Please note, the Skeleton GNU/Linux project is now intended to be one of the four distributions (stros) of gNewSense 10. The original website is preserved for historical purposes.

What is Skeleton GNU/Linux?

A 'stro of GNU/Linux for 'cees. All free software. Limited number of packages available, just the essentials: GIMP, Emacs, Inkscape, VLC, GNOME, Firefox, Blender, git, xeyes. Our message is simple: no bones about it.

Why not gNewSense? Trisquel? PureOS?

They're all fine projects of their own, and old Skelly is based on Debian. But we also believe in a focused set of packages, like Bruce Perens' UserLinux project.

Get involved, join the discussion early. Skeleton discussion list. Code at GitLab.
