KaOS 2022.10 is released, a continuous update distribution aimed at providing a desktop based on the latest releases of KDE and applications using Qt. Of the distribution-specific design features, one can note the placement of a vertical panel on the right side of the screen. The distribution is developed with Arch Linux in mind, but maintains its own independent repository of more than 1500 packages, and also offers a number of its own graphical utilities. The default file system is XFS. Builds are published for x86_64 systems (2.9 GB).
