DeskWeavers (formerly EveryDesk) is an open source distribution of Linux that runs directly from a USB thumb drive and does not replace an existing operating system, such as Microsoft Windows.
It’s distributed as a bootable USB imageThis special and unique operating system can be downloaded via Softpedia or directly from its official website (see link above) as a bootable USB image in the IMG file format, archived with the 7zip compression algorithm.
Designed to be used in public institutionsWhile DeskWeavers has been designed from the ground up to be used in public institutions, it can also be successfully used in small and medium-size enterprises, as well as at home as a desktop system.
A native Linux desktop that requires no installationThe best feature of this operating system is the live mode, as it allows users to use the distribution without installing anything on their computers, even if the PC has a Microsoft Windows OS installed.
Allows the execution of native Windows applicationsThanks to its built-in VDI (Virtual Desktop Infrastructure) layer, the user will be able to execute applications that have been originally designed to run only on the Microsoft Windows operating system.
Uses GNOME as the default desktop environmentDeskWeavers uses GNOME as the default graphical desktop environment, which features the classic two-panel layout, providing users with a productive, familiar and easy to use interface so you can quickly launch applications and interact with running programs.
Contains a standard set of open source applicationsAmong the pre-installed applications, we can mention the Chromium and Mozilla Firefox web browsers, Geeqie image viewer, Gedit text editor, GNOME Disk Utility (Disks), Nautilus file manager, LibreOffice office suite, as well as the EveryDesk native medical software, which integrates a DICOM viewer and a secure log management system that meets privacy laws.
