JaCL Linux (Just a Command Line Linux) is a live CD distribution (a Knoppix remaster) of the Linux operating system. JaCL Linux is designed to be run as a command line driven server or utility system.

Most major command line applications or server software available in a standard Linux distribution are available in JaCL Linux. Most X11 server software and applications have been intentionally removed from the distribution in order to streamline the
distribution for use as a server or utility system.

Examples of server or utility uses for JaCL include: web server, ftp server, DNS server, SMB server, rsync server, syslog server, local disk mirroring utility, remote rsync disk mirroring utility or hardware diagnostics utility.

The removal of the X server and X applications streamlines the distribution, reduces maintenance, and may reduce the risk of vulnerabilities.

Additionally other applications have been intentionally removed or omitted from the distribution, including applications which may pose a security risk if the server is user level compromised (i.e. network scanning utilities and packet sniffing tools).

The result is a full command line live CD distribution which is about half the size of a full Knoppix CD distribution.

Here are some key features of "JaCL Linux":

security warning banners (a requirement in some work environments)
a security hardened base system
an easy mechanism for systems administrators to automatically configure the system at bootup
most server and utility applications included (the fact that Knoppix
