About Gnoppix

Gnoppix Linux was developed in September 2002 and was based on Debian GNU/Linux 3.0 (Woody).

After the successful public launch of Gnoppix in 2003, Gnoppix Lead Andreas Müller was hired by Canonical to implement Gnoppix Linux LiveCD functionality into the 1st Ubuntu 4.10 aka Warty in 2004. Since Ubuntu and Gnoppix Linux became identical, the Gnoppix Project was stopped, as there was no longer a need for it. Andreas then founded the Kubuntu Project.

Gnoppix Linux was relaunched in 2021 during the COVID-19 pandemic. Gnoppix is and was always based on Debian GNU Linux. It is free and secure to use, no personal datas were taken nor uploaded to somewhere.

Gnoppix Linux is a user-friendly Linux distribution that makes the power of Linux accessible to everyone. It comes with a familiar user interface and all the apps and tools you need for everyday use.

Gnoppix Linux is the perfect operating system for people who want a fast, reliable, and secure operating system that is also easy to use.
