ArchLinux + modular KDE 4 + Tools = Chakra (Alpha 4)

Dec 30, 2009, 20:47 (0 Talkback[s])

[ Thanks to tetris4 for this link. ]

"I had heard abοut ArchLinux back from the early days that I started experimenting with GNU/Linux distributions. It caught my attention for two main reasons:

"1. The mentality of Keep It Simple Stupid (KISS) and lightweight.
2. It's a rolling distro, which means you don't need to upgrade every now and then to newer versions to keep up to date. Just update your way into everything new out there.

"To be honest, I had attempted installing ArchLinux on an old laptop back then, but I failed miserably in completing the task. Same disappointing results on Virtualbox on my desktop PC. Although Arch has extremely thorough documentation available, I was stuck somewhere between manually setting up the system files and installing and configuring a working desktop environment. As an newbie I couldn't handle the pressure, so I gave up. But not for long."
