Goodbyes and Hellos

Recently the Korora Project founder, Chris Smart, posted a comment on IRC about the current situation with Korora. Later the user who had produced the community editions of Korora responded with his future plans. The Korora Project is no longer active and so everyone should look for alternatives, we suggest either Fedora or another Fedora remix.

Chris said "hey all, I don't plan to create another release of Korora, I recommend anyone still running Korora should switch to stock Fedora or another distro I've created an Ansible script to apply korora settings on stock Fedora Workstation (GNOME) if anyone wants to try it, you can see my blog post here https://blog.christophersmart.com/2018/12/26/manage-and-tweak-fedora-with-ansible/"

JMiahMan commented "It's with great sadness, for me at least, to announce I am no longer going to be working on a community edition for Korora. It was my hope that with some interest and hope one of the two awesome developers Chris or Ian would return to this great project if not in deed, but maybe in word and help keep at least a community edition going. However, I have realized this is not the case, in fact it was quite the opposite Chris came back and told everyone to no longer use Korora. I'm assuming that meant community or any official version. Though it's a bit heart breaking, I can respect his decision and since this is his project I am forced to move along as well. However stock Fedora will most likely never be good enough for me. There's always new hardware, some wireless card I end up purchasing cheap on a whim or so new remote from a gaming console I want to work and these, to some oddities, never get on the Fedora radar. Sometimes it's licensing or sometimes it's something like Fedora not supporting out of kernel modules, or sometimes it's just not in the scope or direction Fedora wants to go, but never the less, I end up packaging something. If I am packaging something I might as well share and if I am going to share packages I might as well create some repos, kickstarts and an ISO.

So Chris might be done.. Ian might be done (I hope not with lens).. Korora might be done.. but I am not done...

So I put up a page,http://unitylinux.org, copied some of what I was working on to a new gitlab project http://gitlab.com/unity-linux and started all over again. For the last week I have been creating some basic XFCE ISOs. Really just to play with themes (branding) and to tweak the existing build system. We have a freenode IRC channel #unitylinux if you want to stop on by or a forum at http://discuss.unitylinux.com if you want to leave suggestions, comments, test or just be a part of the community. If I don't see you in our community I hope to see you around. Hopefully someday I'll see you all back here, but until then I hope you're blessed in whatever Linux community you chose to be a part of."
