An update ‘n follow-up to the Fedora Cinnamon/KDE Plasma SPINS – ‘Require a password to use this account’ post – yeeeahhhhhhh ‘n hooooooraaaaaay for no Mo’ ‘Pesky‘ Passwords!!!

Fedora’s default Workstation (GNOME) DE requires a password, but their SPINS don’t…well, the KDE Plasma, XFCE, LXQT, Mate-Compiz (?!), Cinnamon & LXDE SPINS don’t; however, I am not sure about the Sugar on a Stick SPIN since I skipped testing it:

Sugar on a Stick is a Fedora-based operating system featuring the award-winning Sugar Learning Platform and designed to fit on an ordinary USB thumbdrive (“stick”).

The other SPINS worked great. I had stated earlier that the KDE Plasma Desktop version was my #2 on Karmi’s Top 10 Linux Distros page; however, KDE Plasma always ends up being too ‘Busy‘ for me, so I decided to test the XFCE, LXQT, Mate-Compiz & LXDE SPINS to see how they worked. Desktop Environments (AKA DE ‘n SPINS ‘n Flavors ‘n etc.) ends up being a personal choice, and I ended up giving Cinnamon SPIN another ‘spin‘ around the desktop. Finally figured out how to change the Themes, and add some apps thru their dnfdragora main Software Management app. It reminds me a lot of Synaptic Package Manager, but finally figured it out. Fragmentation in Linux is *INFINITE* on every part of it…other than the spelling of “Linux.”

With Cinnamon finally figured out, and seeing the other SPINS avoided forcing humble me to use the Linux ‘Pesky‘ Password, I have decided to edit the #2 spot to reflect all Fedora SPINS (not sure about SoaS tho) in Karmi’s Top 10 Linux Distros Portability & Rescue category top spot.

Rule of Thumb – if you can’t install Ubuntu on it, then you can’t install any Linux Distro on it.
