    Linux distro using less BW


    Hello guys,

    My name is Javi, I work for a humanitarian NGO working specially in Africa where we use low BW satellite connections.

    For working activities we use Windows but for the free time I recommend using Linux, specially to ensure that there's no background updates like Windows updates, antivirus and applications taking a lot of BW.

    I would like to kindly ask you if you guys know a Linux distro that is not having any background bw consumption so we have all the bw for the user.

    Thank you very much!

    any of them do this if you turn off automatic updates.

    In addition, you can download updates manually and share them between all your Linux boxes.

    there exists a specialised distro with exactly this limitation in mind!!!

    unfortunately i forget the name, but it's made for offline use (most of wikipedia is installed etc.) and optional online use too, of course.
