Feather Linux

We defined "Skinny Linux" earlier this year as "any version of the Linux operating system that doesn't require fast new processors or large amounts of memory."

Add "Feather Linux to a growing list of Linux distributions that fit this description Puppy and Damn Small Linux are previous examples.

According to the developer's Web site,, Feather Linux is "a Linux distribution which runs completely off a CD or a USB pendrive and takes up under 128Mb of space. It is a Knoppix remaster (based on Debian), and tries to include software which most people would use every day on their desktop."
