Description: "It is my pleasure to announce the release of Kororaa 17 (codename 'Bubbles') which is now available for download. Derived from Fedora 17, this release comes with the usual Kororaa extras out of the box, such as: tweaked KDE and GNOME base systems; experimental support for Cinnamon desktop in GNOME; third party repositories (Adobe, Chrome, RPMFusion, VirtualBox); Firefox as the default web browser (with integration theme for KDE); instant messaging client (Kopete for KDE, Empathy for GNOME); micro-blogging client (Choqok for KDE, Gwibber for GNOME); full multimedia support; Adobe Flash plugin installable via package manager...."

Pros: Good security, adds many features to Fedora
Cons: but can't get rid of Fedora's bugs

Kororaa is a respin of Fedora, giving you the media codecs and setting up the third-party repositories. For version 17, I used the 32-bit Gnome disk.

The result is, of course, only as good as Fedora. The software is generally sound, although running from the CLI gave rather more warnings than I like to see. Like several others, I have problems with Fedoraís media players: VLC, Gnome-mplayer, and Totem all failed; only Gxine worked. In one respect Kororaa is more trouble than Fedora: the Gnash plug-in is not installed in Firefox, so one has to get Flash from Adobe.

The good things about Fedora, and hence Kororaa, are the excellent configuration tools and the high level of security offered by default. Itís still far ahead of any Debian derivative in these respects.
