editor's review





openmamba GNU/Linux is an open-source and completely free operating system that has been designed from the ground up to be deployed on notebooks, desktops, servers, as well as single-board computers.

It’s distributed in multiple editions, as Live DVDs

This is the original and first edition of openmamba GNU/Linux. It is available for download as a 32-bit Live DVD ISO image of approximately 3GB in size. The i586 tag on the Live DVD means that it supports only 32-bit applications.

There are three versions of this Live DVD, supporting the English, Italian and Spanish languages. However, openmamba GNU/Linux is distributed in multiple editions that are downloadable from the project’s homepage.

The boot menu is comprehensive, includes many useful options

From the boot menu, the user can start the live system in different modes, with a specific mamba version or screen resolution, as well as in debug mode. It is also possible to perform a system memory diagnostic test.

KDE Plasma never looked so good on openmamba GNU/Linux

The default and only desktop environment of the openmamba GNU/Linux operating system is KDE Plasma Workspaces and Applications. It provides users with a modern, traditional and familiar interface that is extremely easy to use.

Includes a wide-range of open source applications

As the Live DVD has almost 3GB in size, it includes a wide-range of open source applications. Among some of the most popular ones, we can mention the Amarok audio player, Chromium web browser, VLC Media Player, Kaffeine video player, Miro music and video player, DVD Style DVD-Video authoring software, Clementine audio player, Ardour digital audio workstation and Blender 3D modeller.

In addition, the GIMP image editor, digiKam photo management program, showFoto photo viewer and editor, UFRaw RAW image converter, aMule P2P file sharing client, FileZilla file transfer client and Mozilla Firefox web browsers are also included.
