Xivta, Amazing Linux distro that having similar interface like Windows Vista. Actually VIXTA is develop from Fedora based Linux Distribution and KDE desktop environment. It have resembles Microsoft Windows Vista with all the user friendly & eye catching features on Vixta GUI interfaces. Some example like Vista Gadget and vista start menu and taskbar interfaces.
Well the aim of Vixta is pretty much simple, and this is how it reads :
Vixta is a Fedora-based Linux distribution designed to be user-friendly and eye-catching, similar in look and feel to Windows Vista. Trying to bring linux to the “masses”, not just sysadmins.
if you thinking to run windows application, you might require to turn on the wine windows API to run windows application. But basically Vixta linux distro has bundle application with Konqueror instead of Explorer, OpenOffice instead of Office, and Firefox which is sufficient for novices user.
However, Using the name ” vixta ” and similarity of interfaces perhaps will bring lawsuit from microsoft. Just don’t know whether the vixta linux distro project will be continue for long periods or not ?
