Schillix When we checked out Schillix 0.1, the distribution was pretty bare-bones. We ran the LiveCD of the most recent Schillix version, 0.5.2. This latest release offers a GUI option and runs by default the ultra-slim twm window manager. Otherwise, Schillix doesnt seem much changed since its early days.

Schillix development appears to be on the wane: Version 0.5.2 of the distribution came out in April, and the most recent entry in the distros discussion mailing list was from July. Also, there have been no bugs reported since January.
