Kondara MNU/Linux – a Linux distribution based on the Red Hat Linux and is precompiled for Pentium or Alpha systems.
The main focus of Kondara MNU/Linux appears to be on creating an open source distribution that supports Japanese and places heavy emphasis on graphics.
Kondara comes in two versions: one that is aimed at desktop systems and another that is aimed at server systems. This clearly shows that a Linux system can work equally well as desktop workstation, server or both at once.
Kondara MNU/Linux includes a separate applications CD-ROM, packed with RPM packages, along with Sun’s StarOffice 5.2. As in most RPM packages, there are separate directories for i586 (Intel), Alpha, and noarch (short for no architecture) for packages not specific to any architecture.
The “MNU” is an expression of a sound made when you touch a penguin, and is derived from “Mount is Not Umount”.
The project was under development between 1999 and 2002.
