xPUD is an unique Linux distribution, consisting mainly of a web browser and a media player, with a simple user interface on top. It can turn your computer into a kiosk-like station by leveraging web technologies, making surfing and watching movies as easy as pie.
It’s fast, on average booting within 10 seconds and it’s small, too. Core image is weighing in at under 35MB, yet it still remains binary compatible with most major Linux distributions like Ubuntu or Fedora. So xPUD can not only be a great platform to deliver Web Apps, but it’s also suitable for use on Netbooks or All-in-one PCs.
the main goals in this project:
- lightweight and fast booting
- applications for daily use
- easy-to-use user interface
