About Fedora
Please read this overview.

Feedback
Fedora 26 is at least as “good” as Ubuntu 17.04/Linux Mint 18.2 and/or OpenSUSE 42.2. (In my opinion). Tell me what you think of Exton|Defender SRS in combination with the Cinnamon Desktop. Did you find the included Rescue System Tools useful?

1. Exton|Defender´s Cinnamon 3.4.6 Desktop
2. Anaconda is running (the install program)
