Chakra 2012.08 review

Filed under
Linux

Chakra 2012.08 review, code-named Claire, is the latest stable release of Chakra Linux, a semi-rolling release, desktop-centric, Linux distribution forked from Arch Linux.

Chakra uses the K Desktop Environment (KDE) exclusively, so it is no surprise then that Chakra 2012.08 was named after Claire Lotion, a popular figure in the KDE community who passed away recently.

Chakra Claire comes with its share of new and old/updated features. One new feature (if it qualifies as a feature) that will affect what type of machine you can install it on, is that support for i686 platforms was discontinued.
