Fedora 26 server 64bit - tested VM.

I install Fedora 26 into simple way with the Netinstall Image (64-bit 484MB ) from here.
I used the last VirtualBox to test this Fedora 26 net image.
It took some time because the hardware used is without the dedicated video card and an I5 processor. The basic idea of this test was to see how to install it.
It's interesting to watch: the number of packages installed per time unit, the startup steps for the base installation and the work environment.
The other steps are more complex because it matters what you want to do with this linux. It depends on how much you want to adapt it to your hardware machine or whether you will make it a web server, ftp, sftp or a graphics rendering or video rendering station.
The total installation time in VirtualBox was one hour and seven minutes. The resulting video was modified by changing the number of frames for a faster viewing, (from 72 to 172).
The reason was the first steps to install Fedora not to set a specific linux server.
I use linux command under root account to install and set Fedora 26:
#dnf update 
#dnf upgrade 
#dnf grouplist 
#dnf grouplist -v
#dnf install @cinnamon-desktop
#dnf -y group install "Fedora Workstation"
#dnf install setroubleshoot
#sestatus
#sestatus -v
#getenforce
#dnf install clamtk
#echo "exec /usr/bin/cinnamon-session" >> ~/.xinitrc
#startx
Let's see the record video of this test install :

News: Send files on WhatsApp.

The WhatsApp software lets users share multimedia content, but you can't send files directly to other users.
If you wanted to send unsupported file formats like .apk, .zip etc, you had to rename the file to a supported file format.
For example if you wanted to send the apk for your favorite app, you’d rename it such that it ends with .txt. I tested with Whatsapp™ For PC extension - Opera add-ons and works great.
I send a document file (.doc) with an approximate size of 5 Mb, without any interruption of the connection and a fluid transfer to the application.

Note:

You need to know also, there’s a limit of 100 MB to any attachment.
The executable file is not allowed ( like: .exe, .dll).
Meanwhile, messaging app Telegram is still leading the pack when it comes to file size restrictions — it has supported 1.5 GB files since its launch.
