Our community favour Qt and KDE software, as well as simplicity. Simplicity is about being easy-to-understand, clearly structured, and uncluttered. This makes for a more stable operating system, that in turn is easier to maintain. As a trade-off, packages that require GNOME and other GTK+ dependencies are not included, with the exceptions of select software in the
[gtk] repository, for which there are no suitable replacements.
In June 2006, our community initiated the #kdemod packaging project to produce a lightweight and modular version of the KDE Software Compilation, due to dissatisfaction with the version distributed by Arch Linux.
In December 2008, the first alpha Chakra™ live media release was made, with #archlinux, #kdemod, and #tribe on it, borrowing the name from traditional Indian medicine and suggesting the idea of continual motion.
In May 2010, the first release of the Chakra™ operating system was made.
In December 2010, KDEmod was finally succeeded by Chakra.
