After a major restructuring PAIPIX version 5 is now available for download both for the 32-bit and AMD 64-bit architectures. A single image is now used for all supported languages. For hard disk installation, PAIPIX is now using the KANOTIX facility that renders the installed system pure Debian and therefore much more robust to upgrades. There was a lot of work over a long time that was put into this major restructuring that now includes OpenOffice.org 2.0.1, KDE 3.5.1, Apache 2, PHP 5, MySQL 5, PostgreSQL 8.1 and X.Org 6.8.
Information about the Paipix
PaiPix Linux is a compilation of Free Software, based on KNOPPIX live linux, that is meant to be used in any environment but with special emphasis on science and technologies. It should provide an open door to the public including not only the tolls used by the scientists but also the best free applications that make your computer more interesting for any usage. If you like it for office, video or even gaming, who knows if someday you can get curious and give a look at the scientific applications that are in your DVD. PaiPix can be used at home, in medium and even large size organizations where the sharing of the compressed DVD image and the included afs file system support make it extreemely powerfull.
PaiPix linux combines all the versatility of KNOPPIX with optimized configuration for several languages, including Portuguese. It intends to not only serve in document editing tasks but also for advanced technological and scientific systems.
Using the paipix-remaster script, you can change the default language of your iso image or add your personal files to the PAIPIX DVD.
This work was only possible because Free Software experts have created all the infrastructure allowing a gigantic world-wide community of software volunteers develop what is already, without any doubt, the best operative system the world.
However, because (r)evolutions take time, many companies that are developing systems - which in the end are designed to store in practice the technological and scientific knowledge of mankind - still work in a closed form (proprietary). There is still a reason to use other operative systems while the community of free software does not this knowledge to the whole humanity. In the following table we include a correspondence that facilitates the migration to free software for each application. All mentioned free software is installed in PaiPix!
PaiPix Linux also serves to support clusters of distributed computing (using the paipix-terminalsever), for data servers, farms simulation farms and user laboratories.
