The last version | Released: Lithinum | February 17, 2013
Elemental (The Elemental Linux Server (ELS)) – designed from the outset to be a minimal, no-frills server distribution.
There is no GUI, everything is console-based. There is no package manager, packages are installed from .tar.gz files. There is no administration tool, all configuration is done by manually editing files in the /etc directory.
There is also very little bloat in the ELS distribution.
ELS will easily install on the vintage 1998 Pentium II computer that’s sitting in your basement collecting dust. Don’t throw it out, reanimate it as a home file server or a personal web server.
The project founder is David Horton.
