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.

I was intrigued with Chakra's ground-up reconstruction and the notion that developers need to keep it simple, stupid -- as in the KISS Principle. Chakra, though, is clearly a work in progress and needs more maturing before it can attract non-technical users.
