Stampede Linux – an independent Linux distribution developed by the Stampede Linux Foundation. Stampede is a remarkable new approach to Linux distributions. Ironically enough, in a world of so many Linux distributions that claim to do everything under the sun, it seems that none really exist that are designed to both perform tasks and maintain speed and reliability. Furthermore, most Linux distributions make too many compromises, whether it be sacrificing functionality to deliver ease of use, or vice versa, Stampede aims to take the middle road.

Stampede Linux was created on December 4th, 1997. This date holds significance as it is the birthday of Stampede Linux’s founder, Matt Wood. The distribution was named after Matt’s personal domain, which he created 6 months before work began on Stampede Linux. He decided to work on Stampede out of his frustration with the present distributions, since none of them could adequately fulfill his needs. Although Matt doesn’t actively work in the distribution today, we still continue on in the original spirit of the project, and he is available as an advisor when necessary.
