Turkix is a Mandrake based live Linux distribution.
Version: 3.0Turkix linux distribution is a Mandrake based LiveCD.
Operating System: Linux
It currently supports just the Turkic languages like Turkish and Azerbaijani. But the second major release (2.0) will be in English.
Turkix comes with a rehack of rpm packaging system, called as "rpmx". This is nothing but an embedded wrapper of rpm, which leads to the new virtual file hierarachy that is similar to the one that belongs to Windows and MacOS operating systems.
This new system will make Windows migrators feel at home, while making them get closer to the classical UNIX file hierarchy. Everything stays where they are, but the automated symbolic links system will make a reorganized shadow copy of your file system.
The new file hierarchy is as follows:
---- ./Personal Files
-------- ./~programname/Configuration Files/*
---- ./Temporary Files
Turkix brings you the most complete, and easiest control panel ever. Turkix Control Panel is a merge of KDE Control Center, Mandrake control tools, ports of some external configuration tools and our own additions. All of them are merged in a single window, namely Konqueror.
"My Computer" functionality of Windows has been imported into Turkix. From one single window, you get full access to your file system, other hard drives, your removable devices (cdrom, floppy etc..), network (nfs, samba) and internet connections, printers, configuration wizards, Turkix Control Panel and much more.. You also have the possibility to change the shortcuts as you wish.
Turkix imports also, the excellent innovation of MacOS X, Exposï¿½ This gives you the oppurtunity to work with lots windows concurrently, while not being lost in them; just by one click, you get the thumbnails of the open windows on your screen, then you can select which one(s) to minimize and which one(s) to maximize. Will make you remember "Minority Report" of Stephan Spielberg.
Thanx to XFree86 4.4.0 and latest linux kernels, Turkix supports a wide range of hardware.
Changing your system's default language has never been easier. Using a system tray, you can change the language of your operating system. This is especially good while running Turkix in live linux mode.
