What is wattOS Linux?

wattOS is a fast desktop Linux distribution based on Ubuntu. It is a free operating system that focuses on a small footprint, low power, and a simple quick interface that you can easily add whatever you want to it. Using the lightweight Openbox window manager as its default user interface, the distribution strives to be as energy-efficient as possible so that it can be used on low-specification and recycled computers.
