KaOS

Last Update: 2019-07-13 15:02 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.

Table Notes and Explanations
  • Select view: Major packages only (52) All tracked packages (226)
  • 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 "plasma-desktop" package 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.

It is pretty bad. Machine slows down compared to other distros like opensuse and ubuntu. Octopi package manager is a disaster. You can't as much there, If you find it, like firefox and chrome, then it does not install, because of retrieval issues. Also, poor fan control on my machine HP HDX 9300 with clean fans. Machine runs faster n ubuntu and opensuse. Looks nice, but I will pass on Kaos. The updates have consistemt retrrieval erors. Save yourself the headache with this distro.

As the rating says already, it is almost perfect. It works, the programs I use are available, it looks amazing (because it's KDE). What should be improved, just this one point, are the amount of users, so the forum becomes a bit more active.

I have tried other distros more than 20 years, but the KaOS is a best.
Every distros is a most of problem.
KaOs is simple, fast, easy.
Excellent sound and good volume level, same font sizes, and same mouse theme for all applications, all programs are available from the repository.

I recommend to everyone!
