FreekBox 2

This box had lower hardware specs which evolved over the years. It was based on Debian GNU/Linux (woody).

FreekBox 1

This was the first standardized box we built. It was based on Mandrake GNU/Linux.

(Mandrake was an earlier incarnation of what is now known as Mandriva Linux. It is based on the Redhat Package Management (RPM) system, unlike Debian and Ubuntu.)
