SaxenOS – a Linux live distribution especially targeted to older hardware.
It offers complete office, multimedia and internet applications on one CD.
The hardware system requirements are quite low, such as Pentium 2 350 MHz CPU, 128 MB RAM and a 2 GB harddisk.
An older version of the distribution supported the i486 platform and used the LXDE desktop environment.
The distribution was a derivative of Zenwalk Linux, and thus Slackware.
Version 1.0 was launched on January 9, 2006.
SaxenOS 2008/2009 is based on PCLinuxOS, with RPM packages and Synaptic package manager as default. It features the full OpenOffice package, multimedia apps and games on the top of the XFCE desktop.
The project developer is Michael Stibane.
