Wolvix Hunter is a Live CD. Even thought the file size less than 500MB, but Wolvix Hunter has a lot of features and softwares. One of good features on Wolvix is Wolvix has dosbox installed by default, very cool!!

Omake / Addition : Previous version of Wolvix isn’t good as the newest version (1.1). The previous version has a less features and less softwares. Wolvix 1.1 is more better than previous version, and has more features and softwares. The only important thing (in my opinion) that’s not included on Wolvix 1.1 is Wine. Wolvix 1.1 is one of very best Linux distro afterall.

Conclusion : A best description about Wolvix is written from Wolvix website (http://www.wolvix.org) : a desktop and multimedia oriented Linux distribution designed to suit the needs of regular to advanced desktop use. After seeing the softwares above, you should agree with that🙂

Wolvix is one of very best linux distro, I really recommend it for everyone. I have two most recommendation about linux distro, first is Wolvix, second is DreamLinux. I have installed Wolvix Hunter 1.1 on my home PC and my office PC. No need a lot of CD/DVD of Linux distro if you want a simple but good, easy, and has complete softwares. A live CD that can be installed to your PC is a very good choice today, Wolvix is one of it.

    maap, sy tdk begitu menguasai bahasa inggris! sy tau distro Wolvix dr blog-nya Nono Elsabarto. sy mempunyai cd live Wolvix Hunter Edition, memang walaupun tampilannya sederhana sekaleee.., ttp Wolvix memiliki fitur yg lengkap, multimedia berlimpah, office, internet yg sangat lengkap dan sangat powerfull. keunggulan lainnya, distro yg sangat enteng! bs berjalan lancar pd P2-300 RAM 128Mb!
    kesimpulan akhir: Wolvix = kecil-kecil cabe rawit
