Discover. The Korora Landscape

Korora currently comes with the choice of five desktops, all available in 64 and 32 bit versions:

Each desktop version is similarly focused, being aimed at making Linux easier to use and pre-configuring the system for end users. As such, they include:

  • Tweaked desktops with custom extensions and configuration
  • Third party repositories such as Adobe Flash, Dropbox, Google Chrome, RPMFusion1, VirtualBox and more
  • Firefox as the default web browser
  • Firefox extensions included (Adblock Plus, DownThemAll, Flashblock, Xclear)
  • Microblogging client
  • Full multimedia support, including Adobe Flash
  • Pharlap device manager to handle drivers such as NVIDIA and wireless
  • Video editor
  • VLC as the default media player
  • SELinux enabled
  • and more..

The Korora system includes applications for many common desktop computing tasks. As such it is much larger than other distributions and requires a DVD disk to boot from, however we highly recommend using a USB drive as they are much faster.

1 RPMFusion provides software that the Fedora Project doesn't want to ship, such as support for MP3s and proprietary video drivers.
