It’s distributed as a dual-arch ISO image
The m23 server operating system is distributed as a dual-arch ISO image that has been engineered to work with both modern and old computers, supporting 32-bit and 64-bit instruction set architectures.
Supports English and German languages
The minimal boot menu of the ISO image supports English and German languages. It will allow you to start the installation of the m23 operating system directly, simply by pressing the Enter key on your keyboard at the boot prompt.
The installation is text based
m23 features a text-mode installer that requires users to choose a language to be used for the entire installation process and the final system, enter a password for the root (system administrator) account, enter a hostname, IP address, netmask, gateway, boardcast IP and DNS nameserver IPS for your new server, partition and format the disk drive and install the booloader.
Can only be administered via a web browser
Being designed from the ground up as a server-oriented system, m23 can only be administered via a web browser from another computer on the same network. It can easily be integrated with existing clients and features group functions, support for mass installations, support for software RAID, IP management functionality and a user management system powered by LDAP.
Offers NFS (Network File System) support
Another interesting feature of m23 is that it offers out-of-the-box NFS (Network File System) support for storing home directories. Users will be able to easily install, update and remove software packages from their Linux kernel-based operating systems, as well as to create backups or build their own package source.

- The latest version of m23 extends the spectrum of supported client distributions by adding support for Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and Linux Mint 17 Qiana. For Linux Mint, the desktop environments Mate, Cinnamon, Xfce and KDE are available - for Ubuntu, there are a minimal KDE/Kubuntu Desktop, Unity (3D), Xfce, the Lubuntu Desktop and Gnome.
- Even while adding support for the two new distributions - and especially the desktops - accounts for most of the time needed to build this new release, there have also been made other improvements to m23. Among these you will find the improved user authentification by LDAP or the new testing framework "AutoTest" which automatically checks the m23 server installation ISOs.
