Ark Linux Home

Ark Linux Home is a GNU/Linux distribution designed especially for desktop use, easy to use even for people without prior Linux (or computing) experience while still powerful enough for power users.

The main goals of Ark Linux Home are

- Being easy to learn and use
- Including all tools and applications the typical desktop user will need
- Including only tools and applications the typical desktop user will need - avoid becoming "bloated"
- Making installation of additional software as easy and fast as possible
- Being a technically sane development environment

Ark Linux is fully Open Source and Free Software - meaning, basically, you can freely download, use and redistribute it in both modified and unmodified form.

Ark Linux Live

Ark Linux Live is a "Live CD" version of Ark Linux - that means it doesn\'t need to be installed, you can boot the running system directly from the CD.

The primary uses of a 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. to get on the net with Linux even if you\'re on vacation and the only internet cafe in town is a Microsoft shop

While it is possible to use Ark Linux Live as your primary operating system, that is not recommended - use Ark Linux Home instead.
