Fedora: Fox Desktop Review


Fox is a Linux desktop based on Fedore Core 4 that draws inspiration from OS X.
Fox Desktop has packed quite a bit of popular software into this distribution. For starters, OpenOffice 2.0.1 is included as well as Firefox 1.5, amaroK music player, Kaffeine for videos and much more programs that you would need to use on a daily or occasional basis. For mail, Kmail is the default program and you have the ever popular Kontact as well since it comes with KDE.

The layout of the menus are nice and easy to follow. If you hover over icons in the dock, you will see it magnify and let you know what program it is. If you left the program open for example you'll see a caret (upward pointing arrow head) underneath the program's icon, as you would if you used OS X.
