Ark Linux H2O - 2007.1

Filed under
Linux

Ark Linux is a distribution whose goal is ease of installation and use for users without prior Linux (or computer) experience while being robust enough to satisfy the needs of advanced users. This distribution is mainly aimed towards desktop use. Two versions are available for download, Ark Linux Home which is a cd for a complete linux desktop and Ark Linux Live, a bootable CD that will launch Ark Linux without the need to install it. Ark also gives us the possibility of installing it from a USB memory stick, but for this review we will use the normal CD installation we just downloaded. If you are interested in installing Ark from a USB stick you can find the instructions at this address.

System requirements:

The minimum system requirements for Ark Linux are:

i586 class processor or superior
at least 64 MB RAM
2.5 GB of free hard disk space.

As we said, these are minimum requirements, at least an i686 class processor with 128 MB RAM are recommended.
