Morphix

Web site: www.morphix.org
Origin: Netherlands
Category: Desktop, Web kiosk

Media: Live CD
The last version | Released: 0.5-pre6 | September 2007

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.
