xPUD – ultra fast booting Linux on a stick

xpudlinux small xPUD   ultra fast booting Linux on a stick

xPUD is an ultra small Linux distro which features a web browser, media player and a simple kiosk-like interface. It boots up in around 10 seconds and weighs in at a paltry 48MB. Put it on your USB key, netbook, or wherever you want to Linux your life. Cool.

 It’s fast, on average booting within 10 seconds (demo on YouTube), and it’s small, too. Weighing in at under 48MB, yet it still remains binary compatible with most major Linux distributions like Ubuntu or Fedora. So xPUD can not only be a great platform to deliver Web Apps, but it’s also suitable for use on Netbooks or All-in-one PCs.
