- Ubuntu 15.10 is just as smooth as silk - a great choice if you don't mind the Unity interface. Installs easily, and the Guest Additions run perfectly out of the box to give you the nice wide screen.
- Korora 23 is supposedly the Fedora based distro that just works - yeah right. Installation is more complicated than Ubuntu and less intuitive. The Guest Additions don't install because Korora's version of Xorg is too advanced for VBox to handle. You have to go into the Terminal, downgrade Xorg to the previous Fedora release version and try the install of the Guest Additions again. After this you get the big screen and a lovely desktop - even with funky Gnome 3. Other desktops are available but I like a walk on the wild side occasionally.
- Next Fedora and its cousins don't include Chromium in the repos for some reason. I had to download the Chromium browser and its associated libs from another website, head back to the Terminal, install the libraries and then the browser. Oy...everything works now and it was nothing a Linux geek couldn't handle but c'mon guys this is 2016 after all, not 2005.
- Korora and Fedora have replaced the yum RPM installer with the dnf RPM installer. Go figure.
