Table Notes and Explanations

(Please refer to the table below.)
  • Select view:
  • To compare the software in this project to the software available in other distributions, please see our Compare Packages page.
  • Notes: In case where multiple versions of a package are shipped with a distribution, only the default version appears in the table. For indication about the GNOME version, please check the "nautilus" and "gnome-shell" packages. The Apache web server is listed as "httpd" and the Linux kernel is listed as "linux". The KDE desktop is represented by the "kdelibs" and "plasma-desktop" packages and the Xfce desktop by the "xfdesktop" package.
  • Colour scheme: green text = latest stable version, red text = development or beta version. The function determining beta versions is not 100% reliable due to a wide variety of versioning schemes.

I am linux noob. And I am using Chakra only on one computer strictly for online surfing and usual home tasks like watching videos and archiving pictures. I am using it for cca 4 years.
Rolling release model is flawless. You just need to update every few weeks and I never needed to reinstall the OS from scratch. I also never lost any files.

Sometimes I find some smaller bugs, like when there is major update on Libre Office my local language gets replaced with some indonesian thing, or occasionally I find some obscure software feature or two that dont work as expected. Or screen resolution changes or simple things like that, but nothing major. If you have any issues often Arch linux forums that are very populated have right solution, if you dont find your problem on Chakra forums and wikis.

Easy to use even for people who only saw windows in their lives. Organizing desktop gadgets and widgets might be a bit confusing until you figure out how you manipulate them, but thats one time issue.

But generally its perfect and stable. No crashes, no freezing or lagging. Fast boot up and shut down time. Works well even on old computers with 2GB ram. Repositories contain all the standard software regular user might need. There is even GUI version of pacman called Octopi.

I am just an averagew user and was attracted to Chakra's semi-rolling release model. So far I am really enjoying myself! As for pros, installs easily getting an Arch-based system up and going without any fuss, Steam is working well. Cons i haven't really had of note come up yet. Recommended to those who find Chakra's model appealing.

I'm using it for a period of one week. I'm big fan of KDE. Before that I was using openSUSE 42.2 for a period of half year (probably more) so I can compare this two. The distro is very stable and polished. I've only one bug with sound card after resume from suspend, but it can be easily corrected. I'm sure that it's a matter of patching kernel.. It's much faster than openSUSE, especially time of booting (3x faster), it's comparable with Debian or ArchLinux. Chakra repos are integrated with KDE Settings, which is nice thing, and for orthodox kde users, there is option to disable gtk repos or lib32, etc. Multimedia, codecs, everything is out of the box, there is no need to add nothing else. Default browser is qupzilla is very usable and good (the newest version 2.1.2, to compare with last kubuntu 17.04, where only very old version is available), but it lacks some features like installing plugins. There is only adblock and a few othres. I've used it for a week because it's native KDE browser. It's quite good and fast, but.. I returned to firefox, because some features available which are important for me. Firefox is integrated with kde (also thunderbird) which is similar to openSUSE (for example in the last kubuntu it's not available even with additional repos and here it's out of the box).
Someone mentioned package manager.. Hmm, I'm using pacman. This octopi is similar to old Debian package manager synaptic, it's quite simple, and I've good felling about it, much better than about Kubuntu package manager.
And important.. I disabled baloo file indexer at the beginning with one click. In Kubuntu this was very hard, because after disabling it was still working, etc. I don't see also akonadi proceesses working in the background. To be truly, I don't need it also.
What more to say? I recommend this distro for these who need KDE-integrated apps. You don't have much choice here, so this is the distro for people who know what they want.
