The Kurumin project has announced the release of Kurumin Light 7.0, a mini-CD edition of the Brazilian distribution based on Debian GNU/Linux. Kurumin Light comes on only 182 MB, but includes the full KDE desktop with Konqueror and Kaffeine, the Kurumin-specific magic icons and all the custom scripts. Compared to the standard edition, it lacks some of the larger applications, such as OpenOffice.org and Java, and it also comes without support for scanners and 3D acceleration. Kurumin Light can be used as a live CD, but a hard disk installation script is also available for those who wish to give it a permanent space on their hard disk.
Kurumin Linux is a Brazilian run-from-CD Linux distribution based on Knoppix. Its main features are excellent hardware auto-detection, support for Brazilian Portuguese and small size.
