Abstract

The same reasons behind the development of so many general purpose Linux distributions are behind the proliferation of task-oriented distros. The flexibility of Linux and the advantages of Free Software make it reasonably easy to make a Linux distribution that can fulfil a unique purpose. These distributions can be customized, but all of them were made with only one type of task in mind, as specific as building a firewall to protect a network from security breaches or as ambiguous as scientific research.
