Project Description

Miyo - is simply an acronym for "make it your own". Primarily intended for users with older hardware, MiyoLinux is a very minimal and base system that allows users the freedom to add the software and applications that they want or need without having to remove the ones that they don't want. It's the user's choice to decide what goes on the system in order to make it their own. Based on Devuan and by utilizing Window Managers instead of full Desktop Environments, the system is ideal for (but not limited to) older computers with limited resources.

Please do not submit MiyoLinux to DistroWatch. MiyoLinux is a personal project.

The software is provided "as is", without warranty of any kind, express or implied, including but not limited to the warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose and noninfringement. In no event shall the authors or copyright holders be liable for any claim, damages or other liability, whether in an action of contract, tort or otherwise, arising from, out of or in connection with the software or the use or other dealings in the software.

System Requirements

1 GB RAM recommended for better performance.
32 bit versions use the PAE kernel.
PLEASE NOTE: There are no Virtualbox Guest Additions installed in MiyoLInux.

Spinning this on my HP Mini. Runs perfect. Great job Dan.
Lean. Runs great on my very old hardware.
None. If you're a noob, watch the install vid on youtube.

Did a miyolinux Debian installation this morning on my 13-year old esprimo mobile v5535 i never used jwm before but getting used to it now what i like most in the fact comes with just enough boot into a desk top and thats it
small system and it uses and works well on very little resources
Maybe I'm not used to JWM desktop but out of the box i don't find it very configurable i sure i could be but i need to learn more

Very light and stable distro. Recommend to everyone. Can be used as daily driver.
No bloat at all.
