Available for download as a dual-arch Live DVD
The distribution is available for download as a dual-arch Live DVD ISO image of approximately 1.4GB in size, suitable for either a 32-bit (i386) or 64-bit (x86_64) computer and deployable on a DVD disc or a USB thumb drive of 2GB or higher capacity.
When booting the DVD image from the BIOS of a PC, the user will be prompted by a boot loader, from where he or she can start the live system with a specific screen resolution (1280x1024, 1024x768, 800x600 or 640x480), start the live OS in safe graphics mode, or boot an existing operating system from the first disk.
Windows-like graphical desktop environment powered by KDE Plasma
As mentioned, the main emphasis is on the newbie-friendly graphical desktop environment, which is powered by KDE Plasma and has been designed to look like a Windows Vista desktop.
It features the same window decoration, a single taskbar located on the bottom edge of the screen, with an obvious Start button, as well as a system monitoring desktop widget. Be aware though, that you must log in using the root/root username/password combination.
Includes mostly KDE-specific applications
The OS includes mostly KDE-specific applications, but also some third-party ones like the Skype VoIP client, Pidgin multi-protocol instant messenger, XMMS audio player, as well as the powerful Synaptic Package Manager modified for RPM packages.
If you are tired of viruses, spyware, trojans, and any other type of malware, do not hesitate to download and install the aLinux operating system, as it will free your computer and make your day a little bit more enjoyable.

In a hurry? Add it to your Download Basket!
- aLinux 15.0 released, updates the graphical installer, dialogues, etc., easier to install. Same old system but with just enough updates to be 'usable'. KDE 3.5.10, X.Org 7.7, glibc 2.17, GCC 4.7.2, Linux kernel 188.8.131.52, Perl 5.16.2, Skype 184.108.40.206 (MSN and Windows Live support). Main web browser is Firefox 17.0.1. Distro is optimized for i686 now. Kopete has been removed and replaced with Pidgin messenger. It's still a distro aimed at computers from the past (mine included), so if you're looking for the latest bleeding edge, you won't find it here, but if you're looking for something a bit more complete from a past 'yesterday' operating system that still manages to work in 2013, this may suit you.
