Ark Linux is a GNU/Linux distribution designed especially for desktop use, easy to handle even by people without a Linux background experience while still powerful enough for experienced users.The main goals of Ark Linux are:
￭ be easy to learn and use
￭ include all the tools and applications the typical desktop user will need
￭ avoid becoming "bloated"
￭ make the installation of additional software as easy and fast as possible
￭ be a technically sane development environmentAbout Ark Linux Live:
Ark Linux Live is a Live CD version of Ark Linux, which means it can be booted directly from the CD, without requiring installation.The primary uses of the Live CD are:
￭ Recovering a normal system after a big hardware or software failure (Ark Linux will launch a special live CD for this purpose later, with more recovery tools and fewer other tools)
￭ Checking the system out without any risk
￭ Showing others what Linux is like, on their own hardware
￭ Taking your favorite operating system with you; e.g. surfing the net with Linux even if you're on vacation and the only Internet cafe in town is a Microsoft shop;
