Project name: Linux AIO (All In One)
Project product name: Linux AIO ISO
Linux AIO project
Linux AIO project was started 2014-07-16 by merging projects:
- Ubuntu AIO
- Linux Mint AIO DVD
- LMDE AIO DVD
- Debian Live AIO DVD
That was a reasonable decision.
Our plan was to bring some of the major Linux distributions (Ubuntu and flavors, Linux Mint, LMDE, Debian Live, Fedora…) with different desktop environments on one ISO file that can be burnt on one DVD/DVD DL or USB 4GB+/8GB+ flash drive. Every one of them can be used as Live system, with no need of installation on hard drive, or can be eventually installed on computer for full system experience.
- Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Ubuntu GNOME, Ubuntu MATE, Xubuntu and Lubuntu on one ISO (i386, amd64 and efi ISO)
- Linux Mint Cinnamon, MATE, KDE and Xfce editions on one ISO (32bit, 64bit and efi ISO)
- LMDE Cinnamon and MATE editions on one ISO (32bit and 64bit ISO)
- Debian Live stable GNOME, KDE, Xfce, Cinnamon, MATE and LXDE releases on one ISO (i386 and amd64 ISO)
- Fedora Live Desktop (GNOME), Cinnamon, KDE, LXDE, Xfce, MATE Compiz spins releases on one ISO (i386, amd64 and efi ISO)
If the size of ISO images for 32-bit, 64-bit and EFI version exceed the capacity of a DVD we can make a Mix and Lite versions that can fit on a DVD.
Also, if the size of ISO images for 32-bit, 64-bit and EFI version is larger than 5GB and can’t be uploaded to Sourceforge we can split the ISO image into two/three smaller files and upload them separately.
For creating the ISO images for EFI releases we use Grub2 and for all other releases Syslinux. For splitting ISO images we use Double Commander and .7z.
For every ISO file we make md5sum and torrent file.
ISOs are tested in VirtualBox.
We created two branches of Linux AIO releases:
Basic difference in this releases is in the way how Linux AIO boot menu works and the release time between every new version.
Primary versions will follow every official/stable release of (regular circle of publishing) distributions which are included in this branch:
- Ubuntu and flavors
- Linux Mint
Secondary versions will be published periodically, with possibility of canceling or starting new versions. This will primarily depend on you and your interest on specific releases. The release with the biggest amount of your interest will be given a chance to be transferred into the Primary branch and, therefore, provide a regular circle of publishing. In Secondary branch are included following distributions:
- ALT Linux
- Point Linux
- Zorin OS
Itself Linux AIO don’t bring nothing new, spectacular, nothing that has not been seen. The project is not perfect, there are some problems. On some of them we can’t influence, while others we are trying to solve and overcome them. During this time, since the project started, we boast a good user response, a large number of downloaded ISO images, and innumerable articles on the many famous portals/sites/blogs that deal with Linux and Free software. Definitely, Linux AIO did not go unnoticed, what’s more, whatever happens in the future Linux AIO has already made its mark.
Our wish is that the teams/communities behind GNU/Linux distributions point to the need for this type of distribution of GNU/Linux system, and to adopt this method of distribution.
