Asturix (previously: AsturLinux) – an Ubuntu based Linux distribution targeted to desktop users, which offers its own desktop called Asturix On.

The project started in 2008 by Luis Iván, a then-12-year-old teen that was really bored of school. With its third version it was the world’s first OS integrating facelogin. Later Google added the same feature to Android. Its fourth version spotted Asturix On, the first desktop environment fully based on web technologies.

Until 2012 Asturix was an Operating System based on Linux – AKA a Linux distribution – focused on User Experience.
