Linux Distributions

Gnoppix Linux – Debian and Kali-based Linux Distribution

Gnoppix Linux started in 2002 with the focus of allowing users to run a Linux operating system for any purpose without installing it or making any changes to the computer’s configuration. There are two ways to use Gnoppix Linux. You can live boot from a DVD/USB, or install it on a desktop/laptop or other device.

Gnoppix is based on Debian Linux with parts of Kali Linux. Gnoppix comes complete with a set of additional software repositories containing the latest 64-bit versions of the latest desktop environment/framework/toolkit.

Minimum System Requirements:

i5 processor
20GB disk space

There is also a Gnoppix i386 image for even older computers.

What's a Linux distribution ("distro")?

A distro provides the user with a desktop environment, preloaded applications, and ways to update and maintain the system.

Each distro makes different choices, deciding which open source projects to install and provides custom written programs. They can have different philosophies.

Some distros are intended for desktop computers, some for servers without a graphical interface, and others for special uses. Because Linux is an open source operating system, combinations of software vary between Linux distros.
