AcademiX GNU/Linux is a Debian based distribution developed especially for teaching. The distribution was built on the Debian Linux distribution (stretch/buster) and is provided with free software (as in free speech) for education. The programs included in the distribution are for all levels of education – from primary school to higher levels and/or university – but we also added various free utility programs.
The Academix Linux distribution includes an installation wizard that can be used to install a variety of applications from various domains – math, physics, chemistry, geography, biology, statistics, electronics, amateur radio, graphics, office, music, audio and video editing, programming – which are accompanied by interactive virtual labs, as well as a virtual microscope developed with NASA. Robotics laboratories successfully complete the list of educational programs provided by the distribution.
A special section is dedicated to teachers and allows them to create various articles and content aimed for both student use and online publishing. The setup wizard provides more than 150 educational programs to be installed easily, with just one click.
Some of the programs are Debian-specific, others were developed and are used by various universities from US and Europe. The Mate-based desktop environment offers a good compromise between low resource usage and a modern and intuitive user interface, so that the distribution and the software distribution can run smoothly on older computers that are still used by various educational institutions.
Most of the educational software provided in this distribution is licensed under the GNU GPL or BSD licenses, so Academix GNU/Linux costs for the end user are represented only by the maintenance and constant update. The distribution can be used both as a Live DVD or as a standalone operating system installed on the hard disk. A feature that is experimental makes it possible to use Academix GNU/Linux in an aula.
