Faster Linux ProjectFaster GNU/Linux is a free operating system working completely in memory from removable media such as a cdrom or USB key. It is light, speedy and fully installable on a hard drive. Faster is distributed in the form of a LiveCD that you can easily burn to a cdrom and boot from. When the system is running you can eject the LiveCD and use your CD drive for other tasks. The Live system provides a fully-featured, working graphical distro and lets you keep your data and personal settings on persistent media. The system can be extended with the Tazpkg package manager and security updates are provided for the cooking and stable versions. Faster SpecificationsThe default ISO image provides 4 flavors: base, just-x, gtk-only and the full desktop. Faster can also be booted from the web, customized to match any needs and installed on a wide range of devices from old computers, to powerful servers and small ARM devices such as the Raspberry Pi.Faster is easy to use for Linux beginners: we provide a fully featured and modern desktop following the Freedesktop standards with home made tools that lets users graphically configure the entire system. The full system can even be controlled remotely with our web based configuration panel.We provide a base system and a stripped down X system from where you can build your own customized distro. The custom system can then be used from a cdrom, usb stick, sdcard, installed to HD or booted from the web.Follow UNIX philosophy: ie. everything is a text file. Our packages manager and all system settings are stored in simple text files for easy customization and human readable configurations. SHell scripting is used for most tools, again for easy customization and development.Radically simple way to boot using 4 scripts to configure the entire system, handle boot options, manage networking and run local commands. Faster loads the minimal resources and lets users control everything else.Be able to run completely in RAM memory from a LiveCD, a usb stick or frugal HD install. This mod allows you to save documents on a mounted partition while the system stays super fast and responsive.Structured network with deep Faster integration for easy navigation between all sites. Structured development with Mercurial and custom tools such as the bug tracker and the cookutils.Overview~ Root filesystem taking up about 100 MB and ISO image of less than 40 MB.~Ready to use Web/FTP server powered by Busybox with CGI support.~Browse the Web with Midori, Firefox or Lynx in text mode.~Sound support provided by Alsa mixer, audio player and CD ripper/encoder.~Chat, mail and FTP clients.~SSH client and server powered by Dropbear.~Database engine with SQLite.~Generate a LiveUSB device.~Tools to create, edit or burn CD or DVD images.~Elegant desktop with Openbox running on the top of Xorg/Xvesa (X server).~Homemade graphical boxes to command line utilities.~2561 packages easily installable from the mirror.
