ⓘ BeatrIX

BeatrIX is a GNU/Linux,live CD-based Linux distribution started by Steven Watsky, it was designed to look very simple, in order to be as easy to use as possible to new users. A new BeatrIX desktop has just four icons. Hence, anyone who has some computer experience will be able to use BeatrIX.

BeatrIX is a small operating system, taking up only 200MB. The liveCD fits into 80 mm discs that can store up to 184 MB of data.

BeatrIX uses Linux 2.6.7 and GNOME 2.8 as its GUI desktop. It has productivity tools such as OpenOffice.org 1.1.2, Mozilla Firefox version 1.0 web browser, Gaim version 1.0, etc.

BeatrIX has been discontinued since 2005 due to Steven Watskys lapse in health. Another distro called BeaFanatIX is using the code of BeatrIX and continuing development.
