A minimalistic Linux distribution that can run OpenGL-based applications without X is now available from New Zealand based hacker Zeljko "Zelko" Aksentijevic. Zelko said his "MyOS Miniature OpenGL development system" shows that Linux development systems can be simple.
Zelko said MyOS has been "stripped down of everything, but core necessary files to compile and run OpenGL/C code." It is distributed as a 12.8MB ISO image, and fits on a 1.44MB floppy disk when OpenGL development tools are removed, according to Zelko.
Zelko said MyOS offers "really all one needs to learn OpenGL." Additionally, applications written on MyOS can run on "any Linux," he said.
