Black Opal is built from the Ubuntu 12.04 distribution. The Dash Home is very easy to use. Just by typing a few letters into the Dash Home Search bar you will quickly locate installed applications with ease. The terminal is transparent so reading instructions and running nessasary commands works very will without having to close the brower or other applications that may be up and running. Runs solid and smooth with amazing graphical effects as windows open and close. Accessibility to the launcher that holds all of the icons for the applications and terminal is easily brought to the front of the desktop by hovering over the left side of the screen. Upon opening the Firefox web brower you are greeted with a "dashing splash" of color, and the browser opens. When closing the broswer and other applications as it closes it has a neat shrinking effect as it turns and travels across the screen and falls back into the launcher. This distribution has provided good performance, stability and lots of pleasing graphic effects, plenty of eye candy. I highly recommend this distribution to someone who is new to Linux and also to Artist's.

Fedora 17 is exceptionally stable and very cutting edge. This distribution did not come with Flash nor Adobe so it will have to be obtained and installed. It also did not come with VLC 2.0.4 and rpmfusion is needed for VLC to work properly. The current version of the kernel is 3.6.10-2. This operating system runs amazingly well on a laptop of this architecture (Intel dual core AMD64 bit system) and the graphics are as clear as crystal. The Fedora Documentation is comprehensive and reasonably understandable. Support is at
