A lean KDE Distribution

Home-es

La idea detrás de KaOS es crear una distribución rolling release estrechamente integrada y transparente para el escritorio moderno, construída desde cero con un enfoque muy específico. Orientada a solo un DE (KDE), solo un toolkit (Qt), solo una arquitectura (x86_64), sumado a un enfoque en la evaluación y selección de las mas adecuadas herramientas y aplicaciones. Todo el trabajo está orientado al empaquetado, no al desarrollo de nuevas herramientas o aplicaciones.

No es una meta tener disponible la mayor cantidad de software posible, KaOS mantendrá limitado el tamaño de sus repositorios, y trabajará en la calidad en lugar de cantidad. Esto pone de manifiesto que una gran base de usuarios no es lo que se pretende o espera.
