Kalango Linux – a Brazilian Linux distribution designed for desktop’s users.

Kalango Linux is based on Kurumin/Knoppix/KANOTOX, which features the same hardware detection and package installation system. Kalango is full of programs of daily usage, which lets you: surf the internet, receive emails, enter texts, make and manipulate spreadsheets, edit images, listen to music, watch videos and more. It comes with Openoffice, Mozilla Firebird, Mozilla Thunderbird, KDE 3.14, k3b and Blender.

All this in a very pleasant environment to use / work, and best of all is that the system runs entirely from the CD simply by burning the CD image (or using a bootable floppy) that you download, and setting the BIOS to give boot from the CD-ROM.

It uses the Debian package management tools to install, remove and upgrade all the packages.

The project founder is Leandro Soares dos Santos.

KANOTIX – a Debian stable based Linux distribution, with advanced hardware detection.

KANOTIX uses the latest stable packages of KDE and LXDE desktops from the Debian stable and backports repository.
It can be used as a Live DVD/USB disk system without touching a hard drive, but can be installed to the hard disk using the graphical acritoxinstaller.

The founder of KANOTIX is Jörg Schirottke “Kano”.
The distribution derived from “Kano’s Scriptpage for Knoppix” and is under active development from 2003.
Between 2003 and 2006 KANOTIX was based on Debian unstable “Sid” up to version 2006-01-RC4. After that the base system has benn moved to Debian stable.
A few dewelopers of KANOTIX left the project after moving it to Debian stable, so they started a new Debian ‘Sid’ project called Sidux.

New iso images of Kanotix 2020 Silverfire have been released in March 2020, after 6 years of break at the project development.
