Lightweight, portable and flexible operating system
alphaOS is a simple and minimalistic Linux distribution for the x86-64 architecture, built using Linux Live Kit set of scripts developed by Tomáš Matějíček, the developer of the popular Slax Linux distribution. But, unlike Slax, alphaOS is based on Arch Linux and uses pacman as the default package manager. This operating system features highly configurable and lightweight Openbox window manager. Modular by design, alphaOS makes it easy to add desired functionality.
