Newest Klikit

Postby down8ve on Sat May 03, 2008 10:19 am

I've used Mint in the past and really liked it. My weakness is that my skills and aesthetics often fight each other over my choice of desktop environment.

Right now I am using the second release candidate of Klikit. I really, really like it. I've added pulse audio, as it is based on Kubuntu 7.10 and PA was not included. It is,of course, very similar to Mint KDE, yet a better comparison of Klikit to Kubuntu would be to say it is much like PCLinuxOS as compared to Mandriva. The difference is that it does use the Ubuntu repositories.

Tried it, hated it. Ok, it is a RC, but still, it broke my GRUB beyond repair (or old GRUB, could still boot Klikit), I couldn't even use super grub to restore my old one, for some reason. Secondly, dead slow. Don't know why, but the live session was awfully slow, HDD install a bit faster, but still slow. Maybe some of these issues will be fixed in stable, but I kind of doubt I'll try it out, though that is just my humble opinion..

What differentiates it from Kubuntu other than the online software installer?

I tried it (in a virtual box of course) - it looks nice, it hangs randomly though...

They have some configuration GUIS and are using KBFX by default, I think.. Other than that, not much, I am much more pleased with the 64 bit installation I got of Kubuntu 8.04 right now, even got flash working (natively, no 32 bit browser emulation!)

I was a part of Klikit when it first was an idea.

At the beginning it kinda became a home to disgruntled Linsire and Xandros users who felt betrayed by the MS deal and other things.

The distro is okay and plugging along at its own pace. As opposed to looking at it as a distro solely...consider their motto...by friends and for friends. It is more like a online lug that has its own distro as a project. From that perspective, it is kinda fun.

I do not have time to play in the sandbox there anymore...but there are some good peeps there.
