Leeenux is a light weight Linux distribution based on Ubuntu Netbook Remix. It takes up just 1.2GB of disk space and has a user interface that’s designed for netbooks with screens as small as 7 inches. In other words, it plays well with first generation Asus Eee PC models.
Last time I checked in on Leenux was a few months ago. But the developer just sent me a note to let me know that Leenux has been updated from version 1.3 to version 2.0. The latest update brings a number of new applications including Firefox 3.7 beta, Thunderbird and Lightning for calendar, email, and contact management, and a number of emulators for old school Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis games. Because you know, when you’ve only got a limited amount of storage space and screen real estate, old school gaming is the way to go. Or something like that.
You can grab Leeenux 2.0 from the project download page.
