Morphix – a live Linux distribution based on Knoppix.
Morphix is a modular distribution so it means that it consists of a number of parts which together form a working distribution.

Morphix flavours:

Morphix LightGUI – Aimed at lower-end PCs, LightGUI features the XFCE4 desktop and contains a reasonable amount of lighter tools. It was the initial version of Morphix, and the aim has been to keep LightGUI small enough to have it fit on 210MB CDR(W). LightGUI includes Abiword, Gnumeric, Dillo, Firefox, Gaim, Xchat, GIMP.

Morphix Gnome – (formerly: Morphix HeavyGUI) was for some time the only conterpart of LightGUI. Including Gnome, OpenOffice.org, Mozilla, and the kitchen sink, Morphix Gnome was aimed at office users with more recent machines.

Morphix KDE – it contains the whole KDE suite of programs, as well as Mozilla and other applications. Morphix KDE sits inbetween LightGUI and Gnome when it comes to size, and fills up approximately 400MB of space on your CD-ROM.

Morphix Game – An odd-ball in Morphix, this flavour contains the very light IceWM and a very large number of Open Source games: BZflag, Frozen Bubble, Freecraft, and many, many others, as well as it includes one or more demo versions or free full versions of commercial Linux games.

Morphing-Morphix – it provides the quick way to start Morphing and making your own LiveCD. Just boot the CD and start Morphing, no need to install tools, compile applications or switch operating systems. All is required is some space on a connected hard drive.

All the official Morphix live CDs contain the Morphix installer, as stated above. This tool allows users to easily install their Morphix (or derivative) live CD onto a hard disk.

Morphix was under development by Alex de Landgraaf between 2003 and 2007.

There are many derivates created on the top of Morphix, such as: Dreamlinux, Elive, GNUstep Live-CD, Clusterix, Freeduc-Sup, GNIX, Sork, NepaLinux, TOBIX, ZoneCD, etc.

Mandriva Linux (previously: Mandrake Linux) – an independent Linux distribution, originally forked from Red Hat Linux.

The system features the most popular desktop environments, a set of pre-installed application for daily usage, and integrated its own graphical configuration utilities tool ‘Mandriva Control Center’.

Mandriva Linux uses ‘urpmi’ package manager, which allows installation of packages by automatically installing all the needed dependencies, from various media, including network/Internet, CD/DVD and local disk. Urpmi has a graphical front-end called ‘pmdrake’, which is integrated into the Mandriva Control Center.
The RPM package management system is also available in the system to perform operation on the packages.

Mandriva Linux was started in 1998 under the name of Mandrake Linux.
The first release was based on Red Hat Linux 5.1, used the K Desktop Environment 1, and was released in July 1998.
In February 2005, MandrakeSoft merged with Brazil’s company called Conectiva to the new Mandriva S.A. In May 2015 Mandriva SA has been closed.

The last stable version of Mandriva Linux 2011 was released in August 2011.

Derivatives:
Most Mandriva Linux developers went to Mandriva fork called Mageia.
ROSA is a fork of Mandriva created by former Mandriva developers too.
OpenMandriva Lx has been built on the top of ROSA as its fork.
PCLinuxOS initially derived from Mandrake.
Unity Linux (discontinued) is a Mandriva based distribution.
