    Phoronix: Fedora 21 Is Looking & Working Very Well -- Best Fedora Release Yet?

    While we're still likely at least months out from the official release of Fedora 21, I've been running it a lot since last month's F21 Alpha release and it's been working out very well. Fedora 21 is easily shaping up to be the best Fedora release yet and the stability/saneness of the development packages is also a charming change compared to some of the more notorious Fedora releases of the past...

    I totally switched to it but has anyone tested KDE5 on it. Anyhow I don't see any improvement between yum and dnf. Maybe yum is just interface to it!

      If you install dnf-yum package, then yes, yum is merely an alias for compatibility (Fedora 22 will have dnf and dnf-yum by default). Otherwise dnf is a fork of yum with the internals substantially rewritten to use the libsolv library. The reason for this change is outlined

        Where are the KDE5 daily builds of Fedora? Google yields plasma5 on top of Kubuntu, so I installed it instead of Fedora.


        Fedora has a shitty webpage interface (just as its new installer) for downloading daily ISOs.

          Not sure why you are having any trouble. The very first result for "plasam5 fedora" is

              When i started to use Linux several years ago Fedora installer was not that bad but since some years, it gone to the dogs....i simply gave up of that distro for that (OK, there was some other things about it that i didn't like).

                  It is a repository. You can install it in a live environment if you want to.

                    I could also compile from source, or write my own version of plasma5, or build a rocket and fly to mars, if I wanted to.
                    It's typical Fedora logic, instead of doing what anyone expects (putting out ISOs), they (just like Gnome3) do something else, worse. That's why I ended up installing Kubuntu's plasma5.
