Kwort is a minimalist and fast Linux distribution that combines simple and and useful applications to create a system for advanced users who finds a strong and effective desktop. Kwort phylosophy is about having a system running with the less amount of processes and take away all complexity as much as possible.
Kwort is a Linux distribution based on CRUX; we make use of their port system to build a set of minimal packages. While Kwort use binary packages, we offer the users this port system as well. Looking for the best tools aligned to Kwort's phylosophy is an on-going task during the whole year.
Because of all this, Kwort is extremely simple and straight forward Linux system.
The less, the better: the user decides what to run; we don't start uneeded processes. Because of that, speed is built-in. Kwort can boot in less than 8 seconds to its full running GUI on any modern machine.
Kwort's package manager (kpkg) makes software management easier. The CRUX port system & docker stack are also available. We also know that a lot happens on the web, so we provide the most regular tools and browsers.
Kwort's GUI combines Openbox and tint2 with a set of tools to have a simple and complete GUI which doesn't get in the users' way.
Kwort full releases happends on yearly basis so our base stack and toolchain is updated regularly. Additionally, we release software security patches and bugfixes on daily/weekly basis.
