Description: "The Korora project is pleased to announce the stable release of version 20 (code name 'Peach') which is now available for download. This release brings with it a significant amount of work by the team and community to bring not two but five desktops that have been shaped for a genuine Korora experience. The additions of Cinnamon, MATE and Xfce represent the growth of our community and their contributions. A quick summary of the features: GNOME 3.10 represents another iteration to the new desktop which is also targeting native Wayland support; KDE Plasma Workspaces 4.11 brings a host of bug fixes, speed ups and improvements...."
Keywords: Fedora-based Peach

Pros:
Cons:



Korora is an installation disk for Fedora which provides you with the codecs and flash-plugin on the installation disk. This is particularly useful for beginners, since Fedora goes out of its way not to tell you where to find them. After the installation, you have Fedora, so I wont repeat my review of that. Korara also offers a choice of desktops Cinnamon, GNOME, KDE, MATE and Xfce but, as I said in my Fedora review, its a distro best experienced with Gnome or KDE.

Pros: Fedora made easy.
Cons: Did not like the new (supposedly) improved installer


Korora is a great distro.
They have implemented their Cinnamon desktop so that runs well with no glitches. (That is an improvement on their last attempt.)
I have Korora installed on a machine which literally will not run anything else - including Knoppix or Linux Mint.
Everything worked for me out of the box - wireless, printer, videos, etc.
Package management with yum is excellent.
