Many Linux distributions seek to be all-around systems, fulfilling the user's every desire on the desktop. The 4MLinux distro offers feature-oriented variants without the bulk.
Lean Linux distros for older hardware are a dime a dozen. Mostly, however, they offer only limited functionality because, instead of the usual standard programs, they come with less capable alternatives.
4MLinux  takes a completely different approach: The project divides the distribution into six different variants that cover different software priorities and thus avoids unnecessary ballast. Additionally, a Multiboot edition allows users to install four of the best-known Linux distributions retrospectively.
4MLinux takes its name from the focal points of its four variants: Maintenance (system rescue and maintenance), Miniserver, Multimedia, and Mystery (games). On top of this, an all-in-one edition combines all of these variants under one umbrella.
