KaOS

Last Update: 2017-07-13 22:53 UTC


KaOS is a desktop Linux distribution that features the latest version of the KDE desktop environment, the Calligra office suite, and other popular software applications that use the Qt toolkit. It was inspired by Arch Linux, but the developers build their own packages which are available from in-house repositories. KaOS employs a rolling-release development model and is built exclusively for 64-bit computer systems.

Popularity (hits per day): 12 months: 38 (281), 6 months: 42 (250), 3 months: 45 (242), 4 weeks: 81 (139), 1 week: 71 (133)

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.

The latest KaOS image can actually be installed on my laptop. Not a single 'abort'. Which ended a record run of 'only with a USB'. And may I tell you thatr KaOS is the best Arch distro. Ther KDE is killer fast and including the most synergised office suite available(+ my favourite, Softmaker is second, but not just because of an awesome diagram addon, Flow), Calligra Office Suite.
KaOS is snappy fast and really shows the world what the KDE-desktop can do.
And KaOS comes with Octopi software manager which is what I insrtall in every Arch installation.
I was going toi give a 9.8 (because reallyt nothing is pewrfect and sometrhing can always be improved... the Linux credo... fork and strive to improve. KaOS has done an awesome job, so 9.8 gets rounded to 10.

Enjoy,

/Dave Berryman
