4MLinux mini-distribution


4MLinux provides an extremely versatile and capable operating system that can be used on virtually any hardware because of its flexible concept. The resource-saving variants typically have a specific software focus and do not distract the user with unnecessary ballast.

In addition to these primarily desktop-targeted versions, the Multiboot and the Rescue images also offer tools for system administrators. For example, the Multiboot system lets you quickly install four major, third-party distributions, whereas the Rescue edition offers the most important tools for data recovery in a heterogeneous operating system environment.
