What is Skeleton GNU/Linux?
A 'stro of GNU/Linux for 'cees. All free software. Limited number of packages available, just the essentials: GIMP, Emacs, Inkscape, VLC, GNOME, Chromium, Blender, git, xeyes. Our message is simple: no bones about it.
Why not Debian? Trisquel? PureOS?
They're all fine projects of their own, and old Skelly is based on Debian. But we also believe in a focused set of packages, like Bruce Perens' UserLinux project.
