Media: Live DVD
The last version | Released: 6 | August 9, 2011

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.

Media: Live CD
The last version | Released: 0.8 | February 12, 2007

Knoppel – a project based on Knoppix, the main goal is to provide a live-cd for the Greek community based on the needs of Greek speaking users.

Knoppel is a “live” version of linux. This means that you can boot from your CD-ROM without touching anything on your hardware and specifically without requiring a partition on your hard drive. It is a distribution based on Canon.

Knoppel is the distribution distributed to the visitors of Hellug and ELLAK’s kiosks at the Infosystem Thessaloniki Exhibition.

The general philosophy of KNOPPEL is to have the smallest possible recording capabilities. For this reason, the existing partitions are or are not attached at all or attached only to “read”. If you right-click on the device you can select “Change to Recording / Reading” to make the device recordable.
CAUTION: Recording to NTFS partitions can result in data loss, since Linux does not fully support this file system! However, the DOS and FAT32 file systems are safe to write.

KNOPPEL = KNOPPix + ELlinika
It’s an easy solution to run Linux on your computer from a CD without having it installed permanently.
