Trustix was created by Trustix AS in 1997, but went bankrupt in 2003.
Comodo Group bought the assets in November 2003. Shortly thereafter Comodo announced the end of the free version of Trustix Secure Linux.
After 2005, Trustix Secure Linux continues to be maintained by a very small team of developers in India.
