Welcome to Freon
NOTICE: Freon is still well under heavy development and can be slow to progress!
Freon OS is a lightweight GNU/Linux micro-distribution, designed to
run on most popular virtual machines. Freon is great for personal or
business based VM handling and is included with the essentials to
make it functional in any use case; especially well for a user learning
the ins-and-outs of a simple GNU/linux distribution. Based on BusyBox,
and shipped with GNU C library, CHTTPD, dropbear,
grub-legacy, and more.
