A certain Christopher Smart baled me up yesterday and insisted that I

"Ahh, that was the old Kororaa" (or words to that effect). The new one
is called Fedora Remix.
Why Fedora? https://kororaa.org/why-fedora/
(old Kororaa was based on Gentoo Linux. I blame the demise of Gentoo
on the demise of Kororaa... I don't think Fedora is in such a

Well, it all booted up and works and looks pretty slick. Chris has
