What is KaOS Linux

KaOS is a desktop Linux distribution that features the latest version of the KDE Plasma desktop environment, the Calligra office suite, and other popular software applications that use the Qt toolkit. It was inspired by Arch Linux, but the developers build their own packages. KaOS Linux is built exclusively for 64-bit computer systems.

KaOS 2017.01 New Features and Improvements

KaOS 2017.01 is a new stable build of the project's rolling-release, desktop-oriented Linux distribution featuring KDE Plasma 5.8.5. All parts of the Midna artwork have been updated, most notably a new sddm theme that uses a layered QML model. This makes selecting between the default regular Plasma session or optional Wayland much clearer.

There is also a new move to the right vertical panel as the default. As always with this rolling distribution, you will find the very latest packages for the Plasma desktop, this includes Frameworks 5.29.0, Plasma 5.8.5, KDE Applications 16.12.0 and not-yet-released ports of KDE Applications. All built on Qt 5.7.1. Linux 4.8.15 has a change as to how the kernel image is created. Instead of using an install file that only gets called on kernel updates, a new hook file is used.

Hope you found this KaOS 2017.01 installation and review tutorial helpful and informative. Please consider sharing it. Your feedback and questions are welcome!
