Cucumber Linux is a Linux distribution created by Scott Court in 2016 for the i686 and x86_64 architectures. It aims to provide a practical, usable distribution suited for server and desktop usage. Cucumber Linux places a large emphasis on following the Unix Philosophy favoring a simpler, more modular design. It uses System V Init strives to remain a Systemd free distribution.[2][3][4]

The design of Cucumber Linux is influenced by Slackware and Linux from Scratch. This is made evident by the fact that Cucumber Linux uses Slackware's pkgtools. However, despite this Cucumber Linux is maintained and developed independently.[1]
