Hackaday just lately shared some ideas on “purpose-built” distros:
Some examples are Kali for safety testing, DragonOS for software-defined radio, or Hannah Montana Linux for sure music followers.
Anybody can roll their very own Linux distribution with the fitting instruments, together with [Shadly], who just lately created one which solely masses sufficient software program to launch the 1993 traditional DOOM…. It masses the Linux kernel and the usual utilities through BusyBox, then runs fbDOOM, which is a port of the sport particularly designed to run on the Linux framebuffer with minimal dependencies. Their report consists of video of the distro booting up and taking part in Doom.
“The whole distribution is positioned right into a bootable ISO file that may be positioned on any bootable drive.”
