Review: Atomix Linux 3.2

Filed under

After several years' work, a team of young Linux experts from Serbia has released Atomix Linux 3.2 to the public. Considering the long development period -- more than three years -- my expectations were fairly high, but Atomix met my expectations.

Atomix Linux is a derivative of Fedora Core Linux. When I've tested Fedora Core 4, applications such as, Gaim, Evolution, and ImageMagick have crashed a few times. During the two months of testing Atomix I haven't had any programs crash or freeze, which I found impressive. It appears as if the Atomix developers have focused on making sure that all applications function reliably.


Since Atomix is a Fedora derivative, it's no surprise that it uses the Anaconda GUI-based installer. Anaconda is simple and accessible, even for users who are inexperienced. Choose the packages carefully, however. For some reason, the Atomix team did not include some popular applications with the set of programs that are installed automatically.
