I recently had the opportunity to test out Kaisen Linux, and although it is still under development, my initial experience has been quite positive. While I haven't had the chance to explore every feature thoroughly, the aspects I've encountered so far have left me impressed.

One standout feature of Kaisen Linux is its streamlined approach to applications. Unlike other distributions that come bundled with a plethora of unnecessary software, Kaisen Linux opts for a more minimalist approach. This not only ensures a lean and efficient operating system but also makes it suitable for running on even the most modest hardware configurations. It's refreshing to see a Linux distribution that prioritizes performance and resource efficiency without compromising functionality.

Moreover, I must commend the Kaisen Linux team for their remarkable responsiveness and support. Whenever I encountered an issue or had a question, the staff was quick to assist and provide the necessary guidance. Their dedication and commitment to user satisfaction are highly commendable. It's reassuring to know that should any problems arise, there's a reliable support system in place.

Kaisen Linux is undoubtedly a promising project, and I'm excited to witness its future updates. The developers' commitment to refining and enhancing the distribution is evident, and I eagerly anticipate the new features and improvements that will be introduced over time. It's important to note that Kaisen Linux is not a Kali distribution, despite any misconceptions floating around. It has its own unique identity and stands out as a separate and noteworthy Linux distribution.

In conclusion, my experience with Kaisen Linux has been predominantly positive. Its lightweight nature, coupled with its dedicated team and responsive support, make it a distribution worth considering, especially for those seeking an efficient and hassle-free Linux experience. While it's still in development, I have high hopes for Kaisen Linux and eagerly await its progress in the Linux community.

Ps : It's oriented for sysadmin users

Although it has fews repositories in order to upgrade sys just aftter installing, the experience is good enough.
Intalling through NetInstall takes a decade!
It has programms that doesn't work apropriatly and some of them are paramonts, like TESTDISK which save me a lot of time. Othes doesn't work due to plugins which are not installeble, as recovery mode of GPART.
But indeed, something which has a great future among specifics distros.
Great good will for the developers may bring improvements, but not right now, for a while...
Congrats and keep going!

Very good distribution under development.

I particularly appreciate that this distribution does not look like a Kali distribution
The performance (speed) is good.

A good distribution should not contain too many unnecessary applications.
Kaisen Linux respects for my needs the number of really useful and necessary applications.
All my encouragement to the development team and continue the project that must enhance this distribution.

Anyone working in Linux, in a non monolithic environment would really enjoy the diversity of tools available with the standard install, be it for development or troubleshooting.
