  • Chakra GNU/Linux: Pure KDE Goodness

    Chakra GNU/Linux is a unique spin on Arch. Originally a KDEmod for Arch in 2006, it broke off in its own distro sometime in 2010. It is a pure QT distro meaning that no GTK based programs are available in the default repos. Following the KISS principle tightly it is  straight to the point. Also following the half-rolling release model it updates with the latest (stable By default) versions. It also uses its own repos, the CCR. The only complaint most people have is the current lack of a gui package manager, making users rely on pacman. Although it is being worked on at the moment.

    Conclusion: Chakra is a wonderful pure KDE distro, and probably even the best. Fun Fact: The article was written in Chakra.

  • Windows 8 Doesn’t Suck

    I myself would stop reading after seeing the title. But that mind set is what made this conspiracy anyways. You people do realize everyone said XP sucked when it came out. It’s just those Linux fanboys complaining about nothing. Windows 8 is the true successor to Windows 7 and here’s why.

    1. Integration – Windows 8 has more online based services that go far beyond Windows 7. A lot consider this a bad thing, im kind of neutral on this. However it is in a way a huge improvement on 7.

    2. Speed – Sure 7  was fast but have you even seen 8 run?

    3. Variety Is Always Good – Windows 8 is different then 7 sure, but its more of a good thing than bad. Just ask the hardcore Linux users about their overly saturated variety of everything.

    I’d just like to note that i’m not sucking up to big brother Micro$oft. I was just blown away at the awesomeness of Windows 8.
