Debris Linux (previously: BeaFanatIX, BFX) – a minimalist Linux distribution based on Ubuntu with GNOME as a default desktop. The ISO image file is about 200 MB in size and works as a Live CD, with a hard drive installation option.
After the missing of Steven Watsky (maker of BeatrIX) the community fell apart. Stephan Emmerich wanted to continue the project, but since this was no longer possible with BeatrIX, he decided to make a new distro, based on BeatrIX, called BeaFanatIX. This was later renamed to Debris Linux.
Debris offers GNOME and Openbox, a lightweight session powered only by the Openbox window manager or a traditional session with GNOME and Metacity.

– Mozilla Firefox – a web browser
– Beep – a mediaplayer
– AbiWord – a text processor
– Gnumeric – a spreadsheet program
– Evolution – an e-mail client
– Pidgin multi-protocol instant messenger.
