2015.04.27 — Linux thinking (e-mail to LUGOR last night)
This is ane-mail that I sent to the Linux User Group of Rochester (LUGOR) re thoughts I have had re installing my next Fedora:
I am eagerly awaiting Fedora 22 when it comes out…
In poking around tonight, I ran across a bookmark that
I first recorded a month or so ago about the Korora remix
of Fedora 21. From what I can tell reading distro watch
and other sites, Korora fits the Fedora open source ecosystem
the way that the long dormant Omega 14 was when I first started
getting back to Linux a decade ago. Omega was an excellent
attempt to remix Fedora in a way similar to how Ubuntu and
Mint now provide remixes of Debian.
Rob Raiman told me about the Omega 14 Fedora remix at a Lugor
meeting or follow on Quimbies dinner circa the times (2004-2006)
I first started going to Lugor meetings after moving back to ROC.
Omega has since gone dormant. From what I can tell,
Korora is a current remix that purports to do for Fedora
what Ubuntu and Mint do for Debian and each other.
I plan on attending the next Lugor dinner May 21. By then
I will have tried Korora 21 in my secondary Intel x86-64
real time weather radar box that currently runs Mint 17.
The release version of Korora 22 will probably
become available about a month or so after Fedora 22’s
That said, I will be able to talk about my experiences with
Korora 21 in conversation at with Lugor colleagues at our
May 21 stamtisch…

I for one would be very interested in hearing about Korora. I missed Omega when it went dormant.
