BeatrIX 2005.1 Linux is a free, compact (Less than 200 megabytes), operating system aimed at both office and home users who want something simpler, safer and superior to Microsoft Windows, and that will run on just about any IBM-compatible PC made in the past 10 years. It runs as a live CD or it can be installed to hard drive. As a live CD, it does not touch your hard drive or touch any other operating system you have. SImply insert the CD, re-boot, and about two minutes later, you're surfing the Internet, writing letters, sending e-mail and instant-chatting. All this from a CD the size of a beer coaster.
BeatrIX is designed differently than any other system. Yes, it's Linux, but it doesn't look like Linux. Or Windows. Or Macintosh. It simply looks like a computer desktop. That desktop has only four icons -- all easily recoginsable by anyone who's used a Windows, Mac or Linux computer in the last decade. So, anyone can use it with little or no help. It took us a year to release our first version because so much time was devoted to usability and stability. In addition, BeatrIX is upgradeable now to the latest Linux without hassle!
