Description: "Finally Kwort Linux 3.5 has arrived. We have been testing this release for a month and it needed just one public release candidate to get a known bug-free system. Those who installed RC1 can upgrade to the final version with kpkg. In this version our system received a complete update, from the toolchain to the latest X11 applications. This might be the last i686 version as we are planning to move to x86_64 for our next release. We are rolling this release with Linux kernel 3.5.4, the latest stable version of Chromium (Firefox is available on the CD image in more/xapps). The latest LibreOffice is also available on the CD image for you to install with kpkg. Most noticeable changes are in the installer and kpkg, as both got a speed up and also I gave kpkg the ability to upgrade a single package or the whole system."
Keywords: CRUX-based kernel-3.5.4

Pros:
Cons:



Kwort is described as a distro for advanced users, which apparently means abandoning all the advances of the last 20 years. The documentation tells you that on rebooting after installation you need to create a user, set a locale, edit xorg.conf, set up a network, configure init, and so on.

In fact, I never got that far. The installer started by running cfdisk, which crashed. Luckily I didnít need it, and I was able to complete the installation and reboot. When I ran startx, I discovered that Openbox couldnít run because of a missing dependency. I could have gone on to configure everything from the command line, but with two major bugs already found I really couldnít see the point.
