I installed Chakra Linux on an old notebook after a few years away from it. I now have Kubuntu, Korora (Fedora) and Chakra systems on the go.
Out of those it seems Kubuntu has the least direction. It seems to be just plodding along, forever in the shadow of its misspent older sibling.
There is an effort to make an integrated, single-option KDE distribution in https://kaosx.us/. The project is similar to Chakra, but is eyeing a move to Illumos instead of Linux for the kernel which is kinda scary.
Let’s hope Chakra matures to be the user-friendly, Linux and KDE-based OS for everyone.
