NimbleX distrbution is a small but versatile operating system which is able to boot mainly from a small 8 cm CD but also from flash memory like Mp3 players and USB pens.

Because it runs entirely from a CD or USB it doesn't require installation or even a hard drive. NimbleX is based on Slackware with the use of linux-live scripts and is has a lot of this distribution advantages.

One of them is the availability of thousands of free software that can be found in the form of packages.

The beauty of it is that even if is small it has a beautiful graphical interface and also a lot of built in software for browsing the internet, writing documents, listening to music, playing movies and many more.


First of all, because of the small size you can always carry it on yourself and use it as your mobile OS everywhere you want for the things that where mentioned above and many more.

Because it has the ability to automatically detect and mount all the partitions you can access data on any another computers with ought even knowing the password, both on Linux and Windows.

Now you can use it as a recovery disk or for any other purpose. Because of the low requirements you can run it on old computers as a server. NimbleX is very customizable and can be made easily to satisfy your needs.
