Feather Linux, created by Robert Sullivan, is a Knoppix-based operating system which fits in under 128 MB (while older versions were made to fit within 64 MB). It boots from either a CD or a USB flash drive, into a Fluxbox desktop environment. It has a wide range of desktop and rescue software, and can load entirely into RAM (if enough RAM is available) or be installed to a hard drive. Feather Linux contains GTK+ applications, such as AbiWord and Pidgin. Feather Linux has tried to include software that people would frequently be using on their desktop.
With its most recent release being on 2005-07-04, Feather Linux is now dormant. Feather Linux and Damn Small Linux share some common goals.
It is only available on the x86 architecture. It can run on a 486 or higher, and requires 16MB RAM to run on the console, and 24MB RAM to run the X server.
