...on DistroWatch, a very sudden spike in interest. I don't see anything on crux.nu concerning the release of 2.8 but it's about the right time of year. Anyone know anything?...

    Hi Dan!
    I know we have been getting a few more than usual requests for help with CRUX but that's about it. I was also wondering about the way it seems to spike up and down. It got to top 25 or something like that awhile back, about the time the latest version was released, it seems.

    It just occurred to me that one of those questions was about running CRUX as a MineCraft server. I remember seeing a page a while back where this guy was saying CRUX is the perfect distro for it and that it is. Maybe that explains the sudden interest.

    Hey, guys!

    I've not heard anything about a new release.
    But the number of posts regarding CRUX really makes me miss it right now!

    Well just, wow. Check out MineOS CRUX.

    EDIT: I just watched the video. I've got to try this!

    That looks like a great solution for a lot of folks.
    And even taking just a cursory look at the documentation, I think plenty of the users looking for a server will be quite pleased with this.

    Jay, it also looks like a good solution for a minimal LAMP server for just about anything. My kids love MineCraft. Another Linux friend who lives in another town setup a MineCraft server and my kids play with his kids on the server. I freely admit that I really enjoy playing MineCraft too! It's one of the few games I've seen that appeals to both kids and adults.
