About Pinguy OS

PinguyOS is a small but very popular distribution. You can often find us listed on the Distrowatch 'league tables'. PinguyOS is somewhat of a niche in the Linux world as we focus on 'normal users', not geeks.

The whole point of PinguyOS is to be as simple and straight forward to use as possible. After all, most users don't want to spend hours tweaking and configuring a machine just to get it to work, most people want it to 'just work' - that's where PinguyOS comes in.

Apart from being easy to use, PinguyOS also looks great. Linux has matured hugely over the last few years and most applications have an extremely polished look to them (long gone are the days of Linux distributions that look like Windows 95). Many of these applications are added to PinguyOS by default in order to give it that extra 'bling'. For example, Docky gives users quick and easy access to their most commonly used applications and folders by way of a desktop launcher. Gnome Shell gives users the ability to quickly and easily search for anything on their computer in just one mouse click and Gloobus Preview allows users to see thumbnails of their images and music cover art before they are opened.

With all these extra applications installed you may think that PinguyOS is slow to run and needs a powerhouse computer to run smoothly. Nothing could be further from the truth. There are many added system tweaks in order to make PinguyOS run flawlessly - even on low powered machines. All of this means that the recommended system requirements of PinguyOS are exactly the same as Ubuntu.

All of the above means that PinguyOS is the choice for anyone thinking about wetting their feet in the Linux pond. Simply burn a DVD, run it live to test and then install. That's it, no extra CODEC's, applications or tweaks will be needed to get you up and running. If you need help though, you can always visit our forums.

We are very proud of PinguyOS and we hope that you enjoy it as much as we do!

This is the amount that will cover hosting costs and maintenance on the servers. But if we ever want to expand the project we will need more.
