Linux Netwosix Author Responds to Questions
Product is a "Stable, Complete and Cleaned GNU/Linux Box for Your Network-Security Related Jobs"

With the passing of the time, over the past five years, i have mainly used GNU/Linux for networking and security oriented purposes. I have tried many Linux distributions, but simply have never found the right distribution for me and my work.

So I started working on Linux Netwosix. Linux Netwosix aims to be a powerful and optimized Linux distribution for servers and network-security related jobs. Due to its lightweight nature, portability, and high configurability, Linux Netwosix could be the right choice for every system administrator or security specialist, in my opinion. It has also a powerful ports system (Nepote), similar to the BSD systems, but more flexible and usable.

With the new 2.x release, among the many program updates and distribution enhancements, you will find a stable, complete and cleaned GNU/Linux box for your network-security related jobs. Linux Netwosix 2.0-rc1 uses the latest 2.6.14.5 stable kernel, bringing you advanced and reliable performances.

From the 2.0 new branch to the next one, Linux Netwosix will try to offer the first real valid alternative to historically secure systems like the *BSD ones, providing core operating system to deliver stability, performance, and support for mission-critical application deployments. Using Linux Netwosix the user could benefit from outstanding robustness, scalabilty, and reliability.

I downloaded the single ISO image from one of the official mirrors, burned it, and rebooted. Netwosix uses a text-based installer, similar to but simpler than a Debian, Ubuntu or Slackware installation, and is easy enough to use. If you have installed a Linux distro before, you should be able to install Netwosix. The bootable CD-Rom kernel is compiled with a relatively small set of options, that should be enough to boot the machine and proceed with installation.

The thing with the link is something like that:

IE or FF are looking for a machine named HTTP through DNS and Netbios, but firefox makes a request to www.google.com (?) wich seems to reply to go on Microsoft's site.

http://http//www.netwosix.org/screenshots.html

This has got to be a hoax. I don't buy it. This article is just too stupid. He talks about his own distro like he's never installed it before. ("I downloaded the ISO from official mirrors..." etc.)

The article also contains no information of value, just a bunch of conjecture. "It is good", "I like it", "I am happy", blah blah blah.

Btw, you are all getting Microsoft's website because he forgot the colon (":") in his link. Firefox is trying to lookup the host "http" which fails so it does a search, and for some reason it finds Microsoft.com and redirects you there.

Just read the Netwosix article - very good, however, when I click on the link for the screenshots I'm immediately redirected to www.microsoft.com! Firefox 1.5 on Debian Sarge.

Thought you'd like to know...

Look at your link:

http//www.netwosix.org/screenshots.html

it is supposed to link your browser to the Netwosix site.

but what happen? My browser (FF 1.5) jumps on the Microsoft site insteed!!!

I found this in the properties of the link:
http://http//www.netwosix.org/screenshots.html

I think you will bring some correction as soon as possible. Thanks for this.

Vincenzo Ciaglia has authored an article that describes his Linux Netwosix release, and answers many questions being posed by developers. He reiterates much of the information that he conveyed in a recent interview with LinuxWorld, but also added some new information. One brief outtake from the article (which is posted in full at LinuxWorld): 'The installation is simple and with the new release, Linux Netwosix 2.0-rc1, there's a new setup tool based on the Crux one that really help every user because it is simple and user-friendly for a security/network oriented GNU/Linux distribution. The Setup script will show a simple list of available 'base' packages you can choose to install on your system.'
