Arch Linux 2009.8 Installation Visualization â VirtualBox

,----[ Quote ]
| Hereâs another visual walkthrough of an 
| installation. This time of Arch Linux Core 
| (Core has all the base packages on CD and you 
| have the option for a network, or cd 
| install), which is typically for the more 
| advanced Linux users.
| Iâm not going to commentate per screenshot 
| because well, itâd take me FOREVER. Iâll do a 
| few though, and hope I donât get carried 
| away. 


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

,----[ Quote ]
| Yet for another time, I find myself switching 
| distros. I hope am not addicted or something 
| :) . If not for anything else, I am enjoying 
| the ride! This time is Chakra, and I must 
| admit, am impressed!



Chakra Alpha 3 â Review!

,----[ Quote ]
| Ive always prefered the minimalist DE.  XFCE
| was always a favorite of mine and whilst my
| hardware is more than modern enough to run
| the latest DE, Ive always been of the opinion
| that no matter what your specs, you shouldnât
| needlessly throw CPU cycles away on âbling
| featuresâ that apart from being visually
| appealing serve little purpose.  Having said
| that I cannot live in the past forever so
| âonwards and upwardsâ with KDE 4.3.1!
| [...]
| It would not be fair to be critical of Chakra
| on the basis of it being incomplete in terms
| of default packages, if this is an example of
| later versions I can see Chakra being VERY
| popular.  Its fast, functional & compatible.
| In regards to KDE I found it smooth, fast and
| puts Windows 7 to shame  since I was running
| a very GFX appealing distro on only 512mb of
| ram and an old rig.


First Look: Chakra Project Alpha 2

| Iâve enjoyed my time looking at Chakra, and while it has many rough edges to
| iron out before an official release, I do think itâs potential is there for
| all to see. Arch is a great distribution and building on top of it like this
| makes perfect sense to me. Iâm not sure exactly who Chakra is aimed at but it
| doesnât seem to be new Linux users. They even say that on their website. I
| think for Arch users who like KDE itâs definitely worth a look, even in this
| early stage. Why not get involved and help them make it even better. Some
| knowledge of Arch is essential if youâre planning to get involved with
| Chakra. Having the backup of my Arch experience really helped me fix some
| teething problems. The liveCD works perfectly already, they just need to
| tweek the installer a little and theyâll be onto a winner. One thing is for
| sure, when they finally get a full release of Chakra ready for public
| consumption, Iâll be back to look at it. Itâs one to keep your eye on I say.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
