Essentially, Kororaa has been re-born as a Fedora Remix, inspired by Rahul Sundaram’s Omega GNOME based Remix. I switched to Fedora about a year and a half ago, and I love it. Kororaa has re-emerged out of a desire to see others using Fedora, and so aims to provide a system which sets up a lot of the magic for you, out of the box. This is something I want my family (and all my friends) to be able to install and use. There are lots of things still to do, but I hope you’ll try it out and let me know what you think!
Kororaa aims to provide all general computing uses out of the box (well, as much as possible anyway). It aims to include the software packages that most users will want (this means Firefox for KDE, GIMP over Krita, VLC over DragonPlayer, and OpenOffice.org over
KOffice Calligra, etc). Adobe’s Flash plugin and NVIDIA’s graphics drivers are each installable with a double click.
Here’s a look at the desktop, running from the Live DVD.
Update (via Distrowatch):
After a period of hiatus, Kororaa Linux, famous for being one of the first live distributions with out-of-the-box support for the Xgl technology and 3D window manipulation, has been reborn as a Fedora-based live DVD for Linux beginners.
Chris Smart announced the new release on the project's home page: "I know that you'll be looking for something Linux related to do over your Christmas holidays and New Year, so I've just released the first installable live DVD x86_64 beta for testing. The final release will be Kororaa 14 (derived from Fedora 14), code-named 'Nemo'. As with the original Kororaa, it's based on KDE. Essentially, Kororaa has been reborn as a Fedora remix, inspired by Rahul Sundaram's Omega GNOME remix. It aims to provide all general computing uses out of the box and it aims to include software packages that most users will want."
Interested beta testers can download the live DVD image (for 64-bit computer systems only) from SourceForge: Kororaa-14-Beta-x86_64-Live-KDE.iso (1,537MB).
