Fedora KDE Live CD 20
Availability, boot options, supported platforms
The distribution is available for download as two Live DVD ISO images, one for each of the supported hardware platforms (64-bit and 32-bit), which allow users to test the operating system without installing anything on their computers.
There are only two options on the boot prompt. While the first one will start the live environment with default options, the second one give users access to more advanced options, such as the ability to run a memory diagnostic test, boot an operating system that is installed on the first disk, or start the live session in safe graphics mode (only if your graphics card is not recognized by the default entry).
Pure KDE desktop environment with top-notch apps
As mentioned, the graphical session of this Fedora Live CD edition is powered by the well known KDE Plasma Workspace and Applications project, which has been untouched. It's comprised of a single taskbar located on the bottom edge of the screen, as well as a desktop widget.
The main menu can be accessed from the taskbar, allowing users to open applications. In addition, the taskbar can be used for interacting with running programs or the system tray area. Various widgets can be added with a single mouse click.
Default applications include the Konqueror web browser, Akregator feed reader, KGet download manager, KTorrent torrent downloader, Okular document viewer, Gwenview image viewer, Amarok audio player, K3b CD/DVD/BD burning software, Dragon Player video player, and KMail email client.
In conclusion, no matter if you want to try the KDE SC desktop environment on the Fedora platform or you just want to install the latest Fedora distribution with KDE on your mid-range or high-end computer, you should download the Fedora KDE Live CD.
