After a little bit of pressure from the people responding to my previous post (My search for the best KDE Linux distribution), I have finally given in and tried out Chakra. The Chakra Project starts with Arch Linux as a base but, instead of forcing you to build your own distro piece of piece, Chakra comes more or less pre-packaged. Installation The installation was one of the best I’ve ever seen.
As some of you already know, I am a big fan of the KDE desktop environment (or KDE Workspaces or whatever they’re calling it these days). In my search to reach Linux KDE perfection I have tested out a number of different distributions. First there was Fedora, which I happily ran throughout the length of the experiment. Once that was finished I attempted to install and try both Kubuntu and openSUSE.
Over at The Linux Experiment we have decided to shake things up a little bit by forcing a change of desktop environments on everyone. Whatever we have been using thus far as to go for at least two weeks. If you care to follow along you can start by reading about how my transition from KDE to GNOME went below.
