What is Definite Linux?

Definite Linux is an Operating System (the set of programs which make your computer work and through which you communicate with the computer) which is similar to UNIX and is used throughout the world by everyone from home users with one computer to large corporations with huge networks of computers.

Linux can communicate easily with, and be installed alongside other Operating Systems (eg Microsoft Windows) and offers unrivaled stability, reliability, flexibility, value-for-money and power.

Definite Linux offers users a modern graphical interface, compatibility with most standard hardware and easy installation - also, once Definite Linux is installed on your computer you will have access to vast amounts of software which you can legally use on as many computers as you wish for as long as you wish.
