CRUX

Last Update: 2019-06-12 03:01 UTC


CRUX is a lightweight, Linux distribution for computers running on 64-bit x86 and ARM processors. The distribution is 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.

Popularity (hits per day): 12 months: 129 (75), 6 months: 107 (106), 3 months: 164 (48), 4 weeks: 142 (51), 1 week: 119 (60)

Average visitor rating: 9.56/10 from 9 review(s).

Table Notes and Explanations

(Please refer to the table below.)
  • Select view: Major packages only (52) All tracked packages (226)
  • To compare the software in this project to the software available in other distributions, please see our Compare Packages page.
  • Notes: In case where multiple versions of a package are shipped with a distribution, only the default version appears in the table. For indication about the GNOME version, please check the "nautilus" and "gnome-shell" packages. The Apache web server is listed as "httpd" and the Linux kernel is listed as "linux". The KDE desktop is represented by the "plasma-desktop" package and the Xfce desktop by the "xfdesktop" package.
  • Colour scheme: green text = latest stable version, red text = development or beta version. The function determining beta versions is not 100% reliable due to a wide variety of versioning schemes.

Simple and flexible package system, the community is good. You get the sources and ports are build instructions. Not fully "libre" distribution, it uses linux with blobs not linux-gnu.

One minus for absence of package/port with kernel, second for absence of musl libc support.

The best distribution of those that I used.
I like it simplicity of the internal structure.
This distribution uses a minimum of astractions.
It is like assembly language between high-level languages.
The K.I.S.S principle is most supported in it. CRUX always strives for simplicity. I used a lot of distros: Ubuntu, Mint, Lubuntu, Gentoo, Slackware, Freebsd.
But everywhere there was a wall of abstractions in front of me: I did not understand what I was doing. CRUX transparent as glass. I use it longer than any other distribution. If you want to understand the very essence of Linux, I advise you to use this particular distribution. My rating is 11/10 :)
