About SaxenOS
STX Linux is a lightweight Slackware-based installation CD, using the Equinox Desktop Environment. It is especially suited to be installed on older and low-specification computers.

The new visitors a bit of introduction: SaxenOS is a desktop Linux distribution especially targeted to older hardware. It's a live CD and it boots from your CDROM. This way you can test if everything works.

SaxenOS Desktop Server is as it seems the first working Live CD with a running LTSP Linux Terminal Server. This means you can serve thin client PC's from a live CD. Well, one or two the slow CDROM is able to serve but never the less it's great for showing off, testing and a 15 minutes server-setup.

Releases:
2008-04-09 00:00:00.0 SaxenOS 2008 Beta 2 has been released    View
After my usual year of silence I'm starting with a new SaxenOS release. Beta 2 is out since last Sunday. It's based on PCLinuxOS for the teaching needs of LPI courses now (rpm package manager is part of LPIC1 preps). I work now at an education company as teacher and admin. We release SaxenOS 2008 together and so each of us has benefits.

Overview: complete Linux desktop; lightweight (about 1.25 GB installed, 379 MB ISO); based on Slackware 11, Zenwalk 2.8, Wolvix and SLAX; works nicely on old hardware (oldest system tested: K5/75, 64 MB RAM, 130 MB swap ... very slow but works); hard disk Installer from Wolvix; the brand new EDE 1.1 desktop, looks very much like Windows 98/ME/2000.
