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

(Please refer to the table below.)
  • 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.

One of the best implemetation of KDE desktop. The system appears to be well integrated with the applications that are installed. As it is a rolling release, you get to have the latest packages.
I've been using it for about a couple of weeks and so far it seems to be a well polished linux distribution.

I've downloaded the ISO, ran it in an Virtual Box Live version. It looks great, the KDE is very professionally crafted to work with this Linux distribution with hardly any flaws. The boot up process was straight forward in live mode, it automatically installed the Nvidia drivers. Thus, so far, what I've seen in the Live mode works great and I think it has a lot of potential. Definitively its a distro to watch as it develops with time.

I really like the distro and its look but it has a few bugs and hangs up from time to time as well as loosing bootability! I will keep trying it on VB
