Description: "The CRUX team is happy to announce the release of CRUX 3.1 for the x86_64 architecture. CRUX 3.1 comes with a multilib toolchain which includes glibc 2.19.0, GCC 4.8.3 and Binutils 2.24, Linux kernel 3.12.24. CRUX 3.1 ships with X.Org 7.7 and X.Org Server 1.15.1. Important libraries have been updated to new major versions which are not ABI compatible with the old versions: libpng has been updated to version 1.6; libjpeg has been replaced by libjepeg-turbo; libmng has been updated to version 2.0. We strongly advise against manually updating to CRUX 3.1 via ports, since these changes will temporarily break the system. Important notes: udev has been replaced by eudev; the upgraded eudev will rename your Ethernet devices like udev...."

Pros: Extremely high level of optimisation at install time.
Cons: Networking is a pain in the ass and small amount of packages.

A fantastic distribution, highly customisable, very fast to boot and great init system.

Networking can be difficult, under certain circumstances, but shouldn't be too difficult to fix.

Repositories contain not much more than the essentials.

Their wiki is a fantastic resource for all extra little tidbits that you might need to work out.

Overall, I rate this distribution, very highly.
