Semplice Linux, An Exercise in Simplicity

Filed under
Linux

Semplice Linux is a very young project that has only recently made its debut on Distrowatch with Release Candidate 1 for their upcoming 2.0 code-named 'Emily' getting listed. This means there must be a support structure in place, a website, bug tracker, documentation and user forum.

Images are available in 32-bit for i486 and also for the 64-bit x86_64 architecture.
