Peachtree Linux is a powerful, robust, and scalable distribution of the open source Linux operating system.
Version: AtlantaPeachtree Linux is a new Linux distribution being developed by several students/former students at the Georgia Institute of Technology.
Operating System: Linux
Since it's inception in the fall of 2002, Peachtree Linux has aimed to be a small system for the seasoned Linux user. You won't find GNOME or KDE among Peachtree Linux's packages, so it might not be the system for you. There are several simple rules we try to follow:
1. No GNOME or KDE.
2. All X11 programs have their binaries, libraries, and headers installed to the /usr/X11R6 tree.
3. All configuration files are placed in /etc.
4. /bin and /lib do not exist, they are soft links to /usr/bin and /usr/lib, respectively.
5. /sbin contains statically compiled programs that can bring a system up from a cold boot, nothing more.
6. We have one program per task. We do not like distributions which offer dozens of MP3 players, or mail clients, or window managers. We do have exceptions to this rule, but we generally stick to it.
That's more or less the guiding ideas behind the distribution. It is developed in parallel on both PowerPC and i386. Work is being done to port the distribution to Alpha, PA-RISC, and MIPS platforms.
We're not out to change the world with this distribution. We just want to make a system that we like to use. If you like the sound of what we're trying to put together, then Peachtree Linux may be for you. If the ideas really don't get you excited, you may want to find another distribution.
