The last version | Released: 1.3 | December 9, 2014

Carolina – a fork of the Saluki project. Saluki is a woof-build based on Racy 5.2 with Xfce.

The suggested target hardware are computers less than 5 years old. It should run reasonably fast on older machines and netbooks, but Xfce does need a bit more ram and cpu than the standard ROX/Jwm puppy – probably at least 512MB of ram and 1GHz CPU for decent performance.

Carolina Beta 0.01 was release October 5, 2012 and the latest version 1.3 was released in December 2014.

Caos Linux – an independent, RPM based Linux distribution developed by the CAOS Foundation. The CAOS Linux Project was first initated because of the need for an openly managed, RPM based version of Linux. CAOS NSA (Node, Server, Appliance) pursues the “sweet spot” concept for a Linux distribution.

CAOS Linux is designed to run on all x86_64 and i386 based hardware ranging from clusters and servers to production level appliances to personal desktops and laptops. Scientific research labs, public agencies, ISP’s, private enterprise, virtualization and cloud computing ventures will find CAOS Linux to be an integral component to their operation.

CAOS NSA focuses on being a lightweight, fast, efficient, stable, and secure distribution of Linux that is appropriate for servers, compute nodes, network appliances, and even the latest desktop and laptop computers.

Supporting a wide variety of software, CAOS Linux is based on the best aspects of GNU/Linux and has full binary compatibility with the most popular enterprise distribution of Linux.

The CAOS Linux installer would be found easy to use by both an experienced admin or a Linux newcomer. Users can either have a fully automated install (including HD partitioning) or they can take full control from the install prompt. The automated CAOS Linux installer, Cinch, is a very user friendly, written from scratch and open to use by other distributions. Your CAOS system has the advantage of grabbing the latest packages from our online repository during installation, guaranteeing your system is up to date. Post-installation configuration is simple through either Sidekick, our server administration Swiss Army Knife, manually, or via the web using an industry compatible webmin tool.
