Desktop environment: Xfce

Media: Live CD
The last version | Released: 1.1 | December 17, 2003

Morphix-NLP – a Live CD Linux distribution with a rich collection of Natural Language Processing (NLP) applications. Though the field of NLP has undergone decades of intensive research, software designed in the NLP community are often scattered around the net and are not known by the larger computer user community. Consequently, most NLP software can not be found in mainstream distributions even years after the first public release.

The purpose of this CD is twofold:
– In the first place, it tries to break the software acquisition and installation barrier facing many researchers and students in the NLP community by providing most NLP related software on a single Live CD.
– In the second place, the CD can be used to promote Natural Language Processing among average computer users. Simply plugging the CD into cd-drive and watching some NLP applications in action, most users will get some knowledge of Natural Language Processing and what NLP can do.

One goal of Morphix-NLP is to include as much NLP software as possible. However, NLP includes a broad range of topics and there are new software emerge every day. It very likely that some great NLP applications are not included just because the maintainer did not notice it.

Here is a general guideline on choosing software to include:
– Only software with a license that permits freely redistribution and unlimited usage can be included. Academic-free license is ok. Please bear in mind that Open Source project will always have a higher privilege for inclusion than Close Source, binary only distributed software.
– Commercial software, 30-day trial software, limit-function demo software will not be included. This is not a demo CD shipped with magazines.

The project developer is Zhang Le.
