Chakra: A Simple, Strong Energy Center for Your Desktop

Filed under
Linux

Chakra is an unusual Linux distro that rethinks what the Linux desktop should be. It gives users the tools to do it their way.

This interesting approach to learning what makes Linux tick, however, is not a good starting point for first-time Linux users.
