Description

# Summary:
Tux Hat Linux is a Arch Linux Based Distro. On the Distro there's a main menu script call setup-tuxhat, where you can install the system and setup stuff for the system. Tux Hat Linux uses AwesmeWM a very lightweight window manager, and Motif Window Manager starting with v2.6. MWM is usally the ROOT WM I use and AwesomeWM is the main USER WM.
v3.2 and up will also include dwm 6.0.
v3.3 and up will also include Console Display manager.

    BTW Tux Hat Linux is based on Arch Linux since v2.3 and v2.6 and up is using awesomeWM not fluxbox. over all this Live ISO is amazing, and I put a lot of work into it.. even with the scripts to install it to the HDD. Have fun :) Keep it simple, stupid! o/
