there's been interest in a Linux that can boot to UAE. So I thought it would be a good idea to have our very own EAB Linux distro.
- boot directly into UAE. Users don't even need to see they are using Linux
- be tiny (<100MB) so it fits on a USB stick alongside your ADF collection
- have a small footprint so it can run off a RAM disk even on older PCs or netbooks
- be boot from mobile media like CD and be installable to hard drive as well
- be persistent when run off a writeable medium like an USB stick
- have minimal boot time
- support modern hardware (especially nVidia, AMD and Intel graphics cards)
- be reasonably secure out of the box
- support ARM
- feature guest install inside Windows
It should not
- be a general purpose OS. You can check your emails with something else.
We might take SliTaz
as a platform.
