Kahel OS 03-07-2012
Supports only applications optimized for the i686 architecture
The OS is available for download as a 32-bit ISO image, which means that it supports only applications optimized for the i686 architecture. However, you will be able to use and install the system on computers that support both 32-bit and 64-bit instruction set architectures.
Here’s how to use the ISO image
The ISO image has approximately 3GB in size, which means that you must burn it onto a blank DVD disc using any CD/DVD burning software (Brasero, Xfburn, Nero) or write it on a USB thumb drive of 4GB or higher capacity with the UNetbootin or GNOME Disk Utility (Disks) applications.
The operating system can be easily installed
The operating system feature a live mode, allowing users to try it without installing it. From the boot menu, you can start the live system or install the distribution with or without Swap, run a memory test, view detailed hardware information, as well as to reboot or power off the computer.
GNOME comes with the GNOME Shell interface
As mentioned, the distro is built around the modern GNOME desktop environment, which uses the controversial GNOME Shell interface, as well as the old-school GNOME Fallback session. It can be easily used and tries to be as productive as possible.
Contains powerful, state-of-the-art applications
Among the pre-installed applications, we can mention the Chromium and Mozilla Firefox web browsers, LibreOffice office suite, Evolution email and calendar client, GIMP image editor, GnuCash personal finance manager, TweetDeck Twitter client, Miro audio and video player, Mozilla Thunderbird email and news client, as well as Bluefish HTML editor.
