The idea behind KaOS is to create a tightly integrated rolling and transparent distribution for the modern desktop, build from scratch with a very specific focus. Focus on one DE (KDE), one toolkit (Qt), one architecture (x86_64) plus a focus on evaluating and selecting the most suitable tools and applications.
All work is geared toward packaging, not developing new tools or applications. There is no goal to make the most possible software available, KaOS will stay limited in size of the repositories, and will work on quality instead of quantity. That goal makes it clear, a large user base is not what is intended or expected.
It targets users who have tried many Operating Systems/Distributions/Desktop Environments and have found they prefer a Distribution that uses all its available resources to work on one DE to make that the best it can be, and know that after their searches, the best for them is KDE.
Great distro, I used to be a big fan of Chakra. Download, burn KaOS iso to DVD, create live usb stick. Run it on my laptop, and hell yeah, I could even upgrade the system using pendrive. In chakra a simple bluetoothd restart required to use bluetooth on my laptop, but KaOS after pacman -Syu bluetooth works. The system runs so fast. Best KDE experience. Simple pacman -Syu, and never ever reinstall until now.
Wish the developer good luck, and please keep improve this beautiful arch spin.
It is the first time im using KaOS on my desktop and it is really great.
Out of the box printerconnection, scannerconnection, etc. ... .
The theme that is standard is really great, neat and licked.
Also the community is really great.
Overall range: 9/10 because i had to install skanlite for my scanner, no is just a joke.
A big thank you to the developer for this beautiful distro, keep up the good work.
Very unique project
