Vincent Danen: Yet Another Secure Linux Distro.. why?

Filed under
Linux

On IRC last night I was pointed to a new secure linux distro... this one simply called Hardened Linux. The individual whom I was speaking with ("Intensity") was wondering why there needed to be YASLD (Yet Another Secure Linux Distro). Interested, I was reading through the page to see if there was anything unique... you know, something no other secure distro offered that might give it some appeal.

Well, about the only thing I can see that would make this thing any more interesting than any others is that this one is based on Slackware. AFAIK, there is no other hardened distro out there based on Slackware. They also seem to be working on some custom configuration (web-based) tools. Well, that seems par for the course, doesn't it?

Peppermint 7 Released

Peppermint 7 launched a few days ago. Peppermint is a lightweight Ubuntu-based Linux distribution with an emphasis on speed and simplicity. Although the name is similar to Linux Mint, the projects aren't directly related. Peppermint originally was envisioned as a "spicier" alternative to Mint—whatever that means! Many distros come with a wide assortment of feature-rich applications, and that's great for power users who need those apps. But older machines can struggle to cope with those demanding distros. Peppermint solves the problem by offering a carefully curated suite of web apps that perform tasks traditionally handled by native apps. It's an approach that will be familiar to any Chromebook users reading this article. Read more
