This thread is for posting brief introductions (as in "hey, this exists.") to relatively unknown GNU/Linux distros. Stuff that you don't find listed on Wikipedia, DistroWatch, etc. I would suggest we keep the thread clear of discussion, much like the "cheesemakers-linux corner" thread is, so that it is easier to browse the actual list of distros, but that's not my call to make.
I guess I'll start....
Jinx is light-weight small GNU/Linux distro for older hardware with little RAM. The project seems long dead. According to the project's SourceForge page, it was last updated in 2013, but the most recent (and only?) release is from 2007. So, the software is quite outdated, meaning you'd be open to security vulnerabilites since discovered, but depending on what you are using the OS for, that may or may not be a concern. Jinx is available as a live CD, mini live CD, VMware virtual machine image, and hard disk image. The project is quite unknown. The latest mini live CD ISO has 5,460 total ever downloads, which is significantly more than the other download options.
The Jinx live CD is 32bit (x86-32, i686), which isn't a surprise given that Jinx is for older hardware, and runs kernel version 2.6.9. The download weighs in at only 42.3MB. It boots with a screen depth of 8 bits, presumibly for compatibility with older hardware, but you can increase it if your system supports it. There isn't much pre-installed, but among the pre-installed programs are: Bash 2.05b (shell), Opera 8.5 (web browser), TextMaker (word processor), GTK See 0.6.0 Beta (image viewer), mPlayer (video player). The live CD does not present an option to save changes made to it, nore to install Jinx.
