FTOSX – a Linux distribution from Italy based on Fedora. It uses the KDE desktop environment and offers support to 32-bit x86 (i686) platform. The goal of the FTOSX Project is to work with the Linux community to build a complete, general-purpose operating system exclusively from open
source software, but specially to be a Personal Operating System.

The FTOSX Desktop Project starts in August 2000, to create a development environment to solve the Graphical User Interface under GNU/Linux OS.
The name “FTOSX” stand for “Future Technologies Operating System based on the Linux Kernel and the X Window System”, therefore, basically X stand for X Window System.

The name is similar to “MacOSX” from Apple Inc, that adopt UNIX inside the OS.
In the past years the FTOSX takes the direction to be the arena to Develop the Personal Operating System, originally called YourLinux.

FTOSX Desktop 2004 is optimized for Pentium PRO (and later) CPUs, but also supports Pentium-class CPUs. This approach has been taken because Pentium-class optimizations actually result in reduced performance for non-Pentium-class processors.
* Recommended for text-mode: 200 MHz Pentium-class or better
* Recommended for graphical: 400 MHz Pentium II or better

The first version was launched on June 19, 2003, the latest version was 2004 rc4 which was launched on September 8, 2004.
FTOSX was managed by a single person: Dr. Giovanni A. Orlando.
