The EverydayLinux portal has published a review of recently released Chakra Linux 2015.11 'Fermi'. Chakra is an Arch based rolling GNU/Linux distribution featuring KDE as default desktop.
Chakra Linux shares a lot of similarities with Arch Linux although it isn't based on it and the packages are not compatible between the two systems.I tend to steer clear of Arch Linux on this site because whilst it is clearly a great project in the minds of a lot of users it also requires a higher level of competency when compared with the likes of Ubuntu, Mint, Zorin and PCLinuxOS.Chakra also requires a certain amount of skill to use. When I first started using it I did get to the stage where I wondered exactly who the target audience for Chakra is.
