Korora (operating system)

Kororaa was started by Christopher Smart as a method to quickly reproduce a Gentoo Linux installation on multiple desktop machines Chris also intended that Kororaa be used to quickly demonstrate the power of Gentoo Linux to users critical of 'compile times' On November 7, 2007, Chris announced that he was discontinuing his work on the project, and that there would be no new versions of Kororaa

The introduction of the Kororaa XGL Live CD was intended to demonstrate the capabilities of Novell’s Xgl and Compiz

On December 23, 2010, Chris Smart has announced rebirth of Kororaa as Fedora Remix3

On 000000002013-05-02-0000May 2, 2013, Korora 18 was released,4 featuring a revised name spelled with only one A and a new logo5

In March 2006, a Kororaa based Live CD was released, preconfigured with Xgl capabilities The live CD supports NVIDIA, ATI and Intel graphics cards, and the latest version 03 comes with both K Desktop Environment 3 and GNOME

Development hiatus and restartedit

On November 7, 2007, Smart announced that development on Kororaa would be ended, and no further versions would be released;6 reasons given were that

  • Sabayon Linux already serves a purpose as a binary Gentoo distribution
  • Gentoo already comes with a GUI installer
  • Compiz is already installed on most desktop distributions by default
  • Kororaa couldn't compete with other distributions which include non-free drivers by default
  • the weight of the project was too much for a single developer

On December 23, 2010, Smart announced the restart of Kororaa with a release of the Fedora-based version of the distro: “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 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”
