Pioneer Linux is a desktop-oriented, Kubuntu-based distribution targeted at new as well as experienced Linux users. The product comes in two flavours: as a freely downloadable live and installation CD, and as a commercial boxed edition with CrossOver Office and technical support.
Test and try before you install That's right, you can test Pioneer Linux running off the CD before you decide to perform an installation. This means that you can actually run your operating system and learn it before you install or make that critical decision to leave your previous operating system installation. ASPEN for older computers is not a live CD.

Browse the Internet safely Yes it's safe! You can browse the Internet safely when you use Pioneer Linux. It's not the same anymore with people dropping viruses or keystroke loggers because of that old unsafe browser you've been using for years! Go wild and have fun!
Listen to music You can listen to your favorite music while working using the CD Player included or make cuts and create your own CD from your music! You decide, the tools are included!
