NuTyX 15.05: Child of Linux From Scratch


NuTyX is not just fast but frugal in its use of resources. With the existing collection of packages, it is definitely a useful choice for less powerful machines. The Cards package manager, is very easy to handle compared with many other distributions.

The only points of criticism are a lack of localization and a few rough edges on the installer. At run time, NuTyX proves stable and mature, so it is definitely a serious alternative to other lean distributions. A growing community of users will probably soon help resolve the current functional deficits.
