Korora Linux: More Than Just Another Fedora Clone

Filed under
Linux

Korora Linux has the potential to grow in popularity among users looking for a better, more user-friendly Linux distro that reaches beyond Fedora's enterprise appeal.

Korora 19, released on July 2, is an interesting Linux OS based on Fedora, the community version of parent company Red Hat's Enterprise Linux. Korora is packed with lots of additional packages, however, besides those provided by the Fedora community.

For various design and community reasons, Fedora leaves out some popular user packages. Korora fills in those gaps by providing everything a user would want and more. That explains why Fedora's typical 3 GB installation footprint is less than half the size of Korora's 7 GB.

The power-sipping DualLite enables the fanless computer to run at a modest 6.26W active and 1.42W standby, according to Shuttle’s AnTuTu benchmarks. Read more
