Linux KDuXP 2.0 Rev8 / 3.0 Alpha 9
Available for download as a dual-arch Live DVD image
This 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.
If 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 XP
The 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.
