"Fedora produced two released this year, same as OpenSuSE and Ubuntu
+
"German free web magazine "Freies Magazin" has a whole round up on Fedora 16."
And both of them were lovely from my point of view. Fedora 15 was the
+
first distribution to feature GNOME3 as default desktop environment. And
+
it was already awesome, even though not without a glitch. Fedora 16
+
became even better.  What is about Fedora KDE? As I have written, Fedora
+
15 KDE was very good, and Fedora 16 KDE was even better."

"The security features in Fedora make it one of my favorite Linux
+
distributions. And that is partly why it is in my list of the top 6 KDE
+
distributions of 2011, even though it takes some tweaking to get it to
+
the it just works state. I will take the security advantages of an
+
operating system over any user-friendliness weaknesses, provided those
+
user-friendliness weaknesses are not show stoppers."

"When you design something or build something with security in mind, you

are always cognizant of the fact that you can have ten measures and if

everything works fine, that's great. But on the other side, the other
+
person needs to succeed just once! Whatever ten things you have that is
+
successful, is done away with this one failure. Well that is the story
+
in the proprietary perspective. In the open source perspective,
+
everything that we build is completely transparent. Everybody knows what
+
we are building."

"To get a better overview of Kororaa Linux, the ideas behind it, what it
+
includes and why, check their web page. My take on it is this - if you
+
have looked at Fedora before, and you didn't want to use it because of
+
the difficulty and tedium of getting a lot of common non-FOSS packages
+
installed, then you should take a look at Kororaa. Of course, if you are
+
a FOSS-purist, you are likely to think that Kororaa is an abomination."
