About Bluewhite Llinux (Probably The Best Pure 64-bit Linux)
The standard version of Bluewhite Linux is a complex, reliable, scalable open source pure 64-bit Linux distribution that runs on single and multicore AMD64 Sempron, Athlon, Opteron, Turion, Phenom I/II, and Intel EM64T servers and workstations.
This project was started in May 2006 and was built from Slackware -current sources using the existing 64-bit multilib toolchain from the Slamd64 Linux (thanks Fred!) to create a new 64-bit non-multilib toolchain in order to build the rest of the programs.
Apart from the standard edition there are live versions, namely LiveDVD and miniLive. These versions have their base root in the standard edition and offer extra packages created by the Bluewhite Linux community . The purpose of these live versions is to serve as a preview to those who wish to try the standard edition but don't want to install it yet, as well as providing some new features.
Bluewhite Linux LiveDVD and miniLive are targeted toward beginners. A new distribution tends to make people skeptical, so I wanted to give them a chance to test Bluewhite Linux without installing it by using a bootable media. They include Bluewhite Linux standard edition plus some extra packages.
The miniLive version was born because some users wanted a smaller Live edition and to satisfy my own curiosity. I wanted to see how much I could strip down a 64-bit operating system while providing a minimum of software packages. 64-bit packages are somewhat larger than the 32-bit versions of the same software.
I'd like to Thanks to Patrick J. Volkerding, Robby Workman, Eric Hameleers, Piter Punk for their work on the Slackware Linux. Also, thanks to all others who send reports, patches, suggestions, fixes to the Slackware team. Thank You All!
