Viperr 4

A free Linux-based operating system that uses elements from CrunchBang and Fedora
Viperr is an open source and completely free operating system that can be easily described as being lightweight, useful, simple and original. It includes stable software, uses the lightweight Openbox window manager and various utilities that help users customize their desktop in style.

Distributed as 64-bit and 32-bit Live DVDs

The OS can be downloaded as either a 64-bit or a 32-bit Live DVD ISO image. They must be burned onto DVD discs or writte on USB flash drives of 1GB or higher capacity in order to boot them from the BIOS of a computer.

Boot options à la Fedora Linux

The distro borrows the boot screen from Fedora, allowing the user to start the live environment with default boot options and drivers. In addition, it is possible to start the operating system in safe graphics mode, run a memory test or boot from local drive.

Beautified Openbox window manager

As mentioned, the OS uses Openbox as its default and only desktop environment, which has been greatly beautified with a bottom panel from where the user can interact with running programs and switch between the four virtual workspaces. The main menu can be accessed by right clicking anywhere on the desktop.

Easy to use and modern installer

The graphical installer is also borrowed from Fedora, which means that users will have no problem installing Viperr on a local drive. Just select your favorite language for the installation process, select a keyboard layout, setup the date and time, configure the network, partition the disk, setup users and passwords.

Bottom line

While the WorldWide (WW) edition of Viperr includes language and keyboard configuration tools, the French (FR) edition is dedicated to French-speaking users. Viperr is fully compatible with Fedora, but it is not supported by the Fedora Project or Red Hat companies at all.
