New Linux distro from former RedHat employee

By Derek Sooman on January 13, 2003, 6:19 AM
"After leaving RedHat last year, Bernhard Rosenkraenzer has launched his own Linux Distro.

According to the distribution's web site, "The Ark Linux distribution is based primarily upon a Red Hat Linux 7.3 / 8.0 foundation. On top of this, we have added a new easy-to-use installer (an Ark Linux installation is only four mouse clicks away!) and extensively tailored the software applications and utilities included - all in an effort to ensure that Ark Linux provides superior ease-of-use and the features and functionality end users have told us they want."

The about page reveals the overall goal, saying "There are already plenty of good Linux distributions for servers and for advanaced users out there - but so far, nobody has tried making an easy to use version of Linux for the masses, even though the KDE user interface makes Linux very easy to use.""

That is kind of cool. I think it is pretty neat when someone just decides to make a new OS, or do something different (kinda) to try and help the masses use things better. I wouldn't mind trying this out sometime......But only after a little review and research. Is it new enough that it would suck? Or worth trying?
