PaiPix Linux – a compilation of Free Software, based on KNOPPIX, that is meant to be used in any environment but with special emphasis on science and technologies.
It should provide an open door to the public including not only the tools used by the scientists but also the best free applications that make your computer more interesting for any usage. If you like it for office, video or even gaming, who knows if someday you can get curious and give a look at the scientific applications that are in your DVD. PaiPix can be used at home, in medium and even large size organizations where the sharing of the compressed DVD image and the included afs file system support make it extremely powerful.
PaiPix Linux also serves to support clusters of distributed computing (using the paipix-terminalsever), for data servers, farms simulation farms and user laboratories.
PaiPix linux combines all the versatility of KNOPPIX with optimized configuration for several languages, including Portuguese. It intends to not only serve in document editing tasks but also for advanced technological and scientific systems.
Using the paipix-remaster script, you can change the default language of your iso image or add your personal files to the PAIPIX DVD.
PaiPix 7.10 is based on Debian stable “Etch”.
The latest version of PaiPix 10.2.19 was based on Knoppix 3.8.
The project founder is António Amorim, from University of Lisbon, Department of Physics, Portugal.
