Distributed as 32-bit and 64-bit Live CDs
The distro is available for download as two Live CD ISO images, one for each of the supported hardware platforms, 32-bit and 64-bit. The ISO images will fit perfectly on CD discs or USB thumb drives of 1GB or higher capacity.
Choose between Kazakh, Russian and English languages
Among the default boot options, we can mention the ability to start the live system with support for either of the Kazakh, Russian or English languages, run the operating system in failsafe mode either by loading it to RAM (system memory) or straight from the bootable medium, as well as to perform a memory diagnostic test.
The Xfce desktop environment has a traditional look
As mentioned, Kazsid Linux is built around the lightweight Xfce desktop environment, which means that it can be used on low-end computers or machines with old/semi-old hardware components. Xfce boasts a traditional design comprised of a signle panel located on the bottom edge of the screen.
Comes pre-loaded with powerful open source apps
The distro comes pre-loaded with some of the most powerful open source applications. Among these, we can mention Synaptic Package Manager, FileZilla, Iceweasel, GParted, Gigolo, Thunar, Laptop Mode Tools, Midnight Commander, Geany, Poedit, Klavaro, GIMP, LibreOffice, XSane, Ristretto, Audacity, Psi+, Remmina, Transmission, uGet, GNOME MPlayer, and WinFF.
Build your own Kazsid Live CD
Its main target are Kazakh and Russian users, but the English language is also included in the Kazsid Linux distribution. Kazsid is also distributed as a source archive, which means that users have to build the Live CD themselves.
For that, you should have a computer with the Debian GNU/Linux Wheezy or Sid installed, the live-build package (>3.0), as well as the debootstrap package. Follow the instructions provided at https://github.com/crayxt/kazsid page to generate the Live CD.
