Omega is an open source and free distribution of Linux inspired by and derived from the popular Fedora operating system, which in turn in based off of Red Hat Enterprise Linux. The distro is built around the GNOME Classic desktop environment, and it’s suitable for portable or desktop computers.

Distributed as a 32-bit Live CD

The Omega Linux operating system is distributed as a Live CD ISO image that fits perfectly on a CD disc and contains software packages optimized only for the 32-bit (i686) instruction set architecture. It can also be used on modern computers supporting the 64-bit (x86_64) hardware platform.

Offers standard boot options

The Live CD offers standard boot options, such as the ability to boot the live system with normal configuration, start the live system with the default kernel, but check the bootable medium for defects first (only if you’re using a CD disc), run a memory test, as well as to boot the local drive.

Classic and productive graphical session based on GNOME Classic

Being based on Fedora and Red Hat Linux, the distribution uses GNOME Classic, which provides users with a classic and productive desktop environment. It features a two-panel layout. Tip: at the display manager, click the “Log In” button to login immediately, instead of waiting 1 minute for the automatic login function.

Contains a minimal set of open-source applications

Besides the GNOME-specific tools (Cheese, Brasero, Totem, Rhythmbox, Gedit, Evolution, etc), the distribution contains a minimal set of open-source applications. Among the most popular ones, we can mention the Mozilla Firefox web browser, Pidgin multi-protocol instant messenger, gThumb image viewer and GIMP image editor.

It is no longer under active development

Be aware that the Omega Linux distribution includes old software, which won’t receive updates or patches. Because of this, and because of the fact that it is no longer under active development, the distro has been archived for historical references purposes only.
