"The strangely named Linux Console seems to be designed to work
equally well as a Live distribution and as a permanent
installation. It offers an LXDE based desktop alongside a
collection of standard applications. It could be used as a typical
desktop Linux distro, but I have a feeling that it could see some
use as a front-end in appliance type set-ups that need to be a bit
more of a typical desktop layout than some of the kiosk or media
player distributions. However, I'm not absolutely sure what the aim
of this distro actually is.
"Linux Console isn't derived from any of the main distributions.
Variety is the hallmark of the Linux scene, and it's a boon to be
able to tailor the choice of distro to a given situation. However,
in such a crowded field, the smaller distributions have to offer
distinct functionality and a niche to be worth looking at."
