The ultimate Linux experience into a Live CD, includes five minimalist operating systems

editor's review






ULTILEX is a Bulgarian distribution of Linux that is available for download of free. While it is not a computer operating system, ULTILEX acts as a container for some of the most popular Linux distributions that follow a minimalist approach.

It is distributed as a dual-arch Live CD

The project is distributed as a dual-arch Live CD ISO image that has approximately 700 MB in size and fits perfectly on a CD disc. It can also be written to a USB flash drive and it is fully compatible with computers supporting either of the 64-bit or 32-bit instruction set architecture.

Contains five different distributions of Linux

As mentioned, ULTILEX is not an operating system, it is a container that contains five different distributions of Linux, including Slax, Puppy Linux, Tiny Core, SystemRescueCD and Parted Magic.

Offers advanced boot options

The Live CD boot menu is the most important feature of the ULTILEX project. From here, the user can start any of the aforementioned Linux distributions in live mode. For example, you will be able to start a non-persistent session of Slax Linux, start Puppy Linux with the X.Org display server, start Tiny Core with the VESA display server, start Parted Magic with media support, as well as to start SystemRescueCD in 32-bit mode.

Each of the aforementioned boot entries come with more options, such as the ability to start Slax with the KDE or Fluxbox desktops, start Puppy Linux and Tiny Core in console mode, boot the 64-bit edition of SystemRescueCD, and run Parted Magic with various modes.

Includes a wide range of system tools

In addition to the above, users will be able to run “boot.kernel.org” (BKO) and boot their computers with the operating system loaded from the Internet, boot existing OSes that are currently installed on the computer, as well as to run various hardware or memory diagnostic utilities (Super GRUB Disk, Super GRUB Disk 2, FreeDOS, Smart Boot Manager, HDT, Memtest86+, etc.).
