What is ConnochaetOS?

ConnochaetOS is a fully free/libre GNU/Linux distro for x86 computers with limited resources, based on Slackware and Salix OS. “Fully free” means, that ConnochaetOS does only contain free software and no proprietary, non-free software, blobs or firmware. Non-free parts of the upstream distros were removed and - where possible - replaced by free counterparts. ConnochaetOS retains full backwards compatibility with Slackware and Salix OS.

Technically ConnochaetOS follows the KISS principle (which means no systemd, for example). The repo consists of a Slackware and Salix repo mirror, except the non-free parts, plus the slack-n-free repo (see below) which includes ConnOS-specific packages and free/libre replacements for non-free Packages in the upstream distros.

The versioning will follow the Slack/Salix versioning scheme to make things easier. So the current ConnochaetOS is version 14.1
