- CRUX is a lightweight, i686-optimized Linux distribution targeted at
experienced Linux users. The primary focus of this distribution is
"keep it simple", which is reflected in a simple tar.gz-based package
system, BSD-style initscripts, and a relatively small collection of
trimmed packages. The secondary focus is utilization of new Linux
features and recent tools and libraries. CRUX also has a ports system
which makes it easy to install and upgrade applications.
