Review: Korora 18 "Flo" KDE

Filed under
Linux

Korora is a distribution that essentially offers a bunch of niceties on top of Fedora with GNOME or KDE. This time I tried just the KDE version. I tried this as a live USB system made with UnetBootin, as making it with MultiSystem gave problems on several occasions.

After the boot menu came a nice spinner on a black background for the boot splash. After that came the KDE splash which has been modified for Korora such that the 5 icons appearing in order appear not in a box in the center of the screen but instead integrated near the bottom of the screen with the Korora background. After that came the desktop.

The desktop is fairly standard for KDE. The moderately dark blue Korora-branded background is quite elegant.
