Vixta Linux distro looks like Vista

Posted on Tuesday, October 16 2007 @ 09:26:04 CEST by

Information Week talks about Vixta - a new Linux distro based on Fedora that looks and feels a lot like Windows Vista.
There's hardly any information on the effort, other than a short blurb, which says it's based on the Fedora distro of Linux. Fedora is itself a project which evolved out of the Red Hat community, and is still sponsored by the enterprise-Linux powerhouse.

Vixta appears to be the brainchild of one A. Paulo Santos, who has posted most of the messages on the short Vixta-info mailing list, including one announcing the availability of Vixta release 094.

Vixta's home page touts the imminent availability of version 095, and enumerates the goals of the project as follows:

1. Absolutely free, in every sense;

2. Spread Linux to the "masses";

3. ABN – Absolutely No Config.;

4. User-Friendly;

5. Eye-catching. Familiar look and feel.
