Momonga Linux is an independent and completely free distribution of Linux designed for Japanese-speaking users who want to replace their commercial and deprecated Windows XP operating system with an open source OS.
It’s distributed as installable-only DVDs
The Momonga distribution is available for download as installable-only DVD ISO images, which will allow you to install the operating system on any computer that supports the 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x86_64) instruction set architectures.
A Live CD edition is available separately
A Live CD edition of Momonga Linux is available separately, designed from the ground up to allow users to try the operating system without installing anything on their computers. It is available for download on Softpedia.
You can install a new system or upgrade an existing one
The first thing you’ll see when you boot any of the DVD ISO images from the BIOS of a computer, is the boot menu. From there, you can install a new system or upgrade an existing one or install the Momonga OS with a basic video driver.
In addition, it is possible to rescue an installed system, boot an existing operating system that is currently installed on the local drive, as well as to perform a system memory (RAM) diagnostic test.
Uses Red Hat’s graphical installer
The distro uses Red Hat’s graphical installer, called Anaconda, which will require you to choose a language to use during the installation process, select the appropriate keyboard layout for the system, as well as to choose an installation method.
Additionally, you must select a timezone and configure the system clock, enter a password for the root (system administrator) account, select an installation type and choose which software packages to install.
The choice of desktop environments and applications is yours
When using Momonga Linux, the choice of desktop environments and applications is yours. There are some default apps when you install the distribution, but they can be easily changed.
