alphaOS (formerly ArchPup) is an open source, lightweight and minimalistic Linux distribution based on the Arch Linux operating system.

It was build using the Linux Live Kit project created by Tomas Matejicek, the developer of the popular Slax Linux distribution.

It is a minimalistic distro that gives you full access to the Arch Linux’s default software repositories, and supports over 20 additional SFS modules, which are used in distributions like Puppy Linux.

alphaOS is a simple and minimalistic Linux distribution for the x86-64 architecture, built using Linux Live Kit set of scripts developed by Tomáš Matějíček, the developer of the popular Slax Linux distribution.

But, unlike Slax, alphaOS is based on Arch Linux and uses pacman as the default package manager.

This operating system features highly configurable and lightweight Openbox window manager. Modular by design, alphaOS makes it easy to add desired functionality.
