CruxEX 3.0 2014 64bit Linux Live USB is based on CRUX 3.0 (latest version, released 130119), which is all Linux enthusiasts/nerds favorite OS. (CRUX 3.0 is a lightweight Linux distribution for the x86-64 architecture targeted at experienced Linux users). CruxEX 3.0 2014 uses the LXDE Desktop environment. I have replaced the original CRUX kernel 3.6.11 with “my” special kernel 3.12.6-x86_64-exton, with support for “extra everything”.
Kernel 3.12.6 is the latest available stable kernel as of 140108. Among all installed applications are Firefox 26.0, Gimp 2.8.10 and Wicd. Furthermore compilation tools so that you can install programs from source.
A. KISS (Keep It Simple, Stupid) concept, applied to both the system and the development process.
B. CruxEX/CRUX is targetted at experienced users who don’t mind doing some work themselves, so if you’re an completely new to Linux-based operation systems or want a zero-effort distribution, CruxEX/CRUX is not the optimal choice.
C. Having said A and B I must also say that CruxEX is very easy to install to hard drive and/or a USB pen drive. Takes about 5 min.
