Adorable Fedora

Distrowatch ( is a site where information about 200+ Linux distributions is consolidated. It also ranks the distros based on the page visits.

I have always tried the top few distros in the list but somehow skipped Fedora (currently at 5th position).

This time, I wanted to install Fedora on MacBook Pro using Parallels tools.

The latest desktop version of Fedora is 23 released recently ( I am a big fan of Cinnamon desktop environment and hence downloaded 64 bit version of Fedora  23 Cinnamon from Fedora’s torrent site ( The site lists all the versions of Fedora in reverse chronological order. Fedora-Live-Cinnamon-x86_64-23.torrent , the 64 bit cinnamon ISO is about 1.2 GB in size.

After downloading the same, I proceeded to install the same on Parallels Desktop. The ISO variant was automatically detected by Parallels software as Fedora. One of the installation steps – setting up space on hard drive for installation has taken quite a bit time. Finally, installation took about 15 minutes.

The fonts and icons were showing up very tiny after the installation and restart. I had to adjust the resolution in display settings.
