    The second alpha of Chakra was released for some days ago. Notice this is alpha so !caution! do not use in production environments etc etc.

    Chakra is a new distrobution which can be summed up as: ArchLinux+KDEmod+user friendly

    The new alpha has KDE4.2, Koffice 2 beta6, Amarok 2.0.1 as default

    Enjoy :)

    I have been using ArchLinux+KDEmod now for a couple of years and as soon i heard about chakra i knew i had to try it out. So i jumped on alpha1 directly when it got released and while it was kinda buggy i really liked it.

    Now when alpha2 has been released i see alot of improvement, which many comes from kde4.2 of course but also to their own programs such as shaman (even though i only use the cli), arxin, tribe etc.

    It's still not entirely perfect, i don't think any distro will be until at least kde4.4 is released. But at least now i have removed ubuntu which i dual booted before and dedicated my computer entirely to Chakra and KDE (iam sure i will install ubuntu once again when 9.04 gets released, can't help it, ubuntu is a great distro) :)
