ZincLinux™ is a re-spin of MX Linux™, the most full-featured lightweight
Debian Linux distibution. Our unique applications and customizations are
subtle, but they add to your convenience, control, and capability.

To paraphrase the creator of Linux, Linus Torvalds, “An operating system
should be easy to install and use, and gets out of the way so I can do
what I need.”

  • Apps for: Casual web surfers, writers, artists, developers, videophiles
    • (everything but games. Go ahead and install Steam too, if you want!)
