Chakra Alpha 3 – Review

Filed under
Linux

Ive never been a fan of KDE. Maybe its because for me it reminds me too much of Vista and a part of my PC experiences I would rather forget, however I cannot stay with Gnome forever and since many new distro’s don’t come with XFCE it was only time before I gave KDE a run for its money.

I’d heard some good things about Chakra and since it comes packaged with KDE 4.3.1 I regarded it as the best way to test a new distro and give KDE another crack of the whip. Chakra Alpha 3 is a distro based off Arch which has a legion of fans and is highly regarded as a Linux distro.

The word Chakra has many meanings, you can read them here. If anyone can tell me which one is meant by the creators of the distro, I’d be very interested.
