AliExpress, for $18.90 and $19.90, respectively, but have yet to appear on the Orange Pi website. Read more

Being a Linux user isn't weird anymore

A few days ago, I was down at the Starbucks in my local bookstore—sipping on a hot chocolate, using the free (but rather pokey) Wi-Fi, and getting some work done. This is pretty typical for me. Since I work from home, it’s nice to get out of the house and shake things up a little bit. Working for a few hours at a coffee shop tends to be just about right. I’m not the only person in the world who uses coffee shops as short term offices—it’s become so normal, it’s almost a cliché. Read more
