ConnochaetOS – a fully free/libre GNU/Linux distribution for x86 computers with limited resources, based on Slackware and Salix OS. It contains no proprietary software or firmware, honours the KISS principle and is targeted for desktop use.

ConnochaetOS is available as an installable CD media, which lets users install the system on a hard dive via text based installer.
The installer offers users choosing teh installation mode:
– full – installs the core system, X Server, IceWM window manager and a set of lightweight applications for any purpose
– base – installs the core system, X Server, IceWM window manager and a web browser
– core – installs the core system only (no X)

ConnochaetOS is the successor of DeLi Linux which is not under development any more.
The development of ConnochaetOS started in 2010 and was based on Arch Linux, until 2012.
After 3 years of break about, the developer released a new version 14.1 based on Slackware and Salix OS, which was full free of the proprietary components. It was the last version of ConnochaetOS too.

ConnochaetOS is targeted to x86 old machines, but uses the Linux kernel for i686 CPU.

In June 2011, the developer Henry Jensen started a new project called “Deli(cate) Linux” which is a successor of ConnochaetOS and DeLi Linux.
