Linux KDuXP is an operating system based on the world’s most popular distribution of Linux, Ubuntu, and designed from the ground up to be used as a starting point for Microsoft Windows users who want to migrate to an open source OS.
Available for download as a dual-arch Live DVD imageThis custom Ubuntu OS is available for download as a dual-arch Live DVD ISO image that runs well on both 64-bit (x86_64) and 32-bit (i386) hardware platforms. The hybrid ISO image can be written to either a DVD disc or a USB flash drive of 4GB or higher capacity in order to boot it from the BIOS of a PC.
Boot optionsIf no keyboard key is pressed, the Live DVD will automatically boot the live environment with default options and drivers in 10 seconds. Pressing any keyboard key during the 10-second timeout will reveal the boot menu that allows you to start the live session in compatibility mode, in text only mode or in verbose mode, start the installer directly, test the computer’s memory, check the integrity of the bootable medium (only if using a DVD media) and boot from the first disk.
Familiar and productive desktop environment that looks like Windows XPThe desktop environment of Linux KDuXP has been highly customized to look and act like the one of the Windows XP operating system developed by Microsoft. It comprises of a single taskbar located on the bottom edge of the screen from where the user can access the main menu, launch applications, interact with running programs or system tray functions.
