What's Berry Linux ?

Berry Linux is a lightweight, lightning-fast operating system with good design and usability. It can boot from the CD-ROM / USB drive / USB-HDD / HDD. The strong points are to start quickly, to recognize much hardware automatically, and to be able to connected to the Internet.
You can use the Internet safely because this operating system is little catching viruses. Including to play the DVD (kaffeine, xine, mplayer), you can enjoy music (audacious), pictures, and the image editing (GIMP, inkscape). Berry Linux lays emphasis on Japanese environment, various fonts and a good input engine.
It aims at the next generation operating system and is using new technology. It is Fedora and a Chrome OS base.
