Filed under
Linux

I really liked Fedora though it feels a bit geekier than Ubuntu. Ubuntu is absolutely more user-friendly and you don't need to be a Linux expert to use it. But, Kororaa changed my view - it is definitely user friendly and offers a more complete out-of-the-box distro than Fedora with the usual smoothness that characterizes Fedora.

From Distrowatch, I came to know of the latest release and downloaded Kororaa 17 from its site. KDE is my preferred option and the ISO was 1.6 GB - quite big indeed for Linux!
