Core GNU/Linux 2.0 Released!

Core is a minimal distribution of the GNU/Linux operating system designed to be the basis for a complete system constructed by the end user. A fresh installation of Core (which will take approximately 15 minutes) will boot into a console and provide the user with the tools needed to download, compile and install other applications. Core contains nothing beyond what is required to perform these tasks. Core is primarily designed for experienced Linux users, though it has found an audience with those looking to learn about the internals and operation of a Linux system.

Four years ago, on April 4, 2003, Josh Devon released Core 1.x. On May 1, 2007, the new Core development team released a fully functional beta of Core 2.0. This beta has been in constant use for development for a number of weeks, and is completely stable in that capacity.

Check out the Core GNU/Linux website and SourceForge project for more information and downloads. We look forward to your feedback and ideas on the forum or on IRC at #coredistro on irc.freenode.net.
