Shift Linux is a Linux project that was created by the Neowin community. Based on Morphix Linux, Shift is Debian based live CD; therefore it has access to all of the software and applications as other Debian distributions. Several versions of Shift Linux have been developed to produce for computers with lighter or more robust hardware configurations. We have produced Shift with Fluxbox as the predominant desktop manager for lower resource computers, and Shift with Gnome and KDE desktop managers, for heartier machines.
The Shift Linux live CD and the links to the Neowin technical website are designed to give the user an experience of being part of the Neowin community as well as having a simple, easy-to-use Live CD that can be installed to your hard drive, if you enjoy the way our distribution works. Shift is a free, GPL-based Linux distribution that can be freely distributed or modified.
Shift Linux 0.5 has all of the most commonly used packages that are available and is designed to be extremely fast as a live CD. Our newly designed website is full of information about Shift: FAQs, wallpapers and theme designs, updates, contests. Please feel free to browse and comment on our content.
The project team consists of members with a wide variety of experiences and talents. Each has contributed in his / her own way. Whether team members have worked on the distribution itself, or the Shift website, their efforts have been dedicated to creating this quality product.
Comments on how we can improve this distribution, and bug reports can be posted on our forum (at Neowin).
