SadOS is a Linux distribution for artsy hackers
SadOS is inspired by the fictional Linux distribution used by the webcomic character Don Depresso (http://dondepresso.rujic.net).
*Why Use SadOS?*
SadOS is basically a distribution for artsy hackers (and, of course, sad people).
It’s packed with system utilities (making it highly useful as a USB stick or live DVD), security and penetration-testing tools for the curious, and some nontraditional choices in graphics/imaging tools.
SadOS runs the lightweight Xfce4 for its desktop environment, so it will perform swiftly even on older hardware.
SadOS 1.0 is based on Arch Linux, while SadOS 0.9 is based on Xubuntu 12.04 and Backtrack Linux 5.
SadOS was originally sold on bootable USB sticks, which is why the README applies to running it from a USB stick. Most of the README is still relevant even if you are not booting SadOS from a USB stick.
