So you are talking to others on the forum how good Kororaa is, but you don't use it yourself? A false prophet, I see.

I have two dual booted machines with Linux and Windows 7. The laptop is pure backup so I leave this alone (Zorin). The other machine sees a constant stream of visitors who all want to see a version of Linux that is not on it at the time. Rather than take my word for anything (who would? ), most insist on seeing it in action, including the install process. The version of Linux on my main machine therefore changes frequently and whatever ends up there I usually leave in place until the next request.

Korora finally drops the second "a" and starts a new project.

I really wanted to try Korora 19 but it won't even launch a live session on my NVIDIA box and on the ATi machine the notorious Anaconda installer crashes repeatedly. Another one for the bin.

I've been running the xfce version of Korora 21 the past few days and have been very impressed with it. I was running Manjaro xfce prior to this and and although I haven't done any scientific tests ...Korora seems to be lighter and more responsive. It's certainly been very stable thus far as well.
Being the first time I installed Korora and having never installed Fedora either, I found the installer 'interesting' though

Thank you for sharing your experience. My best xfce to date is definitely Chalet OS which is the reason it is still installed. I am however waiting for the first distro to ship with Plasma 5 which promises to be a real step up. I appreciate this is already available in some of the repos but I prefer to wait for a distro that has been coded for it from scratch.
