Olive (formerly DeadCD)- a minimalistic GNU/Linux live distribution. Olive LiveCD offers quite a good deal of new technologies, hardly witnessed ever before, as well as some of the more common pieces of software.
It’s size is approx. 110MiB, yet it allows a lot of software to be used. Olive’s whole point is to display how easy to use Linux may be, yet without losing any of the features required for heavy-duty work.
It’s also supposed to show various unusual new technologies, not widely known or accepted. Please note that Olive was, partially, built as graduation work at SPSST Panska. Once presented, a release built specifically for school will be available upon personal request.
Olive is based on Debian GNU/Linux, but it uses a custom package management tool called UniPKG.
The live CD features two lightweight window managers of your choice: Enlightenment and Fluxbox.
