Xinix, pronounced “zen-ics,” is an innovative newcomer to the world of Linux distros.

Now in beta, this distro has been spearheaded by a single developer who slowly is bringing other programmers on board to move things along. Despite its early development status, Xinix has potential for Linux fans who like to experiment with new platform concepts and do not mind trying out an operating system that is not yet fully functional.

Essentially, Xinix is an interesting side project for serious Linux fans — it definitely is not suitable for Linux newcomers.

You need a clear understanding of how to configure and troubleshoot on your own. The Xinix experience is highly reminiscent of the Linux home computer experience in the operating system’s early days.

Developer Dave Henderson, who has 15 years experience as an IT administrator, sees Xinix as becoming the world’s next generation of operating systems. It currently runs on conventional desktops and laptops, and mobile platforms will be coming in the future.
