Korora, a Fedora Remix distribution with tweaks and extras to make the system “just work” out of the box, which aims to provide a complete and easy-to-use system for general computing, is now at version 18 Beta.

Korora 18 comes in several flavors for both the KDE and the GNOME desktops. It comes with a few default applications such as Adobe Flash, Google Chrome, Google Earth, RPMFusion, and VirtualBox.

Highlights of Korora 18 Beta:

• Experimental support for Valve’s Steam client has been added;
• unburden-home-dir, which moves cache files (like in Firefox profiles) onto RAMFS at login, has been added;
• undistract-me, which pops up a GUI notification when a terminal command has completed, has been added;

The developers have also assured users that it's possible to update from Kororaa 17 to Korora 18, thanks to Fedora’s FedUp tool.

Download Korora 18 Beta right now from Softpedia. Remember that this is a beta version and it should NOT be installed on production machines. It is intended for testing purposes only.
