Linux "CRUX PPC 2.7 is now available. It works on Apple 32bit 'NewWorld' G3/G4 and Apple 64bit G5, Genesi PegasosII and Efika, Acube Sam440ep, YDL Powerstation, IBM Intellistation POWER and IBM Power Systems servers. CRUX PPC 2.7 is, as usual, released via two different installation ISO: 32bit and 64bit. The 32bit version is based on a single lib toolchain instead the 64bit one comes with a multilib toolchain. These two versions share the same ports tree."

I would say Crux was inspired by the KISS mentality of Arch - but with a fixed release cycle - and the ports system from NetBSD. Desktop, server, thin client.. doesn't matter as long as you are willing to read the manual.

More likely the opposite -- Crux predates Arch.
