Kuki Linux (pronounced "cookie") was a lightweight Ubuntu based distribution that was active in 2008 and 2009. It was created to be a replacement for the Fedora based Linpus Linux distribution bundled with the Acer Aspire One with the aim of being lightweight, fast, and optimized for netbooks. Like Ubuntu, Kuki Linux was free software.
Kuki Linux was developed as a replacement for the Linpus Operating System installed on the Linux variant of the Acer Aspire One. Kuki's aims included backwards compatibility with Ubuntu, to make optimal use of the netbook's hardware, and to provide an intuitive user interface.
Kuki Linux's key aim was to deliver full hardware compatibility with the Acer Aspire One without additional configuration or modification. It used the Xfce desktop environment.
Kuki Linux Custom Kernel
The Kuki Linux Kernel contained driver modules chosen to make it work better with the Acer Aspire One's hardware.
