The Linux Distribution Finnix, named after its inventor Ryan Finnie, has appeared in version 122. Above all, the update includes error corrections, but also has a few new features on board.
As before, Finnix addresses administrators who require a slim but still functional mini system for maintenance of other Linux systems. This is the distribution in direct competition to similar products such as Grml. Like this FINNIX on Debian Gnu / Linux, unlike the live images of the gross model, but with significantly slimmer package selection is therefore. On top of that, Finnix charges almost its entire content in the RAM when booting, which brings gross benefits to the topic of speed. Other distributions use this option only if the admin specifies it explicitly.
The Performance Screw has been obviously in great importance for the Finnix creators in the new version 122. If Finnix was still optimized for the booting of CDs, even USB sticks can also be used. The FINNIX images for these are not only better in version 122 more easily with ages, but the system starts from the USB stick even flotter than its transactions. In the packet selection, Finnix 122 is once more than economical: some hardly used package is no longer a long part of Finnix, which significantly reduces the size of the ISO images of the distribution.
