Bluestar Linux is an Arch based Linux distribution that uses KDE as it’s desktop environment. Straight away you’ll notice there have been a few changes here and there to the default look and feel of KDE out of the box. It comes installed with a large suite of applications including Octopi which is a GUI for managing packages.
As you can see in the video I felt there is a lot of potential for this distribution but there are a few areas where it needs improvement. It could do with a lot of debloating and taking away applications that perform the same functions as each other. Doing this would also help in slimming down the distribution and free up a little bit of extra memory as it’s not the lightest KDE implementation as far as RAM is concerned. Overall though I think it’s an interesting take on KDE which a lot of users will enjoy using. It’s built on top of Arch Linux which means you’ll always have the very latest versions of applications as soon as they become available.
