Frankie Linux is a minimal but powerful distribution of Slackware GNU Linux. Frankie Linux is base on the technology from a famous compact distribution named CD-Linux. It is small in size, yet rich in features.
You can use Frankie Linux as your “Mobile/Pocket OS”. Install it onto a USB key, take it anywhere and turn any PC/Mac that supports booting from USB to your own workstation, with the same user interface. Frankie Linux ships with an up-to-date version of the Linux kernel, Xorg, Xfce, and many popular applications, like Firefox, Pidgin, GIMP, and even Java and Wine. Just work anywhere like at home.
You can also use Frankie Linux as a handy admin/rescue tool. For this purpose, the much smaller “standard” edition is enough. The standard edition bundled with a lot of popular admin/rescue tools, like parted, partimage, partclone, testdisk, foremost, ext3grep, e2undel, e2fs/jfs/hfs/ntfs/reiserfs/vfat/xfs tools, and much more. Enough for your routine admin/rescue work.
