User-friendly Ark Linux 2007.1 sails out

By   |  August 20, 2007

The Ark Linux team have announced the release of Ark Linux 2007.1, the latest version of its multi-purpose desktop operating system. Ark Linux is an end user-friendly Linux operating system suitable for office and school work, desktop publishing, graphics, multimedia entertainment.

This latest release of Ark Linux includes a number of application upgrades, an imporoved integration of the Wine Windows emulator and better hardware detection, according to the development team.

"The release of Ark Linux 2007.1 also marks the beginning of the development cycle for Ark Linux 2007.2 – over the next few days, we will upgrade our development tree ‘dockyard-devel’ to snapshots of the upcoming KDE 4.0 desktop. Ark Linux 2007.2 is expected to be released shortly after KDE 4.0 – a pre-release for developers and people who are curious about KDE 4.0 will be made available as soon as the migration is complete," the team said in a release.

"KDE 4.0, off the bat, has more shiny bits than KDE 3! Sporting the Plasma desktop and Oxygen theme, KDE 4 will add amazing and amazingly beautiful functionality. A perfect marriage of eyecandy and mindcandy. For developers, KDE 4 and Qt 4’s programming interface will make developing graphical applications easier and faster than ever."

The Ark Linux team already has plans for KDE 4 and Ark Linux 2007.2. "One of our goals is to integrate KDE 4 as deeply into the system as we can; for example by rewriting our hotplug system to integrate with KDE’s Solid … using KDE 4 to give the user immediate access to a newly plugged in device. Some components of KDE 4, such as the Qt 4 toolkit, the Blitz graphics library and the strigi desktop search engine, are already available in Ark Linux 2007.1 today."

    So what really differentiates Ark Linux from other desktop-oriented distros?

    Nice article, but WINE is Not an Emulator.
