-sta[tic] li[nux] is a new suckless.org production and project that creates a
-new linux distribution with the aim to be based on a hand selected collection
-of the best tools for each tasks and each tool being statically linked
-(including some X clients such as xterm, surf, dwm, dmenu, mplayer). It also

+Note, this is pretty much contrary to what Ulrich Drepper reckons about static linking.
Due to the side-benefit that statically linked binaries start faster the
distribution also targets performance gains.
It is expected that the first usable version will be available during Nov 2009.
