LuninuX OS is an open source and completely free operating system based on the world’s most popular distribution of Linux, Ubuntu, which in turn is based on the award winning Debian GNU/Linux distro.
Available for download as 64-bit/32-bit Live DVDs
As Ubuntu and Debian are distributed as Live DVDs, so is LuninuX OS, which comes with Live DVD ISO images for the 32-bit (i386) and 64-bit (x86_64) hardware platforms.
Boot options à la Ubuntu Linux
When booting the ISO images from the BIOS of a PC, using either USB sticks or DVD discs, the user will be prompted to choose a language for the live session. After choosing your favorite language, the bootable medium will automatically start the live environment in 5 seconds.
However, you can choose to start the graphical installer directly and permanently install the distribution on a local drive, perform a system memory diagnostic test, boot an existing OS from the first disk, as well as to check the integrity of the DVD media.
Clean, fast, beautiful and modern graphical desktop environment
The GNOME-powered graphical desktop environment of LuninuX OS is clean, fast, beautiful and modern, providing users with a top panel for quick access to applications and places, as well as a dock (application launcher and task manager) located on the bottom edge of the screen.
Includes top-notch open source applications
The software collection of LuninuX OS is really great, comprised of the Mozilla Firefox web browser, Blender 3D modeller, FileZilla file transfer client, GIMP image editor, Transmission torrent downloader, Shotwell image viewer and organizer, Empathy IM client, Evolution email and calendar client, Steadyflow download manager, as well as the entire LibreOffice office suite.
In addition, the VLC Media Player, Stellarium planetarium software, Rhythmbox music player and organizer, Sound Converter audio converter, PiTiVi video editor, Cheese webcam viewer, Audacity audio editor, Bombono DVD-Video authoring software and Brasero CD/DVD burning utility are also included.
Summing up, LuninuX OS is a really wonderful Linux/Ubuntu/Debian-based operating system that should be used by anyone who wants a clean, fast, stable, reliable and productive distribution.
