Peanut?


I was browsing around looking for information on linux distro's and well i found a distro called peanut supporting like kde and gnome and was only 100mbs *around there* big. I thought to my self, what is this used for and what could you do on it. It never gave full information for what it was used for just said it was a very small distro of linux supporting kde and gnome.

Thanks for the info

distrowatch is a great place to learn about different distros and what they offer. According to the splurge there it's only 85MB, not 100

Cool

There are Linux distributions for just about every conceivable purpose, from the tiniest two-floppy rescue distro to the biggest 7-CD powerpack. Minimal distributions are nice if you have an older machine that you want to run Linux on - like a cheap laptop from eBay. That's one of the great things about Linux - you can use it for whatever you want to use it for! Need a bare-bones firewall? Need a simple e-mail station? Need a C++ programming environment? Need a powerhouse graphics platform? Need a Beowulf cluster? Need a network-booting dumb X terminal? Need a basic all-around environment for day-to-day-use? Linux can do it all!
