| distribution developed and maintained by the 
| ALT Linux Team (ALT is recursive for ALT Linux 
| Team). It was originally based on Mandrake (now 
| Mandriva) Linux. There are two main development 
| branches, âALT Linux 5.0 Ark, a suite designed 
| for making integrated solutions, and ALT Linux 
| 5.0 School, a suite that is targeted at 
| secondary and high schools.â Within the ALT 
| Linux 5.0 Ark branch, there is a desktop 
| version, and a server version. This review is

| Google may think that the most important 
| application for any operating system is a web 
| browser. But while Googleâs approach is to 
| build an entire OS around the browser, others 
| have taken a simpler approach. BrowserLinux, 
| for instance, is basically a stripped down, 
| Linux-based operating system designed to run 
| just a few programs including a file manager, 
| audio player, and Firefox 3.5.5.
