Linux Distribution: CRUX
Url: http://www.crux.nu

CRUX is a lightweight, i686-optimized Linux distribution targeted at experienced Linux users.

About CRUX
The primary focus of this distribution is "keep it simple", which is reflected in a simple tar.gz-based package system, BSD-style initscripts, and a relatively small collection of trimmed packages. The secondary focus is utilization of new Linux features and recent tools and libraries. CRUX also has a ports system which makes it easy to install and upgrade applications.
