GoboLinux 014pre20071122

"GoboLinux is an alternative Linux distribution which redefines the entire filesystem hierarchy. In GoboLinux you don't need a package manager because the filesystem is the package manager: each program resides in its own directory, such as /Programs/Xorg/7.1/ and /Programs/KDE-Libs/3.5.3. [...]

And here's another snapshot. Sorry about the long delay on this one; it was caused by some nasty bugs and our general unavailability in the last few weeks. Still, the feedback we had during this period was very good and I feel we are converging towards the release.

Lots of new packages in this one, including KDE 3.5.8 (it would be pretty bad to make a release with a KDE two releases behind, and since it's a point release with API/ABI stability, I considered it would be okay to upgrade.) [...]

antiX-M7 Lysistrata

"antiX-M7 goes final!

Code named "Lysistrata" it is my pleasure to offer you antiX-M7, a fast, light, fully functional and flexible distro for low-end boxes (not k5/k6), based on MEPIS7, running fluxbox window-manager by default and icewm as a choice. List of applications can be found here

antiX is a fast, lightweight and easy to install linux live CD distribution based on MEPIS for Intel-AMD x86 compatible systems. antiX offers users the "Magic of Mepis" in an environment suitable for old computers. So don't throw away that old computer yet! The goal of antiX is to provide a light, but fully functional and flexible free operating system for both newcomers and experienced users of Linux. It should run on most computers, ranging from 64MB old PII 266 systems with pre-configured 128MB RAM to the latest powerful boxes. 128MB RAM is recommended for antiX. antiX can also be used as a fast-booting rescue cd.

antiX-M7 will not run (yet) on older processors such as Pentium II (it seems that PII is ok), AMD K5, and AMD K6 as it uses an up to date i686 kernel. antiX-Spartacus should."

Anarchy Linux Axxiom-X-i686-LiveCD

"Our goal is to provide a very lightweight version of Arch Linux that can be booted from a CD-ROM, a USB drive or a hard disk transparently. This distro will extend to the newest Linux user to the advanced user, with careful consideration of everyone. [...]

The Pre-Alpha Release is finally out!
Code Name: Axxiom

This Live CD release is Pre-Alpha software and is for demonstration and testing purposes only! Please do not attempt to install this directly to your hard drive as this feature has not been completed as of yet!

The release was delayed a few days due to technical issues that had to be solved before releasing the distro.

You will need to burn this ISO image to a CD-RW or DVD-RW disc in order to be able to use it. Once you have burned the image you can boot it and choose from one of several options. You can also use a regular CD-R disc to burn Anarchy Linux but you won't be able to save sessions back to it. This is useful if you want to install it on USB keys or make copies for your friends to try it out.

This Pre-Alpha Release has three options to use:
1) LiveCD mode only
2) C2R or Copy to RAM
3) Live CD with Swap partition.

ps: This works on USB too although it is called a live CD, a detailed guide on the wiki will be written soon."

FaunOS fortytwo-0.3.2

"FaunOS is a portable (easy-to-carry), fully integrated Linux operating system with over 500 preinstalled packages. It is specifically designed to run from a portable USB Memory Device (USB Flash Drive). It can also run from a DVD.

FaunOS does not change or install anything on your hard drive--unless you specifically ask it to. This means it is safe to take your USB to a friend's computer and boot from it (see minimum requirements). When you finish, shutdown, and remove your USB key from your friend's computer, there is no trace of any of your activity on that computer.

Features include

* Ability to save files back to the USB flash drive.
* Tools that allow permanent installation to a hard drive. Supports the following install options on a hard drive:
o Permanent Arch Linux Installer using archin
o Frugal install (not to be confused with Frugalware Linux) installs the compressed FaunOS files to a hard drive permanently leading to an “unbreakable desktop” meaning the end user can totally ruin everything at runtime. To revert back to the starting point all the user has to do is reboot the machine and everything goes back to normal since all changes happen in RAM (unless the FaunOS session is saved on shutdown).
o Ability to install additional packages before permanently installing FaunOS to the hard drive.
* FaunOS Installer for creating additional FaunOS USB drives from within FaunOS."
