Shift Linux is a project that was created by the Neowin community. Shift is Debian based, therefore it has access to all of the software and applications as other Debian distributions. Neowin's Shift Linux is 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. There are no restrictions with Shift.
Shift Linux 0.5 (RC-2) includes three fully branded versions: KDE, Gnome, and Flux, all Live CDs. Included in this version are most of the most popular packages to include wireless support and a desktop installer. In addition, we have newly created packages such as:
- k3b (All Versions)
- Rhythmbox (All versions)
- Bluetooth Support (All versions)
- HP Printer Drivers (All versions)
- Power management and laptop detection (All versions)
- NTFS Read/Write support (All versions)
- Envy (All versions)
- New branding!
- Extremely fast...You'll forget it's a CD in 5 minutes.
Thanks again to the Neowin members who have made this distribution possible.
