Kororaa Linux 16 Beta

Chris Smart has announced the availability of the first beta release of Kororaa Linux 16, a Fedora-based distribution with GNOME or KDE desktops and many usability enhancements: "The first beta of Kororaa 16 (code name 'Chum') has been released and is available for download, in 32-bit and 64-bit editions for KDE and GNOME. This new release includes major updates of most packages including the Linux kernel, office and desktops (KDE 4.7 and GNOME 3.2). The GNOME 3 desktop has a custom theme available, as well as several extensions to provide an enhanced user experience (and help ease the transition from GNOME 2.x). It also comes with the GNOME Tweak Tool to allow further customisation. The KDE desktop has a custom layout with specific default applications, such as Firefox for the web and VLC for media."
