wattOS – a lightweight Linux distribution based on Ubuntu, targeted to users of “old” computers. The system uses a very lightweight pekwm window manager by default, while maintaining good functionality of the entire system. wattOS with pekwm (microwatt) desktop is available for 32 bit machines.

The developer also offers two versions of the distribution with LXDE and MATE desktops.
Both are available for 32 and 64 bit machines.

As of R8 released in May 2014, wattOS has been ported from Ubuntu to Debian of the stable branch. “Microwatt” desktop has been changed from Pekwm to Openbox.

wattOS R9 is back based on Ubuntu and the microwatt version comes with the i3 window manager.

1 thought on “wattOS”

  1. I’m currently running wattOS-R12 as a VM in GNOME Boxes on Debian 11. It’s incredibly snappy ans is far better than the wattOS from years back. I’m glad that they moved from being Ubuntu-based to being Debian (Stable)-based.
