Fedora 21 Workstation: GNOME 3. KDE and Anaconda screenshots

Fedora 21 Workstation GNOME Classical menu

The alpha version of what will become Fedora 21 Workstation, which is scheduled for release before the end of this year (tentatively December 2 2014), was made available for download and testing yesterday.

Fedora Workstation is the branch of the distribution that’s designed primarily for use on the desktop. The other branches are Fedora Server and Fedora Cloud.

Separate ISO installation images for the GNOME 3 desktop, the main edition, and the KDE, LXDE. SoaS and Xfce desktops were released.

This article provides a few screenshots from test installations of the main edition, the KDE desktop, as well as a few screenshots of Anaconda, the Fedora system installer.

Fedora 21 Anaconda: Fedora’s graphical installer still has that not-so-friendly UI that nearly everybody has been critical of. But that all about I’m going to say about that UI, for now.

This screenshot shows that Anaconda supports setting up RAID-0, RAID-1 and RAID-10 devices.

This shows the default Btrfs partitions. LVM, the Linux Logical Volume Manager, is the default partitioning scheme.

Fedora 21 GNOME 3: The current version of the GNOME 3 desktop is GNOME 3.13.19, which will likely be GNOME 3.14 when the stable version is released on December 2 (2014). This shows the login screen.

The Sound Recorder I especially like, though I’m yet to play with it. When I install this release on real hardware, I’ll report on this application.

For developers, DevAssistant looks like a must-have app, though its website, is down. DevAssistant helps to automate the process of creating development environments for some of the most popular programming languages and development frameworks. This is one application I’ll also like to play with within the next few days.

Fedora 21 KDE: KDE 4.14 is the version that comes with this alpha release of Fedora 21. This screenshot shows the login screen.

And this, the default desktop.

Some usage information about the test installation. On this KDE test installation, I used the Btrfs file system. That’s why you see /home and /, the root file system, using the same device – /dev/sda2.
