Chakra 2013.02 Benz review

Filed under
Linux

Chakra 2013.02 Benz released. No new features implemented in Tribe, the graphical installation program, Kapudan, the first boot program, gets new features.

Chakra is a desktop distribution forked from Arch Linux. Like Arch Linux, it is a rolling-release distribution, which means once you install it in your computer, you never need to reinstall when a new version comes along – the process of applying updates takes care of that.

The latest edition (released Sunday, February 10), is Chakra 2013.02, code-named Benz.

Not too long ago, Chakra Linux was one of my favorite desktop distributions, even made my list of the Top 6 KDE distributions in 2011.

Here's where Vala Panel AppMenu comes in.

Reviews: OpenELEC and Clear Linux

I next turned my attention to a distribution which has only recently been added to the DistroWatch database: Clear Linux. The Clear Linux distribution is unusual in a few ways. For one, the project is not designed to be a full featured or general purpose operating system; Clear Linux focuses on performance more than features. The distribution is fairly minimal and is designed with cloud computing in mind, though it may also be used in other areas, particularly on servers. Read more
