Debian-Nonprofit Preview CD

What is Debian?

Debian is a free operating system (OS) for your computer. An operating system is the set of basic programs and utilities that make your computer run. Debian uses the Linux kernel (the core of an operating system), but most of the basic OS tools come from the GNU project; hence the name GNU/Linux. Debian GNU/Linux provides more than a pure OS: it comes with more than 13000 packages, pre-compiled software bundled up in a nice format for easy installation on your machine.

What is Debian-NP?

Debian-NP is a project within Debian to build a Custom Debian operating system designed to fulfill the requirements of small non-profit organizations. The goal of Debian-NP is a to be complete, 100% free software system for all common tasks that non-profit organization need. The project aims to to provide this functionality in a integrated and documented stable free desktop environment.

What is Morphix?

Morphix is a modular Linux distribution providing the main tools available in Linux from a bootable CD-ROM drive. It is based on Debian but runs off a CD-ROM drive without affecting any of the contents on the hard drive so it's perfect for previewing Debian and GNU/Linux.

How Do I Begin?

TO START: Insert this CD into your CD-ROM drive and then reboot. The only requirement is that your computer is set to boot using the CD-ROM device. Data on your system is not touched, unless you specifically state it.
