The Live system is built on top of Gentoo Linux and uses Xfce as the default desktop.
In addition to the anti-virus scanner that automatically starts when Live system starts, rescue CD comes with a set of basic applications that are part of the Xfce environment. If your computer has an active Internet connection, the antivirus program will automatically update its antivirus signature databases and scanning engines.

Older versions of BitDefender Rescue CD were based on KNOPPIX.

heads – a Devuan based GNU/Linux liveCD distribution aimed at people who like the aspect of controlling their privacy and anonymity on the Internet.

In heads, the init of choice is not systemd. systemd is a huge piece of software that, while being free software, has not been audited for security since its creation. Being big as it is, it is hard to do so, and as time goes, it’s becoming even tougher to audit systemd.

Another important thing is that heads uses only free software. On the other hand, with heads you only use free software, meaning you can gain access to any source code that is included in heads, at any time. Using free software it is far easier to avoid hidden backdoors and malware that might be in non-free software. We hope this makes you a tad more aware of the importance of free software and its uses.

heads was created, as a response to Tails 2.0’s transition to the systemd service management system.

The live system without the possibility of installation on a hard disk is available for x86 and x86_64 PC machines.

PostX (previously: Audax) – a lightweight Linux distribution with a Openbox desktop based on Debian Jessie (8).

By default the distribution uses only free software. The distribution can also be burnt to a cd or a usb stick due to its small size. The overall system is designed to be lightweight and as such it uses as low amount of RAM as possible while featuring many common tools for the regular user.

PostX can be used directly from a media as a live distribution or installed to a hard drive.

The PostX 0.2.5 and an older version called Audax was also based on Debian, but used the Fluxbox window manager as default.

The live-mode default username is: audax
and the password is: live

GuruMan Linux – a KDE spin on Manjaro KDE Linux 18. GuruMan is based on x86_64-stable with kernel 4.19.1.

The GuruMan Linux KDE-18.0-stable-x86_64.iso can be installed in either a VM (Oracle VirtualBox or VMWare Tools) but I have integrated OpenVM-Tools into the ISO image which should work for either environment.

You can, of course, install GuruMan Linux on bare metal using a utility like Etcher (which I recommend) to create a bootable USB or create a bootable DVD and install it that way.

PCManFM File Manager has been incorporated into this ISO for those who want to replace Dolphin as their file manager of choice due to the security issues surrounding Dolphin that don’t exist in PCManFM. I left Dolphin in this distro, however, just in case you prefer that file manager instead regardless of security risk. Filezilla & gftp have been included as file transfer applications to choose from. My preference is gftp. If you use FireFox Web browser (my defacto Web browser in Linux), you will see an icon that pops up on the Task bar asking if you wish to install Plasma Browser Integration to support the add-on in Firefox for KDE. This is recommended to install. This distro uses the sddm display manager and pamac which replaces octopi as the package manager in GuruMan Linux.

The project founder is Dan Calloway.
