Mary Distro Review
Blink and you’ll miss this linux distributation. That’s beause it is small….really small….12.7MB small. This week’s review is of Nano Linux. And that’s the end of my review! Just kidding.
Actually Nano Linux is based on MicroCore Linux (and TinyCore) It uses BusyBox. For those of you who may not be compeltely aware Busybox is a utility set that combines tiny versions of many common UNIX utilities (with far fewer options) into a single small executable.
Name: Nano Linux
Maintainer: Project Team
Distro Latest Birthday: 11/28/13
Review Desktop: None but uses the Nano-X Window system
Nano Linux starts at a boot prompt with the option to user three function keys. Each presents a set of boot parameters. I decided to go with the defaults.
The second thing I noticed about Nano Linux is its boot speed. I timed it—in 8 seconds I had a graphical desktop—with icons. Nano Linux uses Nano-X instead of X11. FLTK 1.3.x is used as the GUI toolkit. The window manager is the Slim Window Manager (SLWM). Did we really expect anything else?
I usually check what graphics and wireless modules were loaded to the kernal. Nano Linux has no wireless module but handled a wired network connection with no problem. I was able to successfully browse to web sites,etc., which brings me to the defaults:
Office Suite: FIWriter
Mail Client: None
File Manager: Fluff File Manager (also the default in TinyCore Linux).
Nano Linux’s desktop contained a small grid of icons in the upper left corner. This was in lieu of a traditional menu/launcher. Nano had a “Start” button but it only contains four options: Settings (Keyboard, internet connection), Search Program Files (opens a search box), Run Program (opens a search box), and Power Off.
The Install Process:
Nano Linux did not have an install method. However it can be saved to usb and booted from there.
1.8 Nano Linux is a pared-down, bare-bones Linux distro. A little more so than I prefer. Much like tiny core, it contains the basics, but unlike Tiny Core– Nano Linux lacks a user community and that may be due to its relative newness…and nano-ness. There wasn’t anything that distinguished Nano Linux from the other micro distros, that would make me say, wow

KDE Release Candidate of Applications and Platform 4.12
Project Neon5 Retiring Support for 13.04
Project Neon5 – the most awesome daily builds of KDE Frameworks 5 – is moving the distribution targets forward one release, making Kubuntu 13.10 and upcoming 14.04 the supported versions. Support for Kubuntu 13.04 will be discontinued shortly.
“Tree View” improvements – and bug fixes (samba share bug)
Reduced memory consumption – Degreee of reduction depends on the number of files in the current folder, the view mode, and some other factors. For large folders, it is not uncommon to see a 30% reduction
Preparations for porting to KDE Frameworks
There is no KDE Framworks port of Dolphin yet, but a few changes were made to make the porting easier
