Kororaa Linux 15 released

September 25, 2011

Several weeks ago, I put Kororaa 14 “Nemo” through its paces and liked it a lot. Chris Smart and his colleages at Kororaa do a great job in producing a distro based on Fedora, and Smart announced last week the release of Kororaa Linux 15 “Squirt.”

Based on the Fedora 15 release, Squirt features both KDE SC 4.6 and GNOME 3 desktop environments (as well as including a desktop switcher for GNOME 3, so that users can switch between the new Shell interface and the 2.x style Fallback mode), and it is available for download for both 32-bit and 64-bit architectures.

Squirt highlights include:

  • Customized GNOME 3 desktop environment
  • Customized KDE SC 4.6 desktop environment
  • Default browser: Mozilla Firefox 6
  • Out-of-the-box multimedia support
  • VLC as default video player
  • Extra repositories for installing Adobe Flash Player, Google Chrome, RPMFusion and VirtualBox
  • Gwibber and Choqok microblogging clients
  • Adobe Flash Player installer
  • Jockey Device Driver Manager to easily install Nvidia and ATI video drivers
  • Shell and Fallback desktops switcher for GNOME 3
  • OpenShot and Kdenlive video editors
  • SELinux enabled
  • Linphone VoIP client (for the KDE edition)
  • Want to take a look? Download it here.
