"Fedora produced two released this year, same as OpenSuSE and Ubuntu
"German free web magazine "Freies Magazin" has a whole round up on Fedora 16."
And both of them were lovely from my point of view. Fedora 15 was the
first distribution to feature GNOME3 as default desktop environment. And
it was already awesome, even though not without a glitch. Fedora 16
became even better.  What is about Fedora KDE? As I have written, Fedora
15 KDE was very good, and Fedora 16 KDE was even better."

=== 4 security features in Fedora 16 ===
[[User:Sundaram|Rahul Sundaram]] posted<ref></ref>:
"The security features in Fedora make it one of my favorite Linux
distributions. And that is partly why it is in my list of the top 6 KDE
distributions of 2011, even though it takes some tweaking to get it to
the it just works state. I will take the security advantages of an
operating system over any user-friendliness weaknesses, provided those
user-friendliness weaknesses are not show stoppers."

[[User:Sundaram|Rahul Sundaram]] posted<ref></ref>:
"When you design something or build something with security in mind, you
are always cognizant of the fact that you can have ten measures and if
everything works fine, that's great. But on the other side, the other
person needs to succeed just once! Whatever ten things you have that is
successful, is done away with this one failure. Well that is the story
in the proprietary perspective. In the open source perspective,
everything that we build is completely transparent. Everybody knows what
we are building."

=== Kororaa Linux 16 - A Fedora++ Distribution ===
[[User:Sundaram|Rahul Sundaram]] posted<ref></ref>:
"To get a better overview of Kororaa Linux, the ideas behind it, what it
includes and why, check their web page. My take on it is this - if you
have looked at Fedora before, and you didn't want to use it because of
the difficulty and tedium of getting a lot of common non-FOSS packages
installed, then you should take a look at Kororaa. Of course, if you are
a FOSS-purist, you are likely to think that Kororaa is an abomination."
