    Who would have believed! Chakra, for the masses? Really? Yup. Here's a long, ethusiastic review of Chakra Linux 2011.09 with KDE desktop, based on Arch Linux, including Wireless, Bluetooth, Samba sharing, look & feel, multimedia playback, desktop activities, desktop effects, unique installation with post-install configurations, BURG bootloader, dual-boot configuration with Windows 8, package management, bundle management, installation of Chromium and Firefox, applications choices, system resources, stability, suspend & resume, Touchpad configurations, surprising ease of use, some problems, and more. Thou shalt lovest.

    This got me interested in Chakra again.
    A previous beta once made my CPU & fan go in such serious overdrive, to the point I thought it was about to wreck my test laptop.
    Will give it a spin when I've got the time.
    Thanks for the review, Mrk!

    Marble crash is on 64-bit, I tested 32-bit here :)
    So not quite... but based on the app crash dump, it ought to happen everywhere.
