Distributed as a 64-bit Live DVD
You can download this Sabayon-based operating system from its official website or via Softpedia (see link above) as a single Live DVD ISO image that has been engineered to support only the 64-bit instruction set architecture.
Default boot options include the ability to start the live environment with default boot options and drivers, perform a fresh installation as a workstation, media center or Steam Big Picture, boot in safe graphics or console modes (with or without boot splash), as well as to check the disc for defects (only if using a DVD media), change the language and keyboard map, or add extra kernel parameters.
Modern GNOME desktop environment with top-notch apps
While the distribution still uses the Sabayon boot splash, it provides users with a pure GNOME desktop environment that includes top-notch applications, such as the Chromium web browser, Exaile music player, LibreOffice office suite, Evolution email and calendar client, GIMP image editor, Transmission torrent downloader, uGet download manager and XBMC Media Center.
Includes in-house built applications for students
The best part of this distribution is that it includes various applications that can be used as scientific algorithms to calculate pH, as well as solutions of equations and inequations. It also features support for anonymous Internet surfing by using the controversial Tor proxy network system.
With a custom installer on board, a modern desktop environment, a bunch of powerful applications tailored for students and the ability to install Windows applications using Wine, Birds Linux is indeed a great distribution of Linux that proves to be quite stable and easy to use.
