LEARNIX is a Linux distribution which runs off CD-ROM, a Live CD. That means there is no longer the need to install LINUX on a computer to be able to run powerful UNIX software.
LEARNIX is based on KNOPPIX with added software for building simulations, namely RADIANCE and ESP-r.
LEARNIX is compiled by the Low Energy Architecture Research uNit, LEARN, of the London Metropolitan University.
