Monomaxos – a Linux distribution that virtually covers all the user’s requirements from a Live DVD so can be tested without installing it on a hard drive. An effort has been made to ensure that almost all programs included in the distribution as well as the actual operating system are translated into the Greek language.

It fully supports all known types of multimedia files and web elements and can even be used as a Media Center. It has a full office suite with functional spell-checking in Greek and has a graphical interface with stylish graphics available even for computers that do not have full 3D support capabilities.

A very important feature, added with version 4.0, is ability to install it on a hard disk and through Windows. It creates a dual boot system where the startup of the computer simply chooses whether to start the Monochrome or Windows. This setup mode allows for a very fast and “bleak” uninstallation if the user desires it.

For those with older computers, a version called Monomaxos Lite edition has been created which requires very low RAM/16MB graphics card requirements, as is the case of netbooks. For the creation of the Lightweight version of Monomaxos, it used Ubuntu 9.04 mini CD base. The interface in this version is very lightweight LXDE and can be installed on ext4 file system.

ESCLinux – a Linux live-CD, made for carrying interpreters, compilers and libraries for a few IF authoring systems. It boots from the cdrom drive or from an usb key, and doesn’t need any other operative system on the hard drive (e.g. Microsoft Windows) to work. It focuses mostly on Inform, but TADS and Hugo tools are included too.

The first version of ESCLinux was released in 2005 (?) and was based on Knoppix, with KDE desktop as default.
After that, up to version 2009, ESCLinux was based on Arch Linux and was using GNOME desktop environment.
The latest version of ESCLinux 2014 is based on Linux Mint 13 “Maya”, which is based on Ubuntu 12.04.5 LTS (Precise Pangolin), and features Xfce desktop as default.

As the developer said (translation from French):

I wanted the system to fit on a mini-CD, but it was expense of available features: this cd was a little too complicated to use optimally for those who do not know linux.

I have restarted this project by releasing it on a complete cd, with a much more modern desktop: KDE. The fact that this cdrom is based on the linux-live script makes it much easier to work with. Unfortunately, it is still not easy to install the live-cd on a hard drive, even if it is possible, this is not for the beginner. On the other hand, it is planned all that it is necessary to connect by the network on this machine (ideal if one has several computers available).

The maintainer of ESCLinux is Eric Forgeot.
