Re: [alpine-devel] Stable and Secure Distribution Supporting Xen
One more note on my criteria set which
led me to Alpine: I need something lightweight. The whole root
directory must fit in at most 400-500 MB.

I'm choosing between Unix-based operating systems that support Xen. My criteria
are the following:
- Compatibility: I want to use this OS on a various set of commonly used
hardware. I have restricted the CPU instruction set scope to x86_64, but there
are a vast range of graphics cards out there.
- Stability: The packages and kernel used must be stable versions. Many main
distributions such as Debian and RedHat follow his strategy.
- Xen Stability: Stable Xen support is necessary
With these criteria in mind I have reached to the following distributions:
NetBSD, Alpine Linux, FreeBSD, Debian and CentOS. I am currently using Alpine
Linux which claims that it is designed with security in mind, however my recent
Experience with it showed many bugs.
