KahelOS is based on Arch Linux.
KahelOS is the first and remains to be the only Filipino Linux Distro with the rolling release model on Arch Linux + GNOME. In the community, it is the first to release (non-beta) such Linux OS on Arch Linux + GNOME.
KahelOS is not just an Operating System so to speak. IT is not just a Technology Product on a Linux and Open Source Platform added to the thousands of FREE Distros already available in the community. IT does not explicitly want to be different or to be set apart from the rest. However, among others, we simply would like KahelOS (just like our team) to be the embodiment of our IT Values and Philosophy.
It is also a gift and a manifestation of the collaborating Filipino spirit that believes in the competence of the Global IT Community.
As an open source software, KahelOS shall therefore maintain to remain free of charge with an active community to support it.
The term kahel is the Tagalog/ Filipino word for the color or fruit "orange".
Depicting fun, energy, fresh and flamboyant; KahelOS, its team and community, would like to imbibe the aura and ambiance of warmth and being sociable.
Kahel also signifies hunger or thirst for knowledge and new things as the color orange is a stimulus affecting both mind and body,for doing more activities, having the appetite and socialization.
