Poseidon Linux

Welcome to the mirror for Poseidon Linux

Poseidon Linux was designed as a friendly and complete desktop, based on open source software and aimed at the Brazilian/International scientific community. This operating system is based on Ubuntu and inspired by Quantian Linux. It offers several specific tools in the areas of GIS, 3D Visualization, Mathematics, Statistics and several otherfields of research. It also has all the software expected in a modern desktop such as an office suite - with spell checker, web browsers, e-mail readers, instant messaging, to cite but a few.

And for Poseidon Linux 3.2 they are pleased to announce for the very first time two versions for 32 and 64 bits computers.

With Poseidon Linux 3.0 they started a new era for our project, since the new release supports Brazilian Portuguese, Spanish, English and German. With Poseidon 3.1 they expanded the included languages to have also Greek, Italian and French. Another improvement is at the cd boot, because now the users are now able select their own languages right from the beginning when starting the live-cd.

Poseidon Linux is here!
