Loc-OS and Cereus Linux: Alternatives and interesting respins of antiX and MX

Many who read us every day, will have appreciated that for some very practical topics we usually use a Independent respin created with MX Linux 19 called Miracles. Which has among many purposes or objectives, being ideal for modern equipment (64 Bit), of few or many resources.

And since, "Miracles" It does not come and will not come for low-income teams, today we want to publicize other 2 independent respines, that if they are for low-income teams and their names are "Loc-OS" y "Cereus Linux".

About the Respines of antiX and MX Linux

Before I jump right in on "Loc-OS" y "Cereus Linux", for those who might not be clear, that it is a respin and what is he Respin Miracles, we will immediately leave these concepts below and some links to some previous publications related to them:

"Understand Respin, a bootable (live) and installable ISO image that can be used as a restore point, storage medium and / or re-distributable GNU / Linux Distribution, among other uses. And that is built from an ISO or installation of an existing GNU / Linux Distro. In the case of MX Linux, there is MX Snapshot, which is an ideal tool for this purpose, and which is a modern and efficient substitute for other old tools, such as "Remastersys and Systemback", but which only works on MX Linux ." MX Snapshot: How to create a personal and installable MX Linux Respin?

Note: antiX also has its own Snapshot tool.

"MilagrOS GNU / Linux, is an unofficial edition (Respin) of the MX-Linux Distro. Which comes with extreme customization and optimization, which makes it ideal for 64-bit computers, both low-resource or old as well as modern and high-end, and also for users with no or limited Internet potential and GNU / Linux. Once obtained (downloaded) and installed, it can be used effectively and efficiently without the need for the Internet, since everything you need and more is pre-installed".

Note: This Respin is developed by the Tic Tac Project website and for more information about it, you can directly explore the following link.

Why a Respin and not a normal Distro?

Among the many reasons we can mention:

  1. They are usually created by passionate and experienced Linuxeros individually or collectively, to satisfy a particular need, based on any GNU / Linux Distro known and used by the Community. In these particular cases, the GNU / Linux antiX and MX Distros.
  2. They try to minimize the use of the internet and deep or advanced knowledge to carry out a successful installation on different types of computers, in order to reduce the cost of hours / labor in the implementation (installation process, configuration and optimization) of operating systems, favoring the uniformity of the installations carried out.
  3. They give a certain sense of belonging to Linux communities or groups that are not usually so globally known.

What is Loc-OS?

What is Loc-OS?

According to official website of «Loc-OS» This independent Respin is described as follows:

"It is a GNU / Linux distribution created by a Urugayo who lives in Brazil. This distribution is intended to be a lightweight and complete distro at the same time, thus being able to revive very old equipment. There is a 32-bit version, especially for computers with 1GB of RAM and there is also another 64-bit version, especially for machines with 2GB of RAM or more.

Many people still have a PC with very low resources and with Loc-Os Linux you can give it another chance before it becomes electronic waste. Loc-OS is not a "Linux from scratch" distro, but is a re-spin of Antix 19.4. Antix is ​​based on Debian, so Loc-OS at its core is a complete and functional Debian 10 Buster with LXDE but without systemd."

For more information on "Loc-OS"apart from his Official website, the following can be explored link with much more information directly provided by the independent Respin Developer.

What is Cereus Linux?

What is Cereus Linux?

According to official website of «Cereus Linux» This independent Respin is described as follows:

"Cereus Linux is an operating system based on MX Linux & Debian 10 Buster (respin) With the default XFCE desktop environment and kernel 4.19.0-12-686-pae for 32-bit machines and 4.19.0-12-amd64 for 64-bit computers. In addition, it tries to be a functional operating system for the user, with the minimum number of programs that a user requires for the day to day, plus a strong base with long-term support.

And finally, it seeks to be an operating system with medium / low requirements for Hardware. Our goal is to provide support and the latest versions of programs / software or software versions with extended support (LTS / ESR) for 32-bit computers to give them a second life and keep them as up-to-date as possible. At the same time, it is worth mentioning that Cereus Linux does not contain (includes) an office suite package installed by default."

Summary: Various publications

Your Order

In summary, "Loc-OS" y "Cereus Linux" sound 2 independent respines created in order to be mostly useful for low-resource or very old equipment. Which for certain groups of people or countries can be really useful. For above all, mitigate the effects of planned obsolescence of many computer equipment. Caused by incompatibility with modern, proprietary, closed and commercial Operating Systems and Applications, and some modern GNU / Linux Distros.

We hope that this publication will be very useful for the entire «Comunidad de Software Libre y Código Abierto» and of great contribution to the improvement, growth and diffusion of the ecosystem of applications available for «GNU/Linux».

    I prefer using bunsenlabs to those respines.

      Greetings, Debianuser. Thank you for your comment and contribution. I think that the aforementioned respines are small and humble alternatives that have a very particular purpose for a small handful of very specific users. They are not a total or definitive replacement solution to any particular GNU / Linux Distro, and even less for large Distros such as Debian, Ubuntu, Mint or Bunsenlabs.

    Thanks for the reviews, until last week I was doing tests on a very modest team of resources and Devuan was left with an Openbox, but seeing the screenshot of Loc-Os (and note that it derives from Antix -without Systemd-), I will try it , and what better than coming from a compadre from the country.
