Cucumber Linux

Last Update: 2018-05-04 00:30 UTC

Cucumber Linux aims to provide a Linux distribution that is usable as an every day, general purpose operating system. It aims to this in as minimalistic a way as possible and in a way that follows the Unix Philosophy. Cucumber Linux favors simplicity and modularity of design over simplicity of use. While developed independently, Cucumber's design is heavily influenced by Slackware Linux.

I think this operating system is really well thought out. Just started playing around with it today and I find it to be relatively straightforward to use as an intermediate Linux user. I was not a fan of the bible quotes, however I quickly removed them by removing the fortune package (I ran "removepkg fortune" as root). The OS purports to be aimed towards simplicity, stability and security, and if it continues to hold true to those principles I may have found my next distro of choice.

Installs and runs smoothly. It's very stable once I got it up and running and quite up to date on security patches.

Unable to run it on two machines exept virtual.
Bible quotes are in no way to my taste, linux should be free of anything with regard to race or Religion.0

I will not touch this distro again.
