Fedora-Workstation-Live-x86_64-34_Beta-1.2 is made for ‘Password Dependent’ Desktop OS users who enjoy having ‘Nanny Linux’ coddle them. These types of ‘Password Dependent’ Desktop OS users apparently love the annoying “Authenticate” popups like this one:
Don’t give me the – “it’s for security” – Linux Inquisition routine either. Kids playing with Dad’s Linux computer can beat the so-called protection of the annoying Linux password. Actual ‘Threat Groups *ATTACK* Linux daily with ease’ … see my *Linux Security Issues* page for a quick take on how unsuccessful the annoying Linux password is at security.

The Fedora 34 Beta Cinnamon Spin is looking excellent! Only issue I found was the sound settings didn’t work nor did it spot any speakers…my Fedora 33 Cinnamon Spin root installations all have sound settings ‘n speakers working, so hopefully this is just a Beta issue.
LINUX IS LIKE A BOX OF CHOCOLATES – you never know what you’re gonna get!
