Korora was born out of a desire to make Linux easier for new users, while still being useful for experts. The main goal of Korora is to provide a complete, easy to use system for general computing.
Korora sets the default applications to those that end users typically want. For example, Firefox is the default web browser in KDE (instead of Konqueror) and VLC is the default media player (instead of Dragon Player in KDE and Totem in GNOME). There is generally one popular program installed for each task, although alternatives (such as the Google Chrome web browser) are available via the package manager for a quick install.
Korora also pre-configures several third party repositories, making it easier to install additional software that everyone uses. These include:
Users can easily install Adobe's Flash plugin via the package manager, thanks to the flash-plugin-helper RPM metapackage.
Korora makes use of Ubuntu's Jockey Device Driver manager, for simple installation of third party drivers such as those for NVIDIA graphics cards and certain wireless devices.
Korora also comes with all the development tools and kernel headers you need to easily install out of tree kernel modules, such as those required by VirtualBox. These modules are automatically built when you get a new kernel update thanks to Dynamic Kernel Module Support.
