Firefly Linux is based on Arch Linux, Firefly is inherently small, fast, and customizable. It runs on all types of x86 hardware, with built-in Wifi support for netbooks, laptops, and PCs with Atheros Wifi chipsets (more coming soon!).
Firefly Linux is a Live CD, but can easily be run from a USB drive using UNetbootin.
Live USB: Boot Firefly using a USB flash drive (512MB or greater). You’ll need to download UNetbootin for either Windows or Linux, along with the ISO below. In the UNetbootin window, choose the “Disk Image” option and point it to the downloaded Firefly ISO.
The default username is “firefly” and the password is “firefly”. The root password is “root”.
